It may not represent much to you....

But this vinyl down in the hall cupboard and our wardrobe represents lots to me:
The hall cupboard

  • It means the the floor cracks are finally fixed. 3 years after the first earthquake, so finally the end of waiting to get things done.
  • 4 hours hard slog. I am sitting here feeling quite trashed. I had to sand the floor first then measure and cut the tiles to fit, then glue them down. A lot of the tiling is in under fixed shelving and so this has been hands and knees and getting into tight corners.
  • Money saving - by doing it myself it means we save money
  • I will get some of my room back - I can now get some of the clothes and shoes that are all over the place back into the wardrobe.
  • A marked improvement in my DIY skills, a lot more accurate than other tasks I have undertaken
So onward and upward as I wait to be able to paint the bathroom. Maybe I will soon be able to get the carpet layer in to do the hall and our bedroom. Wow - we wont know ourselves.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I love that you took time out to comment on my blog.
