Friday night and after a short week back at work to ease me in after the holidays I am ready to SLEEP! Work may have been quiet this week but I feel like I am sleepy all the time, and the bags under my eyes are gross too! Must be my recent diet of 'all you can eat' including copious amounts of chocolate.
So this week saw lots of activity in the bungalow. The Kitchen was developed a little further with the island being fitted and the tiling has begun. My sister mentioned to me that she didn’t even realise the tiling was missing from the kitchen, I kind of feel the same, but maybe that’s because I would have been more than happy to have a non-tiled kitchen – totally impractical I know.
The staircase was being completed this week with the spindles and hand rail being fitted. We had chosen a stain for the wood and the guys made a start on it for us....we then saw a picture and began to wonder if we had chosen the wrong colour - total staircase drama! We will wait to see it in the flesh in a couple of weeks before we make any further decisions in this department!
Next up for us are blinds, beds and all that in between. We won't be heading back to the bungalow until the 14th January, by this time the place will be just a couple of weeks from completion (all being well) so interiors need to be at the front of my mind from here on in (as if I haven't thought about them enough already).
A MUST for me on the 14th is visiting the new Lillian Daph Store in Saltburn, I need to take a look at all of their artisan goodies! The store opened a few months ago and I have popped in a couple of times, always such a warm welcome and the place smells delightful which is always a bonus! And if not something for Burnsyde, maybe my own home!
Next up for the bungalow is a whole load of bathroom tiling and time to get the sun room in tip top shape!
Week 12 - bring it on!
