No Sewing Again tday...


I have had another busy day sorting extension out so no sewing.....

First thing this morning Michael and I cleaned the mess off the french doors and window in the extension. Then my ex hubby Alan, Michael and I fetched my table from my mums house. When we returned we put it back together and then put my new blinds up at french doors and window.

We then had lunch which my hubby cooked and I rested with backache whilst the men washed all the pots. Then when Dave had gone to work Alan helped me to scrub all the cupboards etc down in the kitchen.

So I am totally shattered so am gonna chill with a cuppa and watch some TV.

Catch you all soon.

What a Very Long Tiring Day !!!


Well what a busy tiring day today..... went to tip with a load of rubbish.... called into see my ex father-in-law. After this I called at Homebase to get some PVA Bond, Paint for extension, rollers and spray paint for DH's music cupboard.

I then returned home and had a cuppa. Then my ex husband (bless him) started to help me paint the internal walls of my large extension now my wall have been plastered. First we had to PVA bond the walls and ceilingto stop the paint soaking straight into them. We put two coats of white silk emulsion on the walls and three coats of white silk emulsion on the ceiling. It is very bright i there now. It did take us most of the afternoon and early evening as the extension ( to eventually incorporate a dining room and larger kitchen) is 18 foot wide by about 14 foot. We also had quite a few breaks for cups of tea / coffee.

He also laid down and fitted some of my old lounge carpet onto the concrete floor. This is gonna stay down until we can get our new kitchen and we get the floor tiled. Unfortunately I have to wait until my mums house sells (its been up nearly 2 years already) to get my new kitchen. Can anyone recommend where to get a kitchen from ?? Also then we will decorate stairs, landing and lounge. My lounge alone is 24 feet long. I can't wait to get a new three piece suite incorporating a new electric reclining sewing chair for me.

We then sat and had a chinese whilst watching X Factor ..... and we were completely shattered so no sewing for me today as ache too much.

Well I am going to rest now so catch you all soon
