Day one of the great Kitchen Rejuvination and lots of noise as the kitchen fitters ripped out the old kitchen units etc.
In so doing they found no less then three different layers of flooring, which explains why the back door ‘dragged’ and the floor level was a good 1.5 inches higher than parquet in the hallway. But underneath it all was a rather nice herringbone pattern quarry tile floor. True it needs some repair in one section but if we can get matching tiles it will look rather good!
Yes its still covered in guck – but no cleaning until after the plasterers have been.
Then there are the walls – which in places had three layers of tiles stick on top of each other. Note – the multiple floor coverings had trapped damp – hence a rather dark patch in the corner. Bleach to the ready!
Cats hate noise and our three reacted in typical fashion. Oberon and Betty Poop retreated to the back bedroom. Miss Dilly, of course, was on the case, running to the top of the stairs to peer down in the direction of all the racket and then running back to me to tell me there are noisy people inthe house and would I kindly tell them to shut up!
It is quiet now and instead of a kicten we have an empty space.
And our treat for tomorrow?
The Electrician cometh!!
