Last weekend was a very strenuous one here in the Nesbitt household. The plinth which had been put down for the Aga had to be removed and it was quite a beast to break up - but armed with his sledge hammer and crow-bar, Jon did the deed! We then had to take the rubble to the tip and lay the new plinth ready for the Rayburn, due around the 2nd week of July. The flu is set in a different position from the Aga, this is why a new plinth had to go down - so the flu would go into the chimney in the correct position. It all got rather technical so I left it to Jon! lol! Once the Rayburn arrives the rest of the kitchen re-fitting can go ahead.
It seems only a matter of minutes ago that I first mentioned my early retirement plans - and now it is 3 days away! Had confirmation from Teacher's Pensions on Saturday so am well excited. We are going out for dinner to our favourite restaurant on Wednesday, a party on Saturday for family and friends and we are talking about going to France in September..........until then however - the DIY continues!!!!
