My blogging room ……. I mean Lo, the terrible Goddess’s office ….. is getting there. The window is installed …….

Blogging room - front

…… although it originally arrived with one pane of glass missing and they managed to crack one of the other panes during installation which was a bit of a pain. They popped back a couple of days ago to sort it out.

I put in the patio doors, so obviously that went well with no problems …….. in a way ……… least said soonest mended.

Blogging room - garden

I’ve plastered and painted and finished the electrics …… now I’ve got to put down the floor insulation and the limed oak flooring followed by the skirting boards and architraves, then build some cupboards around the gas meter and the electricity meter, put a new door in between here and the living room and then furnish it ……. simples.

Actually I can’t face it at the moment, I’m going to London for the day ……. bye …..

    After you’ve finished all those little jobs, can you photoshop that black line out of the ceiling?

    daddyp replied:

    It took me ages to paint that line on the ceiling!!!!

    If the Sistine Chapel had black lines on the ceiling, they’d look just like that…

    looks lovely! but the patio door? shouldn’t that be just a few inches to the right?

    fracas replied:

    You know… I hadn’t noticed it until you mentioned it, but now that I’ve examined the photo again, I can see how right you are; it does need to be just a few inches to the right.

    Good thing you came by today… imagine if he’d just left it the way it is!

    daddyp replied:

    OK OK, I’ll look for my BIG CLUB HAMMER and my COLD CHISEL …… and decide what ….. or who …… I’ll use them on later …….

    Good god, you actually intend to finish this project? Do you think that is wise?

    It is all looking very good.

    daddyp replied:

    If I don’t finish it …… soon ……. I’ll be needing the double protection shin pads …….

    What you were in London today?? So was I …. how did I miss you?? Mind you London was mentally busy today perhaps I missed your box in the throng.

    The ‘guest’ accommodation is looking fabulous. Just some art work on the walls (oh and flooring, radiator, very comfy couch, big flat screen TV, glitter ball etc etc ) and it will be perfect for when I come to stay 🙂

    daddyp replied:

    It was muggy in the Smoke wasn’t it? I didn’t breathe for about 6 hours …….. and with reference to your other comments …… LOOK!!! A BUTTERFLY!!!!! …..

    Just out of curiosity, how long did this project take you?

    My husband started a kitchen renovation in May. MAY. MAY. MAY. It’s not finished yet.
    I’m thinking he’s *slow* both physically and mentally.

    He’s chosen shag carpeting for the kitchen countertops and deer pelts for flooring.

    daddyp replied:

    Now, you’ve said May but haven’t said which year so it’s a tad difficult to say whether he’s swinging the lead. [Note to self – order some shag-pile – brilliant idea!]
