Not much gardening at the moment!

I am not managing to get much gardening done at the moment as we are having a new bathroom fitted. This takes up most of the house, most of the day, and most of my energy.....the fitter starts early and stays late!
Plus.......after he went home yesterday evening I spotted a bulge in our kitchen ceiling....he had knocked a nail into the radiator feed pipe and the leak had filled up the ceiling. So now, after he has finished the bathroom (possibly Friday) he will be coming back at the weekend to replace the kitchen ceiling. This involves removing the undercabinet lighting, emptying and taking down all the wall cupboards, removing the ceiling, replacing the plasterboard, plastering the ceiling, reinstating the wall cupboards, repairing the tiling, replacing the under cabinet lighting, refilling the cupboards, and clearing up. I think he'll be here most of next week! Sighhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you're not doing anything on Tues 11th November, you might find a view point on the IOW to watch the QE2 sail out of the solent for the very last time. We will be somewhere near Hythe. xx

If she goes past Seaview we'll be able to see her from our upstairs windows. Hope they light her up as it will be long after dark.....

Oh dear, what a disaster. We're hoping to have a new bathroom fitted next year. I'll be keeping an eye on the kitchen ceiling!

Isn't it always the way - something that seems so straight forward ends up more of a problem.

I had the saga when we had out little ensuite refitted - the job was going to take 10-14 days - and dragged out for weeks and weeks.

Hope all is done and dusted before Christmas

Oh no! Renovations are hellish. We renovated the main floor and it took 8 months.
