Totally over it already, it's certainly a big job.
But the week gone we have achieved little but a lot, if that makes sense, it doesn't look like loads, but each job has taken it's time!!!
I went to sewing and with the help of the quilting ladies managed to get my 3 layers pinned and ready for quilting....its such a good feeling.
Can recommend it, drew me in totally in that hour Left Neglected by Lisa Genova at it was reduced by 35%
....just look at the mess, so needless the 8am heading out the door early ended up midday, did the tip, and Bunnings, and the veg...no spotlight trip, too exhausted and not enough hours in the day. Home to tidy and clean up some more dust.
Before Mum and Dad arrived with tools to help out. Dad got in and with Bianca's help chopped down a tree fern that is was in the way of the new deck. Hubby home and he set out the next day's chores for the Grandpa and Granddaughter work duo. And the shopping list for Bunnings for Mum and I.
Another day of Training for Hubby. And the Granddaughter/Pa Duo are up and at it, drilling and nailing in the last of the floorboards. Lining the walls. They work well together and it is a pleasure to watch.
Bunnings for Mum and I, oh and a coffee and spotlight treat too. Bunnings is just another story all together, why is it that some of the sales assistants are wonderful but others just couldn't be bothered, managed to run into both on this trip, the good did out way the bad, but boy was he bad!!!
Dinner at the club tonight...got to work our way around this no kitchen thing somehow.
Surprise visit from My sister, which was lovely, moved some things around making more empty space downstairs....more work was done on the lining of the walls. And another trip to the hardware store.!!!
Mum and Dad headed home, leaving us to it, I spent the day painting the timber I purchased on Thursday for the fret work frame over the doorway. Hubby continued with the last of the fiddly bits, one last floorboard, and the last of the lining of the walls.
Dropping and picking up of children, another trip to the hardware store, connecting and installation of the new down lights, and the replacement extractor fan. I fought with my timber project but I won...and with Hubby's and Mr D's help it was installed.......oh so pretty!! Just more painting to be done!
Then it was pickup from work for the teens and we headed off to my sisters for the 14th Birthday dinner for my Niece, she loved her fabric basket filled with Nail treats....one happy niece with new nails painted for school. We enjoyed a lovely homemade hamburger, her dinner choice, with some wonderful chocolate cake with vanilla icing and strawberries....well this picture shows a little of the laughter (yes laughing so hard the photo is blurry) of the two eldest grandchildren performing food fights in front of their grandparents the laughter was endless...yes I have a special family and the laughter was good medicine for us all!!
the trip home in the rain, left me playing with the camera and I managed to snap these funky lights.
The new ceiling went in, and more washing, ironing and dusting, we now have working lights!! I won't mentioned the stuffed up sheets of gyprock from the tiredness we are dealing with that created another trip to Bunnings for more gyprock, in the rain, the ruined sheet that didn't even make it in the house due to it being sodden....but I did say I wouldn't mention it!!!! STRESSED MUCH
That's today, so today, Hubby hopes to achieve the cornice up, and the gyprock joins, we are behind schedule as the flooring company comes tomorrow to sand and apply the polyurethane, to the kitchen....and we had hoped to have painted everything but it's just not going to happen. But we will have 3 days off from the kitchen, so we are hoping that the rain will stay away, so we can work on the deck area...yes I have more washing, and ironing and cleaning to do today too. So RAIN please go away!!! I need to get it all dry and not in the drier would be nice!!!
I also have sewing homework to complete for my monthly sewing group that is this coming weekend.
Hope your week was less stressed than mine!!!
