Sealing the floor

Rustic Kitchen renovation

After reading all about the different types of sealant on the internet and the best advice for terracotta tiles, I decided to go for the only  kind they sell in the local Focus. This is Q EP Tile Sealer.

I had to seal the floor before we went on holiday due to the influx in the house of young children and yappy dogs with continence problems while we were away. I wish I had done it differently though. I rubbed it on with many cloths that I cut from old tracksuit trousers, which did have the benefit of cleaning them at the same time as I was rubbing. To be honest, this was probably the best way, but it took so long! I didn’t have time to do a second coat before we left, which is a shame. The cloth didn’t get into the joins, but a brush would have done, but by the time we got back, all the joins were full of animal hair and dirt that wouldn’t even come out with a hoover nozzle.

I’ve decided to save the second coat of sealant until I’ve done the grout.

So it hasn’t happened, but the idea was still there, and it made a choice on the garden furniture difficult to make…..

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….
