....I am hoping that tomorrow will see a tiler and a plumber turn up to start their parts of the job at hand...today is of course a holiday (!) which means all has come to a standstill; though to be honest not a lot was achieved LAST week, apart from Craig and I going out and buying everything we needed for the ensuite. People came and went to look at what THEIR part of the job entailed, but they then disappeared off to other (obviously more-important-than-mine) jobs!!!!
Yes, the Cavalry (in the shape of Craig) rode-well flew- in for all of three days, in which time we made decisions, loaded the car with tiles, paint and other assorted necessities, borrowed a van to go back and collect the shower screen, vanity unit and shower tray...in between which said Cavalry Officer tried to come up with a working plan the builders might actually be able to..well, work to!!!!
Whilst waiting for said people to come and go and whilst my poor husband manned the phone and met with contractors, I snuck in a bit of scrapping (just to keep my sanity you understand!)
Once left to my own devices again I went off for a bit of my favourite kind of retail therapy:
....then spent a couple of hours in the sunshine planting and pruning...so good for the soul!!
Saturday night saw a Mexican themed night in the village, so a few of us popped down to show our support...
Unfortunately the weather hadn't been great for the previous few days and the rain had only stopped that lunchtime ( and yes, we even needed jackets!), so it wasn't very well attended...the children enjoyed the donkey rides though!
As for mail....the highlight of the week was the delivery of this:
....now all I need is a Vanity Unit in an ensuite in a bedroom into which I can unpack it!!!!!!
Waving to SIAN and the Monday Wavers...hoping the sun is shining for you this Bank Holiday Monday, as it is here!
Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
