Heaven in the attic

On the roof you can look down and watch the birds fly.
It was a blue-sky-and-sunshine-day when I decided to go up for a bit of birdwatching and found a hole in the roof.



Inside the new room was coming along lovely, with shelves and things and tables and paints.




First thing in was the owls and the kingfisher, beautiful bright blue bird.







The floor is wonderful for slipping and sliding and batting and rolling. There are places to hide and to jump and to sit and to watch.




Out of the window the trees are now white with blossom on black branches, and the green field is dotted with sheep and lambs.




Magic. Was it there all along?

What a fantastic playroom for you, can you play slide down the roof from the window? What a kind person she is to provide all this for you, do let her colour in in it sometimes won't you?

Have the builders and their mess gone away then? It is looking very tidy and appealing. And will ginger cats be allowed to inhabit the space or only as supervised "visitors?'

Hi Pixie. Gosh that looks like fun...did you climb up the roof and then hop in through the skylight? It looks like a wonderful room to spend lots of time in.
