Kitchen chronicles – We have a floor!

You may recall we’ve been without a proper kitchen for just about the whole time we’ve had the house and at times it has really got us down.

The last few days, however, has seen Ant slaving away, getting it emptied, a radiator removed, the floor down and today we started papering the walls 🙂


The paste is still wet which is why it looks patchy!

It finally feels like we’re on the way to getting a proper kitchen and I have to say I’m beyond excited!
Argos are delivering our kitchen units on Tuesday and Ant will be fetching the worktops from B&Q ready for the kitchen to be installed (by him) at the weekend. After that his last job will be to buy and fit the tiles 🙂

I really cant wait to get unpacked properly and make it all pretty!

In another couple of weeks we should have a normal house, one where rooms aren’t used as storage for items from other rooms and where I’ll be able to hoover the carpets and mop the floors without having to shift boxes/books/white goods to be able to get to the floors!

I do have the sheds and greenhouse to sort out as we’ve been using them to store more boxes but the majority of that will be garden stuff that needs to stay in the sheds and a few more bits for the loft.
