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...

little and nothing

I’ve only had a day or two over the past fortnight to work on the house so what has been done is little and nothing. The hall is almost finished, though. The finish is rather nice, the walls and skirting have been done with aplomb, they look great. I now look on...

I dream of shower construction

Friday was interesting, I’d been dreaming about fitting out the shower and I woke with a splendid new plan of attack. I wandered into the bathroom, surveyed the empty area that eventually would become a wonderful walk-in shower, congratulated my subconscious self on a plan well planned, wandered out of the bathroom...

How not to get work done

Late evenings in most households mean snuggling up on the sofa watching Idris Elba. I however arrive home to drag on a pair of painty overalls and attack holes with buckets of plaster and a trowel. This last week employed trowels, plaster and painty overalls to finish the work on the loft...

Beautiful stairwell featuring an Ikea PS 2014 light fitting

Beautiful stairwell featuring an Ikea PS 2014 light fitting – taking another week off from work. Friday 30th April I got home this evening not in the best sorts, I don’t know why I was just in a bad mood with everything. It didn’t help matters even that I’d just started a...
