I've been a bit absent from blogworld lately and I'm really missing getting round everyone's blogs. Things are very chaotic here. when the kitchen guys came to take off the old tiles the plaster came off too. At the moment we have no sink, no water, no cooker and no washing machine, we are awaiting the granite worksurfaces before anything else can be done in the kitchen.

The JCB arrived Saturday morning - I didn't get photos of it in our front garden as i was at work and Phil refused to take any for me. So right now the house is sitting in a sea of mud as you can see in these photos. Hopefully it will be finished by the start of next week!

Tomorrow the block paving edging is supposed to be laid - fingers crossed! I still have a load of bulbs to plant in the front garden.

Oh my, I've been there before. No-nothing in the kitchen. I don't envy you. When its done you will be so happy though. So all I can say is hang in there.

I have been pretty scarce too :( Life has been busy. So sorry to hear you have your kitchen in full remodel mode. Hope you get it finished soon and can get back to normal!
