Well it is the last day of my recreation leave today and I don't feel that I have achieved enough.
True I have the door varnishing almost conquered [the outside has been all sanded back with fine grade sandpaper and therefore only requires another coat or two to finish. The Inside is to be sanded today]. I am cranky that I still haven't been able to do the overlapped bits - due to the installer playing "Oh! Sorry! How about tomorrow?" with me for most of the week. He has now said "Saturday PM! Definitely!" - which is all well and good that I might finally get the doors off the sliding rails to finish painting - but gives me no idea of when I can get them rehung [hopefully I can learn the trick to getting them on & off and can just get some strong-armed help Sunday night to rehang].
Oh and yes - I have organised the new living room floor installation. Contract signed for wooden floor boards to cover the floor area - and installation for sometime in October.
Still dithering over floor tiles for the hall, kitchen & balcony but I'm getting closer to a choice on that. I need to purchase those in bulk and store them for now as I will be (eventually) learning how to tile from my Dad (with the balcony as the "learning zone"). The Hall is also an easy area to do.
The Kitchen... sigh... that's a whole 'nother drama there that I will close my eyes to, cover my ears with my hands and loudly sing "La La La" till it magically goes away. [but if any of my blogging friends know anything about re-planning kitchen space so that there is room for a table? - please contact me!]
Now if only I had another week of leave - I might actually find time to do that whole "relaxing" thing (or not... Pax's in a natural state of rest tend to devour books, donuts and annoy the cat by hogging the couch)
In other news - I think I will extend the drawing of the woolen hat to early next week. So you have another few days to enter (or if you are on the Navy vs. Marine all-in-brawling teams - you have time to add a few more amusing exchanges)
Now excuse me as I go to once more apply varnish - wait for it to dry - sand it back - and then do a final coat.
My Life - So Darn Exciting!
