Huh hum....nearly finished the kitchen....!
Well as I was banned from the blummin camping forum I had to find something else to occupy me this weekend (did debate running off in Tillie for an overnighter but was very responsible see)
So it's not finished yet (ceiling needs painting, kick board needs doing at bottom of cupboards and a couple other little bits) BUT it is nearly done!!! Yes you of little faith out there, I can now get through the obstacle course
So a few pics of the work in progress....
It became a bit of a maze the last few months, and everything got balanced in the middle.
The fish weren't happy in the pond as I lost the fish food about 2 years ago. This has now miraculously turned up and I am weaning them back onto pellets rather than pond scum
This was the corridor in, Homer hated it as he couldnt get round the bendy corner without a run up
After a lot of umming and ahhing I decided on the pale green
Half a wall later and I hated it. So dived in with 'Dulux Vile pink'
This did raise second and third and fourth thoughts as well, but i ploughed on (really not a 'pink' person)
Half a tin of paint later (that mix ur colour dulux stuff is bloody good - only needed one coat, it's really thick)
Here's Homer modelling Dulux Adobe Pink 2 (I think he would have preferred the duck egg blue)
Less chaotic and paint nearly done with my trusty assistants help (he loved it, we found 3 toys he had lost)
Today was drilling day. Would just like to apologise to the neighbours having put up the curtain pole, microwave brackets, utensil holders, spice rack, clock etc etc Noise bloody annoyed me, never mind them
And so we are nearly done.... (MUST MUST do the last bits and not leave them :( )
Where's the dog food going mummmmm?!
My lubberly dresser cleverly hiding all my shite in the cupboards
I can sit on the stools and stare at Tillie through the window now
Mummmmm whats in that nice new box??
Will look prettier once I put the junk away outside (actually the sun was out all weekend so feeling motivated to do the garden now)
Barleeeeyyyy, check out the new box!!
So there u have it almost!!!
And Homers dog biscuits? The little shite has worked out how to lift the lid and help himself. I now need half a dozen bricks on the lid to keep his snout out :(
Camping Under The Stars 12 months ago, Tommy approached me and asked if I would like to review one of his bell tents. No problem.. ...
*******Camping and canvas are now in liquidation, but I will leave the review here, as second hand tents still circulate, and I was mor...
