Days 11 & 12

No photos at the mo, but we're actually beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel! On Tuesday, day 11, the painter came and did the kitchen and bathroom paintwork. The woodwork is white, but the walls are magnolia! Yack! Looks deadly boring in the kitchen as it's almost the exact same colour as the tiling. Planning to re-paint that in a nice lemon shade and as for the bathroom, well I don't think the wall colour goes with the tiling at all, so a nice green shade for there to match instead, methinks! I got some cleaning up done in the bedroom so that it's clean enough to decorate and almost clean enough to sleep in.

Day 12 and a nice young sparky, (but not the one I'm married to...), came and finished off the electrics in the kitchen and bathroom. Whilst he was working, I got the majority of the dust out of the study, well, the shelves anyway. They won't be done thoroughly until everything's taken off for a new carpet being put in.

After that, I cleaned out the kitchen, bathroom and hall, (the cooker is now back in the kitchen, so the hall is clearer), and began to get the boxes and bags that the kitchen stuff was packed in. Washed everything and began to put it away. That also got some stuff cleared off the living room floor! Later on, Martin put a first coat of paint on the study ceiling. First decorating (by us) is under way, yeah!

Lili: We're not living here at the moment, so no stiching is being done here. In fact, not much is being done at my mum's either, but I am working slowly on a bookmark and will post a photo soon.

One day soon this process will be finished and the pain of it all will begin to disappear. :D
