IF I HAD A HAD A HAMMER...

I do have a hammer and I have been hammering in the morning, lunchtime, afternoon and evening, and look what I have done...
Me and my Hammer!

 It has been a very exciting week, my hands are a bit sore but I haven't got any splinters, which is amazing if you think about all the wood.

 We fixed the wood on by hammering at one end then straightening and then hammer at the other end.  To stop it curving or bowing as Dad says we then put nail in the middle of the wood.  We started at the bottom of the door side and very quickly it started to come together. We have used loads of nails and it is quite tricky to get them in straight.


Bertie has been making something for me - I think it is a door stop, but he says wait and see.



I have now finished the door and window walls and am very pleased and it already feel like my space inside.  The walls have made a colossal impact!

My new home

I am going to have a look at making curtains today, mum has a bag of nice material and I have chosen some with blue and red checks.  I measured the window and have made a plan for both windows but I will only make one at a time.

Red and Blue curtains held on with golden rings for the main window- I hope to get some at the auction.
When I go to the auction next Monday and am hoping to get things for the treehouse, fingers crossed.  I'm off now, maybe I will do curtains tomorrow, its really sunny and mum is getting the water slide out - woohoooooooo

Wibble Wobble

Not the treehouse...a jelly. We made out of the damsons from the tree that is getting in my way.  Revenge! 

Had a great weekend got lots done.  My cousins came on Saturday and we played in the treehouse, they loved it.
We played mums and dads and even though I might be a bit too old it was really good and just the kind of thing I wanted to do in the treehouse. 

Later on Saturday Dad started a waterfight when he was meant to be watering his plants. 

We all had a go. It is one of my favourite things to do and Ruby and Grace loved it too. 


When Grace got cold Dad took her in and she had a hot bubbly bath. 

 On Sunday our friend Robert came, then something really exciting happened, his dad gave me some wood for the wall from the house they are building next door.
Me and my wood
  Nothing will stop me now.  I am so happy,  he wants some of our Apple and Blackberry jam in return for the wood. So Dad, Bert, Connie and I went to pick the berries after tea tonight and will help mum make it with her secret recipe tomorrow. I love making jam...and eating it!

This is my favourite picture from my weekend

PEANUT AND THE WONKY DOOR

Dad and I have been finishing off the ground floor roof and it looks good.  Lots of holes but apparently that will be OK when it is finished. The wonky door keeps getting stuck when we open and close it so we have given it some extra strength on both sides and now it works perfectly, this took ages but definitely worth it and luckily it is still wonky, just the way I like it.
 The damson tree above the treehouse is full of fruit and we are waiting for them all to drop - I have to keep sweeping them off they are going to mess up my balcony!

Peanut my hamster is doing really well and I feel so happy that she is running around like normal. She is so cute and lovely, I am lucky to have such a nice hamster. Here she is

Its all coming together

 Hello, I have been very busy with all sorts of nice things like, having sleepovers, going to the beach, went to see Midsummer Nights Dream, Harry Potter and playing with my friends.  Before all this I got the frame finished for the downstairs and put the window and door in.  Looks good doesn't it?

The door looks wonky but its OK
Perfect fit- phewy
This window needs some curtains...
My hamster Peanut has been ill and have been really worried about her. Peanut's cheek pouch came out whilst my Grandad was visiting and she has had an operation to remove it so she only has one left. It was very hard not to get too upset because I was worried she might not be OK, but she has taken her medicine really well and we went back to the vet yesterday and she was really happy with her.  To cheer me up Alana and I played the first game of cards when it was warm on the balcony.  It was perfection.
 

I have got a couple of very busy days as Dad is off work.  We are building the frame for the bedroom area now.  We need to build the base out of the tree because we are waiting for the damsons to finish before we cut the branch, the steps are done from the main room to the crows nest - they are like a ladder. 
PERFECTION
