Tom has been super busy preparing the Kitchen and dining room ready for concreting on Monday. All dug out and filled with hardcore, sand and then finally a membrane.
On another note yesterday we ordered our kitchen ☺️ #kitchen#diningroom#progress
It’s Day 29 since I picked up the keys for this #rentalproperty and I have done nothing in it since last Sunday after heading back to work. The day job definitely took over and renovations didn’t get a look in! 🙈 Didn’t win the lotttery tonight either so still need to work - it’s that or find a rich husband 😂 #planb
Back on it today though - I’m still tackling the lining paper in the main bedroom however all the skirting is sanded and painted in there now the furniture is moved. I will finish this papering tomorrow!
It’s been a busy day today - I did my first family photoshoot at Spofforth castle with two gorgeous little girls from Wetherby. Scary being back at work but lovely to be out and child free (thanks to my husband having all 3🤗), can’t wait to start editing them. I am now enjoying a glass of wine, hope you are too? 😘
Still can't find the right industrial style shelving to go in the space between cupboards. I need to hurry up though as can't press on with the splashback tiling! Now I'm thinking dark green metro tiles instead of concrete effect! 🙈
Currently feeling deflated and totally defeated by life. Sat in loft room sobbing having hacked at floor boards to try and locate the leak from the ceiling 😢 Rushed home from work after what looks like a pipe burst in the ceiling in to the kids room..and this is after our whole bathroom on another floor has been out of use all week because it flooded the kitchen and we had water pissing through the lights 😣 I’m allllll about the love for Victorian period houses but right now I’d take a new build with less problems in a heartbeat. #Sigh#fml#life#majorsigh#givemeabreak#periodproperty#restorationproblems#diysos#defeated#help#burstpipe#victorianhouse#cantdeal
I am having a morning of cleaning today while Matilda is off school and having a duvet morning watching Trolls and Rafferty sleeps.
Fabric orders will be going out later today and we are away for two weeks now for half term. X
