Three things.....big one, expensive one and a small one.
Big one -We have started on the journey of the big DIY adventure (?) here in the Nesbitt household. Yesterday we e-mailed the Planning Department informing them of our idea to change a window for french doors at the front of our house - where we get the sun on an evening. Looking up our drive the window you can see is the one in question, the front kitchen wondow. I had a chat with the voice on the end of the phone, I have her name and direct contact number. This will form part of the building work and this needs to be done first. The other building work involves knocking a doorway from the kitchen to the snug and replacing the kitchen patio door with a door and window - more worktop space under the window.
Expensive one - we have ordered our Aga - it is a brand spanking new one , electric with AIMS fitted. We spent a good time discussing, comparing, deliberating and in the end we went for this option - yes it is cream. We were pleased (as one can be when having ones eyeballs taken out) with the deal we made. Our Aga will return to the big Aga factory in Shropshire where it will be recycled but will come out more stronger and efficient - a bit like a Dr Who moment - I forget what the correct term is - but I know you will understand. To be perfectly honest (am I anything but?) Agas are expensive - we know that but when it came down to it £1,500 was the difference - lots of factors came into the equation but it all boils down to the fact that we got a good price for ours, we bought our new one local (Malton) it has a 5 year warranty! It will be delivered in the summer - I am sure I will let you know when!
