So, after relocating our kitchen temporarily into the dining room, we did make some good DIY progress last weekend. All wall cupboards and a couple of base units have been ripped out (which Tom thoroughly enjoyed smashing to pieces) and we started painting the door way white in the kitchen.

It’s been a LONG week; with work, adjusting the body clock and catching up on tidying the house – keeping the washing machine consistently busy.

So far today, there’s been a problem with the Apple Store so I haven’t been… Continue reading Carpet disaster
