Photo Challenge – November 9th

November 2nd – Checking out wallpaper at one of my favourite shops, B&M!


November 3rd – He said the tiling should be done soon 🙂


November 4th – Kaycee’s working on a badge for Brownies and had to make a sandwich for herself, Ella and Aiden


November 5th – Ant’s new toy! We were sent it to review and he loves it! Can you believe I chose to have the helicopter delivered rather than a new handbag? No, neither can I!


November 6th – Tiling all done, woodwork and walls painted 🙂 All that needs doing now is the new floor and the kick boards on the cupboards. They’re planned for tomorrow 🙂


November 7th – Well the floor isn’t being done until next Monday now so he said I can get all the stuff unpacked and put away. I was so relieved to be able to cook properly again!
November 8th – Comfort food on a dull day….pasta and sauce with Cumberland sausages, mushrooms, onions and peppers. All syn free with the cheese as my healthy extra (I’m following slimming world for anyone who doesn’t know about syns and healthy extras!)

    That helicopter looks cool but yes I think I would have really preferred the handbag! The kitchen is really coming on, I'm looking forward to seeing the end result

    Hated having my kitchen done, you don't realise quite how much you rely on it do you?
    Love that helicopter and cannot wait to see the review – my boys would love one!

      I did the review the other day but forgot to add the link to this post. I've added it now 🙂 I would definitely recommend the helicopter, Ant's crashed it a few times and it's very resilient! Ella wants one for herself now!

      The first thing I got excited about when we bought the new cooker was the thought of cooking Christmas dinner on it! 🙂 xx

    @ Rollercoaster Mum: The worst room to share with a builder for two weeks has to be the bathroom. I cannot imagine the desecration of my sanctuary (well, maybe for a couple of days – 3 at the most).

    i am on decorating mode too!, your kitchen looks fab honey x

      Thanks Jaime 🙂 Can't wait to see your new fireplace! xx

    I think I may have taken the handbag!! Hope you get your kitchen sorted soon – has to be the worst room to put up with being disrupted – I'm sure it'll all be worth it in the end though.

      It's been a nightmare but hopefully it'll all be done tomorrow 🙂 xx

    Love the look of the helicopter. A great new toy

    1. shelllouise 10th November 2013 at 11:13 am

Don't be shy, come and talk to me! :o)
