Let There Be Light! Updates in the Living Room

And.... I'm back! So I've had a whirlwind couple of weeks whilst I've been away from the blog - some of it dusty and messy, some of it rather lovely. The week before last, as you may recall, we had the electrics replaced in the living room, master bedroom and hallways...
