Utility Room and Tiling

A week off should fettle the utility room… you think I’d know better by now. I’d done my usual and considered what I’d already done was the hard stuff and the new stuff would just be a tickle of paint away. First job though was to finish off the stripping out and...

It’s been ages and ages

It’s been ages and ages since I last posted. I could tell you that I’ve just been too busy to post, I could say I had a spell of illness and was too sore to post, I could say that I’ve been too lazy to post… Well, I could say a lot...

Months of cleaning my teeth in the downstairs junked up utility room sink have come to a close. I now can re-join the human race and clean my teeth in my lovely new bathroom sink in the tool and insulation bombed-out bathroom. A million years ago, or so it seems, I took...

the kitchen sink

I took two weeks off over Christmas and apart from the general sprinkling of good will I managed to get some work done, even the kitchen sink was sorted. 23rd December 2016 First day off and a storm was brewing, so not a good day to work on the bay windows. Still...

brandy by the fire

This time last year I thought I’d be sipping brandy by the fire, throwing a log on it once in a while, tucking into a mince pie and relaxing over a good book. I didn’t expect to be still working on the house, more to the point I didn’t expect to be...

what have I been up to

What have I been up to, well lots… but nothing really to show for all my graft… I did take a week off on holiday and I did keep a bit of a log, I did intend to start on the shower and finish the hallway but despite my best efforts I...
