I heard a wild rumour that my laundry floor tiling may be started imminently. There is nothing else left to do so I am left to assume this is not just scurrilous gossip. Happy Day! Mr.P spent this weekend painting the internal and external doors. Indy and Lola helped by coming in and out as much as possible because the doors were open , so Mr. P had to keep touching up the paint work. Lola decided to stick her schnozz in the paint tray at one point. Consequently we have one white nosed dog and another with a racing stripe down his side.
In other news our house looks like a crime scene.
Actually it's for the planned murder of our kitchen in about 12 weeks. (Aren't my floor tiles tres gorgeous. NOT.)
Mr. P and I had the kitchen designer in on Friday and we have 3D computer images of our new kitchen , but I just wasn't feeling it so we taped out some of the new planned cupboards to see if I can live with it. This is a major renovation people . We are taking out benches and all the cupboards as well as bringing down a wall. In case you want to stop following my blog at that point - we'll be having the new kitchen installed in around 12 weeks. I have to say I'm REALLY excited about the new kitchen and the designer was marvellous, to the point where we aren't going to bother getting any other quotes, because for a change I'm happy. Saturday when we got the plans, I shot through three changes I wanted to make via email and she was back to me with updated plans within an hour. Let's hope the rest of it goes smoothly. So I'm off out to look for appliances over the next couple of weeks...Yahoooooooo! Finally a dishwasher! And we will be spending a considerable amount of time prepping the kitchen and dining room for the new cabinetry.Our kitchen has not had a major remodel in 30 years and we are still sporting cedar walls and pelmets, the beautiful brown floor tiles, a copper rangehood and pineapple decal feature wall tiles, all of which need to come out before the new kitchen goes in. Yes..I'm always selective when I show you pictures that I take in my kitchen.
Our football team lost spectacularly yesterday and to add insult to injury we were there...Mr. P is still cranky about it and even though it’s only round 4 of 22 for season 2010, he is muttering about not bothering with season tickets for 2011.
For all of you that think I live a perfect life...When I woke up this mornng, my sewing room looked like this
...and I spent 45 minutes cleaning it before I could get in there
to make this
I finished spray painting the laundry hamper and the back board for the hooks for the laundry. And I'm pretty happy with how they both turned out.
I know I sound a bit like Martha with this post , but it IS unusual for me to actually get things done without a major incident or disaster. It might never happen again so I thought I'd better post about it to appease whatever diety was sitting on my shoulder helping me out today. Thanks diety!
I won't be here tomorrow because Spandau Ballet and Tears for Fears are in town so I'll be there bopping away and re-living my lost youth. And lest you think I've turned into some obsessed woman who only talks house renovations I'm planning a Tuesday post that will bridge the cultural divide. Stay tuned and have a great Sunday and Monday!
P.S. I managed to stay in my pyjamas all day. Bonus!
