Y....Yes it is all go!


The kitchen is currently a site - a real sight a building site very soon. Today we had the logs delivered and they take up the best part of the garage. The motorbike is now in the shed with the wooden kitchen units and fireplaces (where else?) The Rayburn is coming next Wednesday and it too will go into the garage until Jon organises some pals to come round with various muscles, trolleys and devices and they bring it into the kitchen, onto it's plinth. We will then wait for it to be commissioned ie plumbed into the central heating system and then the kitchen re-fit will happen. Not sure how and in what order, but the plastering and electrics will have to be done first.

The weather is set to change so it just might be a good time to concentrate on a couple of garden projects - not much else I can do in the house - but the garden ideas I want to implement should be fun - Watch this space!

  1. And yes I bet one day I will hear you yelling, "Yea! It's finally finished!" all the way over here across the pond.
    Thanks for covering for me today. Holidays do confuse me as what day of the week it is.

  4. Fun indeed, once the rain has stopped - the forecast is terrible tonight. Good luck with the Rayburn project - it sounds terrifying but these men know what they are doing. Make you self a cup of coffee (or something stronger) and go and sit in the shed if it is raining - come in when it is all done.

  15. I'm not particularly fond of gardening but it ranks lots higher than kitchening. :) I like that Raeburn will be settled upon a plinth!

  16. I think that a bunch of men battling with a Rayburn would make me want to retreat to the garden, muscles or no muscles ;)
    Hope it all goes smoothly for you! Mo

  23. Oh Denise! I do hate major reconstructions in my living space! When we had the kitchen done I took off for a couple of days. I really like all my 'stuff' in their proper places. Change is not my thing.
