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.

Approaching forty – Is it time to take out my piercings?
April 13, 2018
It has been on my mind for a while that maybe it’s time to take out some of the piercings in my face, and as I’m turning forty in a couple of days, I thought now would be a good time to do so! Over the years two other piercings have fallen by the wayside – I took out my belly-button ring when I was pregnant with Jude as it was getting in the way, and (rightly so) I felt my days of showing off my tummy in a crop top were over. Then about four years ago the ball on the end of my tongue piercing came off, and as I didn’t know what size to replace it with, I just took it out. Now don’t get me wrong; I’m a firm believer in wearing whatever the f**k you want, regardless of age, but there are a couple of reasons that have led me to think that it’s time for a change….
Afternoon tea in Bath
Afternoon Tea with Mr Darcy at the Jane Austen Centre in Bath, Somerset
September 21, 2018
We asked what Jude would like to do for her Twentieth birthday (yes, you did hear me correctly: twentieth birthday) and she asked to go out for afternoon tea. I’ll be honest, when I agreed, I was thinking more like at a National Trust cafe, but Jude had in mind the full afternoon tea experience. Apart from on a cruise, I’ve never done this, (it’s the sort of thing I’ll do when I grow up) so was looking forward to experiencing the proper deal….
