Oh it’s been so exciting – if very tiring the last few days…. We’ve been renovating our bathroom and getting all that updated. One of the things taht we had to do as part of that is relay some vinyl. We had a lot of fun looking at different types of coverings and in the end we chose a whte, timber look.
Seeing as they needed to come in and do this, we decided that rather than continuing to think about how much we disliked the existing black and white squares in the kitchen, not to mention the carpet in the dining room, it was about time we sorted those rooms out too. So we chose a natural timber vinyl for in there. I am SO pleased with it – they came in this morning and have laid both rooms by just after lunch.
As well as all this excitement, we decided to replace our not very safe oven and our leaky fridge (fridges don’t like being moved from one side of the planet to the other very much!). Because the vinyl was being laid today, I’d arranged delivery of the new appliance for tomorrow. The Kitchen looks so weird without those items in there!!
We had to take them out last night so that the vinyl layers could do the job properly. So, we are without a fridge and a stove for 2 nights. Today is Mr 3′s birthday. Guess who isn’t getting a homemade birthday cake for tea tonight! I feel pretty stink about that, BUT we are having his party on Sunday and I AM making little Thomas cupcakes for him then. In fact, I think they will be christening the new oven!
But what to do for tea tonight? It’s amazing when your stove is taken away from you, you suddenly realise how much you use it….even my jug is plugged on on the side and i had to find a new plug for that!
You know, we are doing a pretty simple update and change to our home. It looks like a warzone at the moment (and some days it might even sound like one as “design decisions” are being decided upon….). I’m not sure our marriage would survive a full on house renovation. But once this is done, there are a few more decorating jobs I think hubby needs to finish. Then there is the maintenence outside….. Poor Boy!
