Just watching a programme about homeless families and feeling so very, very lucky to have our home - and enough money to get these lovely improvements. I am certainly aware of the nightmare of finding affordable housing and my thoughts go out to a friend who is facing eviction in the new year. You know who you are, and I so hope things work out ok. xx.
The builders finished today. We are looking forward to Christmas in our new arrangements - though the budget might be a bit tight this year.
This is the new cooker and hob - and a work surface big enough to work on. We really wanted those pan drawers, they're Tardis like in their capacity.
We used to have a really crappy little fridge that kept things at about 10 degrees. It was balanced on top of an old freezer. Now we have this big fridge freezer, in which we can fit a weekly shop.
The washing machine used to be squashed in the corner of our living room, but now its more appropriately located in the kitchen - under another surface!
Sockets aplenty and a hanging rail. We need a few more hooks!
Meanwhile, where the old kitchen used to be is Pearlie's new en suite shower room.
We're looking forward to not getting up at the crack of dawn tomorrow! Now all there that remains is all the painting...
