Day 6-ish – Apologies, it got late …

Yes, I know that technically this is now Day 7 (or D-Day in terms of visitors arriving) but we got so tired and I had to paint a door and have dinner etc, etc ….

Chris has cleared most of the rubbish - see previous blogs! The man at the dump was very helpful, so thank you for making a horrible job so much easier.

Crikey - look at all the tools. On day 7 (yes I know we're on Day 7 now) he is going to tidy these all away - what a horrible job.

My job is to tidy and clean the bedroom ready for James and Mariery. I decided that they would need the bigger room so now I have to get on and sort it out.

Stage 2 - new seagrass boxes now storing all unsightly (but useful) stuff. Please note the wine rack that Chris put up at the end of a very trying and tiring day - looks good, n'est pas?

Chris put on a door for the house bathroom - hooray, all modesty preserved, thankfully.

A before and after photo - last night (proper Day 6) I decided to paint the un-aesthetic really dark doors. So now, more grey but it looks much better, I think.

To keep myself busy I moved the kitchen cabinets (what else did I have to do). I am hoping that James will be able to help Chris fit and cut the worktops when he is here - tee hee, he didn't think he was staying for free did he?

New layout ready for worktops to be fitted. I will also be able to paint the cupboard doors once this is done.

Now to tidy up the back room - dust, clean and wash the floor then we should be sorted. I bet I find a few more things to do!
