Alphabet Project – Letter ‘P’

Letter ‘P’ is for poem!

Our recent building work revealed some surprising insights into the history of our cottage, a beautiful home with bags of character built in 1929. As they tore down the walls we saw a glimpse of life along the years, some blue tiles from an old fireplace, some orange wallpaper, an old coin, a hand written note….all hidden away for years then briefly exposed as the house changes shape again. I bet these rooms could tell some stories! We know the man whose parents built the house as their farmhouse, and was in fact born here. I don’t know how many people have lived here since but I do know the house has had 3 ‘Alice’s’ live here…! The lady who built it was Alice and we didn’t know this when naming our daughter but I think perhaps she was in our thoughts somehow.

When we were designing the bathroom for the loft studio I wanted to incorporate a freestanding cast iron bath, although I hadn’t realised quite how heavy it would be and took 5 men to carry it up – they all deserved a cup of tea after! I wonder if it’ll ever come out, but if it does, one day someone will read the poem I wrote on the underside of the bath and perhaps wonder who I was. It’s exciting to think of who might find it one day…
