I know these photos aren't of much interest and no value at all photographically speaking but I wanted to record the process. So often when we do renovations we forget what it looked like before or during the work....

We are seeing some progress on the kitchen; the plastering has been done and the new granite work surfaces are in place. We still have no washing or laundry or cooking facilities and I am tiring of washing up in the bathroom seems disgusting somehow :(

I am pleased with my new run of cubboards and work surface. I'm itching to get all my stuff back in the kitchen and for it to feel like my home again!

The drive is now finished but I can't take photos as it's dark outside now. This was taken Wednesday just before the two loads of hardcore went down. The workmen used the bags of old tiles left by the kitchen men as additional filler!

Finally, for catblogging Friday here is Shea in mid-squirm on the sofa.

It's going to be a busy weekend. I am out the entire day on Saturday at a wedding with the husband of a friend who happens to be a very talented professional wedding photographer! He is very kindly allowing me to go along and "assist"him. Not that I'll be much assistance but it will be a wonderful opportunity to see a professional in action! If you would like to check out his work (or indeed if you are looking for a wedding photographer yourself!) here's the link
On Sunday we are off to a craft fair hoping to sell some photos. Hope everyone has a great Friday and weekend.

Sounds like a busy and fun weekend. It does get you out of your house for a while. Your counters look so nice . I bet you can't wait until its all done and you can actually wash and run water.

I took before and after photos when we had the kitchen renovated too - it still amazes me when I look at them now 3 years on!

I love your worktops and I think you'll be more than pleased when it's all finished! I also know what you mean about washing up in the bathroom - YUK!
