The prompt was ‘and so it begins’
The gavel rings out and so it begins.
Somehow, they’ve managed to buy a house at the auction. It wasn’t what they went for, but it’s what they got, and there’s a lot of work to be done. New wiring, plumbing, windows. There’s no central heating and the roof looks a bit ropey. They need to put in more insulation as well, and maybe a new front door.
Then there’s plastering, decorating, a new kitchen and bathroom and finally furniture. But what an exciting way to start their married life and a project to fill the void left now that the wedding is done.
