Hallway advertising

Gaz has been harping on at me for ages to put one on my lamp designs up and I was protesting because I had an awesome retro wooden fitting in its place. He conveniently batted it off the suspension with a piece of 4x2 and claimed it was an accident. I gave up and so here is our hallway looking rather fancy with polished floors, fresh white ceilings and one of my lamps.

Hot water cupboards return

Have had no cupboard doors on our hot water cupboard for, I dunno, a year? This was originally in an effort to get rid of the salmon coloured paint, but because of the effort involved (stripping back to bare wood to start again!) I kinda gave up for a while. Now we are in a crazy hurry to finish all the things we started and gave up on and this is one done! Boom white doors - look good!

Hob prob solved

Due to certain hubby hob purchasing and lack of measuring and considerable 'she'll be right' attitude... Our hob has never fit the bench cutout!

With a quick measure up and a drawing I whipped up, Gaz sent off a template to awesome steel cutty guy and problem solved!

See the stainless plate? That looks standard right? Whoop no more hole!!!

OoooOoH look what I just arrived home to...

Had 3 days of camping at belly and duncys and It was only slightly painful chasing a child round an un-childproof house the entire time. Super grateful they took us in though.. not many people are that silly! Stocked to be home and weeeeee pretty floors!!!

Oh so edgy

Garden borders in. Had mum and daughter time in the garden today cutting wood to size, digging out channel and filling in the new garden edge. Looks amazing compared with the old rotten pieces of untreated Rimu I had lying in vaguely the right places....
