Nearly there!

tunnel

There may be light at the end of the tunnel – but it was somebody with a torch showing me the parts we had overlooked! Yes, we are very very nearly ready to lay the carpet in the snug! The carpet is here, the carpet fitter, our good friend Spud is ready with his stanley knife and gripper rods……but there are a couple of finishing touches we need to address before I open the door and share with the world. The underlay has been delayed – apparently there was a problem with the courier finding us (common) and the doors need another coat of gloss. Being realistic – we’ll be in there by next week!

Back to the grindstone!

  1. The last bits always take longer than expected, I find. It will be lovely, though:-)

  11. New carpet... in my dreams. The carpets we have were paid for as part of a generous relocation package by my husbands then employers (20 years ago) they were of such good quality that they now refuse to die, they will just not wear out!! The patterns are dated and I long for the feel and smell of new carpets.
