Outside renovation (Can't exactly call it a garden)

So I haven't posted in a while mainly because my life has been hectic and there would be constant moaning from my ongoing bad luck
However this is something that will hopefully provide a much more positive impact on my life.

After much deliberation we decide that we would have it all paved although a late though is a pergola around the back little bit. Opinions welcome?

So here goes:

P.S please don't judge the state of the garden:

We have been wanting to do this for a long time and thanks to a loan from MIL we have finally taken the plunge (not sure about next years trip now though lol )

So before:

This one was before we moved the shed

So just to give you an idea of what we are dealing with ...Old Yorkshire stone slabs, cobbles , concrete and the obvious jungle. (Unfortunately none of it was salvageable).
I think it is the most horrific outside space I have ever seen.

Unfortunately there is no space in the budget to sort out the bodged walls so I will be relying on some paint to at least disguise them.

That's a great project and will need some hard work but will turn out beautifully I'm sure.
