HAppy Anniversary

It's our anniversary today. We never married, we just never got round to it so we just celebrate every year on the date we met.

So today it's 38 years since we met. We usually go away for the weekend, but because of all the money we have spent recently we are going out to our favorite restaurant.

Good news

Well I got an email from the insurance company last night and after my complaint about the loss adjusters the insurance company decided in my favour.And are paying out for the damage the flood did to the kitchen floor.

So some good news for a change.

Currys also agreed to pay the second installation fee I had to pay when I exchanged my cooker.

Sky are coming out this morning and looking at the damage one of there engineers did to my bricks when they moved the cables.

And these loose wires they left hanging.

The Fire is being fitted next week so hopefully all will be finished soon.

Painting cupboards

The dining room is coming together now. Hopefully by the end of next week everything should be done.
The windows are being fitted at the front next week. The blinds are being finished and the cornice at the end of the kitchen is being fitted.

Geoff can put my shelves up then and I can get the boxes emptied that have been in the cellar.

I am really going to go through it all and take it to the car boot.

I have a kitchen

The kitchen fitters came back to finish the kitchen and guess  what the builder had told me to order the wrong part. No probs as ever I phoned Wickes and received fantastic customer service. The part is coming on the 22nd and the fitters are coming back on 24th all sorted its an end it that's decorative so doesn't stop me using my shiny new kitchen.

It wasn't a wasted journey for them as they had to sand and oil my worktops any way.

Here it is nearly finished just have to get some blinds fitted next week.

There's a couple of problems in the dining room so once they are done I can get the blinds for all of it.

 Natasha bought us a bottle of Champagne at the start of this and said open it when your sat in it and happy with it.

I can't wait to crack it open.

Eating at the table

We put our old table up as a temporary measure last night it was so nice to eat at the table again. I have so missed it. I really don't like eating on my knee.

It looks a little lost in that expanse

I have had o work this weekend. Geoff bless him has worked really hard painting the kitchen and new dining room.

He thinks it needs a second coat. It's so big which  makes it really hard word for him.

I will be home at 3pm so can lend him a hand then.

We had a landscaper come and have a look yesterday, another's coming today  and a friends brother who's a landscaper is coming  tomorrow. See how the qoutes differ.
