QUICKER THAN WE THINK


Today the joiner came to do final measurements for our new kitchen. He tells me the joinery will be ready in 2 weeks. 2 WEEKS! That's quicker than we thought. Serious emptying out of cupboards today. Unscrewing things off the walls. Putting away the art work.

2 kids home sick but lots of progress made on clearing out the kitchen (in between running to Elliot to help him when he vomits. I must say he is a very tidy sick person. All the tissues end up in the bin and he even washed out his vomit bowl when I was on the phone - unlike big sister who could learn a few lessons about cleanliness being next to godliness!).

No gym for me today but all that lifting and carrying surely passes as a workout?

Off to the doctor (again) this afternoon - gotta get those kids better by Friday (and Taupo).

Too exciting!! Two WEEKS! I will definitely be seeing the new kitchen when I'm there in August :)

That's right, Karen, but I can't guarantee it will be actually finished.... glass splashback, painting, cavity slider,flooring (don't even know what's going on the floors) still to be sorted

Penny said...

Wow! Look at all that stuff! I swear things must multiply when they are in cupboards behind closed doors! LOL!

Hope those kids feel better soon & you don't catch anything :(

Yay for you...new kitchen SOON. I really hope Elliot is better soon and you can enjoy your weekend away in Taupo.
Remember Toy Story. Maybe your kitchen stuff might have a big party in your lounge while you're gone.
