Ooh nearly missed #worldsnakeday ... can’t be having that! We are home to a number of rescued exotic beasties. They live in the Beastie Hoose on site. Many people don’t realise the commitment involved with keeping a companion creature, but particularly so when it comes to exotics. Our beasties are kept in conditions which are regularly inspected by an external and specialist body to ensure we give them everything they need to thrive & have a good life #willowsanimals #willowsanimalsanctuary #animals #exotic #exoticanimals #snakes #sanctuary #sanctuarylife #rescue #rescued #loveanimals #savetheanimals #charity #aberdeenshire #scotland

I’ve become rather found of this panelling after having spent tens of hours hand sanding it. It’s actually very nice wood and when you sand it it gives off this beautifully perfumed scent. And the shadow is very pretty too.

Another 5k buggy run under my belt today with the Mums on the Run Inverurie group. I’d had a really bad night with Elsie, she decided it was time to get up at 3am 😣 it would have been really easy to sack off any exercise that day but because id already agreed to go, I dropped Roo at the heliport, donned my Nike’s and headed into the rain with the ladies. So so pleased i did. My best run yet with the buggy, feeling stronger every day. Well deserved rest day tomorrow!
And then onto the walls... . Well, we decided to paint just to where the white boarder had originally been above the shelf and follow that line around the whole shop. Preservation of the old, respect of the past ❤️ . #startup #shop #cafe #deli #takeaway #newbeginning #newbusiness . #old #cornershop #villageshop #farmshop #generalstore #generalmerchants #shoptransformation #transformation #interiorproject #interiors #diy #community #preservation #salvage #project . #parkestate #drumoak #royaldeeside #aberdeenshire #scotland . #park #parkshop #allthegoodstuff
There are only a few things which keep me out of the pub on a Friday Night (or any other night for that matter 😂). However, a Loch of Skene Summer Sunset is certainly one of those things..........

Meanwhile at ceiling height... First coat of Advanced Primer going on! Whatever has been used on the panelling comes through two layers of advanced primer which means everything needs three coats before any colour can go on. Oh my back, my neck... . And did I tell you if the temperature drops the consistency of the paint turns into glue - and no, there’s no heating at Park as yet LOL (painting went of for about three months in March April May) . #startup #shop #cafe #deli #takeaway #newbeginning #newbusiness . #old #cornershop #farmshop #generalstore #generalmerchants #shoptransformation #transformation #interiorproject #interiors #diy #painting #restoration #panelling #salvage #project #preservetheold . #estate #royaldeeside #scotland #aberdeenshire . #park #parkshop #allthegoodstuff

Oh hay there... fancy filling my shed up before it gets cold this year? You’ve all been fabulous so far and we’re over £600. Realistically, the good folks who look after me and my friends need to add another 0 to that figure due to the crazy price of hay ☹️ We don’t know if that’s achievable, but we gotta try.

First layer of undercoat on! I knew it would be a pretty door 🙌🏼 . Thank you @ecojoineryaberdeen for all the hard work with filling holes and taking the millions of layers of paint of gently.

The Gordon Bedroom. This is a room which has changed often over the centuries, though always has been a bedroom. It’s in a part of the house built in 1596. During the later Gordon’s tenure in the late 19th century the walls were covered in great swathes of Gordon tartan. One visitor at the time, a Mrs Ross described the scene as ‘hideous’. Lord Leith concurred and had the tartan removed. During the Leith’s time at the castle this bedroom served part of a guest suite with its own private bathroom and dressing room. The four poster bed is an heirloom of the American, Lady Leith’s, family. The bed was made in Kentucky, the home state of her grandfather. The plasterwork ceiling dates back to the time of William Gordon the younger, son of General William Gordon. Inheriting the Castle in 1816, young William carried out many improvements to the house and grounds. Politically he inherited the sympathies shared by his aristocratic, paternal grandparents (his mother had been a scullery maid originally from Methlick), he was a Jacobite. Being Catholic it was natural that he would side with the Jacobite cause to restore the Catholic Stuart Royal House to the throne. Throughout the castle he peppered clandestine Jacobite symbols, and the plaster ceiling is somewhere we find these. The ceiling is decorated into an oval of oak leaves and acorns, two symbols of the Jacobite cause of Stuart Restoration. The oak leaf symbol pertains to an event when Charles II hid in an oak in the grounds of Boscobel House during the English Civil War. Subsequently in 1660 he wore oak leaves as he returned from exile in France to assume the throne. Acorns were symbolic of the regrowth of this dynasty. There, that’s something we all know now! ;)
As the run down to our event draws nearer we will be showcasing all the wonderful gins that are attending our event. The first of our gins that we are showcasing is @avvascottishgin which Is made in the beautiful Speyside. #mythirstimpressions #avvagin #gin #gintonic #scottishgin #speyside #ginstagram #ginoclock #gintasting #daily #beautiful #aberdeen #aberdeenshire

Upstairs bathroom (to be) wall coming down to allow for the entire house to be given some heat. Yep we bought a house with no central heating so that'll be going in over the next week or so. All the pipe fittings and hot water tank arrived today, all to be run off of our kitchen Aga. Just waiting on the cold water tanks and most importantly pipes and radiators! . . . broadmuirfarmhouse #house #homerenovation #houserenovation #aberdeenshire #scotland #housegoals
