We have finally finished the spare room and it is awaiting the bed (this Sunday hopefully) before it is ready to use – all set for cuckoo in two weeks 🙂
The ground floor WC is also finished with a New York print on the wall and a new light fitting installed – all looks cool and only took 20 months from having the room done in the first place…. 🙁
Vicky decided that the lounge could do with a refresh so the paper has been selected (£50 a roll so it had better go on well…… no pressure then) and curtains picked out – just need to find a suitable colour to sit on the two walls on either end of the room – deep burgundy colour is the current favourite (not big walls due to the windows so the colour will not be overpowering). We took the first layer of the existing feature wall green paper off tonight although will be needing the services of a wallpaper remover to get the backing off – sadly the guy that put it up seems to have trapped lots of grit behind the paper so this is obviously still there and while the backing of that paper could make a good backing paper, the sheer volume of bumps etc will show through on the new paper quite badly we think 🙁
All this needs doing before Simon starts his new job in two weeks so again, no pressure.
Finally, we hope to get Bruce’s wheels in the next 48 hours so that needs fitting in as well….
Busy, busy busy…..
A simply fantastic few hours at the Ossett Martial Arts Academy. Tony and team delivered a sensational environment for the kids – they all loved it – see the photos below:
Received this in the post this morning
Great work Elliot
Simon tested his new 1800 lumens helmet mounted torch tonight on a 27km ride with Lee.
The sheer darkness puts a whole new view on the fun – it is simply amazing just how much light the little torch can put out. Simon has a bigger lamp on order (shipping from china) to install on the handlebars and then he should be all set.
Overall, it was good to get back out on a long run tonight – sleep should not be difficult to find (assuming Olly is OK that is)
Oh, and the spare room has been painted – just needs the wallpaper hanging and the curtains etc sorting – then just to get the bed in and we will have a spare room ready for guests once again 🙂
He woke up crying at just after 3am this morning – 39+ temperature – oh
Simon called the company up to see how things were progressing – the wheels have been repaired now but not yet lacquered – this takes three days to seal / cure properly so Monday or (more likely) Tuesday next week is the current ETA.
Bummer but then they want to be right so it will be worth the wait…
We nipped to B&Q this morning, bought some supplies for putting up wallpaper (and the wallpaper of course – sparkly of course) and when we got home it was time to crack on…
We finished the glossing work in the spare bedroom, popped a third coat of paint in the WC before beginning the wallpapering in the WC. It took a little longer than we envisaged but the results do look really good
