E is for......electrical stuff!







Well, it is the 16th today - the kitchen is being delivered in 10 days time. The plasterer is booked for the week commencing 29th August - by which time all the electrical work needs to be completed, the current units removed, the door fitted and the sink moved. If I say the list quickly it doesn't sound so bad - but yes, there is still stuff to do, much is totally out of my control. However - one thing I can do is, once the units are removed I CAN remove the tiles........ (hmmmm !)
Jon has been really busy, but this afternoon we have been out looking for lights - and we have bought some, ready to be fitted. Jon, bless him, did explain about the transformers (I thought these were some sort of toy my nephews played with - robotic vans etc) and to be honest he may have well explained the operstions of robotic super power for all the good his explaining did. I don't know what it is about explanations - totally above my head, but with Jon being 5' 11" and me being 5' 1" this is to be expected, nay celebrated!
Having such fantastic blogging friends out there who have been through the kitchen experience, it is great to feel encouraged, nay inspired by such people, for instance Kath - you can read all about her fantastic transformation  Here .
So..........let the work continue and progress begin!
Watch this space!

  1. We will need electrical supply soon when our porch is done. It sounds like your project is coming along pretty well.

    About your question in my food blog, yes you can bake it, it's healthier. I tried it once and sprinkled cheese on top of it, it was yummy.

  5. WE have problems with our kitchen lights because of something to do with ... something or other. Husband has fixed it by sticking this thing on but it really needs to be slightly more discreet!

    Good luck: it will all be worth it!

  14. I can only quote your sidebar, Denise, - Keep Calm and put the Kettle On.

  15. Wow~ It's been quite a trip, hasn't it? Not much farther to go and you'll have it all finished and can sit down for a cuppa!

  16. Don't worry about not being able to understand electrical 'stuff' Denise - leave it to the men, it makes them feel good and let's face it, ask most of them to cook a souffle and they wold fall at the first fence - so that makes us equal.

  22. OMG removing tiles urg! please protect your eyes, as bits fly off everywhere. But I'm sure you're too sensible to need me to tell you that :-D

  23. I can so relate to what you are going through! I did a kitchen remodel 3 years ago:

    I had a great contractor and a great lighting designer who is my husband (he was not the contractor however).
    I love my new kitchen, as you will too!!

  24. I do not know how I would handle going through a kitchen remodel other than the enjoyment of eating out all the time. But then that gets old and nothing beats a good home cooked meal.

    Your patience through this process is amazing and I hope all the electrical work gets done before the kitchen delivery.

    God bless.

  25. We've been through the kitchen experience twice, and that was once too many! I envy you the pristine, perfect kitchen, but not the process!

  26. I've just installed 70 kitchens in Swindon.

    Well, not me personally but my employer!

    Seeing how it should be done is enough to put me off trying again.
