...Thank you so much for all you have done in relation to the extension. We are really delighted with it (although still waiting for all the snagging to be done). We are frantically decorating the hall, stairs etc. before the new carpet arrives. When that is done you must bring Maria round to see it if she would like to. Please pass on our thanks for her lovely design -- it is just so spacious..."
