This minted yoghurt dressing can be used for any green leaf salad, or as a topping for roasted beetroot.
I have this dream of making a serious change to our home. When Dave and I converted the plans to turn our garage into a cottage we did so with us in mind. We needed a fair amount of space as we were going to live there. The downstairs became our lounge, dining room, kitchen and bathroom. And upstairs was devoted to our bedroom, with a small, open plan study. Years ago we converted the downstairs back into garages, leaving the kitchen and bathroom as is. And when Dave and I moved out of our bedroom we could see how big the empty space actually was. It is my dream to turn this into a flatlet. And I have already designed the space as I envision it to be. It means removing the roof and floor and breaking down one wall which is a lot of work.

From there we will need to install a new door and move the staircase as well as throw a slab for the floor. This will also work to make the space perfectly fireproof, to use as a dwelling on top of a garage. A large window will be placed where the wall was to give a stunning view of the mountains. The new space will incorporate a bedroom, kitchen, living room and bathroom. At 48 square metres it is a generous studio apartment that is larger than many places we have stayed in overseas. And once this project is completed I would like to be able to turn it into fully furnished self-catering accommodation. I am hoping that this won’t take too long to materialise as it really seems the best route for us to take. Would you consider such major renovations?
