Swimming pool gets installed at last

Ok I lied about the swimming pool but we have got the new downstairs double glazing and the kitchen is underway.

I’ve been a bit lax with the blog of late, visitors, weddings, web sites and photography have all taken up my attention. Even this will be brief though hopefully better than nothing.

I managed to get Phil and Beccas’ wedding invites printed onto nice flecked paper and sent off to them for ‘distribution’. I have done a photo competition web site for a friend as well as for my own photo club. My friend’s one is for his local group of retirees who range from too frightened to submit to those with a multitude of suggestions as to how to improve the web site (read “this is how I would do it”). The usual for computer support really!

Been busy with Kitchen version 2.1 – done one worktop see below and busy oiling up the remaining 2. I’ve also painted the tiles – as an alternative to retiling or splashbacks it looks better than I’d thought. Revisiting the lighting, adding an extra wall cupboard as well as integrating an oven and new hob all underway and when its sufficiently photogenic (chaos-wise or finished) it will be shown here.


I had a plan for routing the worktop joining slots this weekend but found I had the wrong size bits for my router so I just jig sawed the hole for the new sink. Another trip to Limoges next week to collect some more cupboards, lighting and stuff.

Finally this week also our replacement double glazing has happened. There is now a working dog flap but Siena has yet to figure it out (she ate the instruction booklet so we’re waiting for her to digest the instructions  ).
