The builders have left the building!

An update on the state of our kitchen

What with Glastonbury going on, I haven’t been uploading the latest pictures of our kitchen, but I’ve just about got time to carry on now. This is how it looked when the builders had finished downstairs and were busy constructing walls upstairs. All the walls and staircase are now completely gone!

Then they brilliantly went to Wells Reclamation and collected our new sink; brought it back, managed to get it inside and then installed it for us. How fantastic is that? I don’t know if you can tell from the

photo, but that sink is flipping heavy!! Chris and I couldn’t lift one corner! It is one great big hunk of slate! And I love it! We were going to go for the normal sink unit with a black granite butler sink; but then we saw this and had to have it. It proved quite a problem for the plumber though, as he had to order the plug as standard ones didn’t fit, and then he spent about an hour filing the hole as it wasn’t drilled entirely straight. We had to seal it with expensive sealer that wouldn’t change the colour. It’s all worth it though. And after 3 weeks of not having a kitchen sink at all; it’s fantastic to have a fully functional one, and such a cool looking one as well.

Slissie review
A chance to curb your cravings? A review of the Slissie
June 5, 2017
This is a new product, so I’ll begin by telling you what on earth a Slissie is! To be honest, it’s a bit difficult to explain, but it’s a weight-loss device that looks a little bit like a vape, and you suck on it like it is a vape, however there’s no actual vapour! Instead, it releases a burst of flavour into your mouth, and the idea is that it will trick your brain into thinking you’ve eaten something sweet, and therefore your cravings will be satisfied without actually having the calories of eating anything…..
making a new patio area
Making a social outdoor dining area
September 16, 2018
We have been dragging our heels for ages over buying a new set of outdoor furniture. Our old wooden table and chairs are well and truly rotting away. We have also had it in our minds to build a verandah at the back of the house, leaning against the kitchen wall. However, each spring has come along and we’ve ended up spending any spare money we’ve had on a holiday instead. So it hasn’t happened, but the idea was still there, and it made a choice on the garden furniture difficult to make…..
Painting my gong copper
October 27, 2016
You probably won’t find another blog post with the same title as this one! But that’s literally what this post is about. I have childhood memories of a place called Foxlease in the New Forest where we’d sometimes have a little holiday. It was something to do with the fact that my Mum was a Guide leader. Anyway, it was a big old stately home and they had a huge dinner gong to tell everyone staying there that dinner was ready. Every evening they would take in turns letting the kids bang the gong. It never was my turn….
living with hypothyroid disease
Living with hypothyroidism – blame, balance, and being kind to yourself
May 24, 2018
This week is Thyroid awareness week and the 25th of May is World Thyroid Day. It feels like every day of the week and every week of the year is National or International awareness day for something or other. Well, this is mine. I hope we don’t get too weary of these sorts of days and weeks that we become indifferent about them. Anyway, I wrote more about my Hypothyroid disease story on a post a few years ago if you’d like a read of that first; and please scroll down to watch the video I made about it as well…
