Day Fifty-Three

tantalising shower, nearly there....

Lots and lots of bathroom activity today resulting in tiling round the bath and a shower enclosure with shower in.  Not ready to use I’m sorry to report.  Never mind, another day or two won’t make any difference now.

Still some grout to go and probably another couple of rows of tiles above the bulkhead, we are thinking about it overnight.  I am so pleased to see such a difference in a day and the look is exactly what I hoped for.  We even have lights that work in there, things are coming on indeed.

The lights upstairs are working now and another exciting installation is going on upstairs too, I’ll show you what soon.

Day Fifty-Two

Some of the tiles are up and I am delighted with how they look.  We have a few little things to iron out with tiling under the window but I’m sure we’ll sort it out tomorrow.  Everything for the upstairs bathroom is here too which is great.

F is finally feeling a bit better after a trip to the docs this afternoon.  He has literally slept for two days but now he is ‘managing’ to play minecraft so I’m guessing calpol and antibiotics are doing the trick at last.

I’m looking  forward to seeing the bath upstairs in place and everything coming together.  Then there will be the almighty sorting of stuff and probably more trips to the dump.  Hey ho.

Day Forty-Eight

We are nearly done with the plastering now, just a bit of the ensuite and the bedroom cupboard to go. The  two front bedrooms are pretty much finished minus a cupboard door.  Many of the lights and plug points are in situ now too.  The plumbing has resumed progress and it feels like things are moving along nicely.  Looks like I can go and buy some white emulsion to get the first watery coat on.

Lovely day again here if you kept in the sunshine.  Had a good walk round the Botanics and visited the library too. Let’s keep fingers crossed it’s sunny over the weekend. x
