Our long-term plan is to modernise the kitchen and utility room. Initially, we’re getting rid of the ‘swirly-plastered’ ceiling and dumping the crappy fluorescent tubes in favour of some modern down-lighters in both the main kitchen area and the utility room.
Phase I (Thursday) – Mick, the electrician came round to create the holes and lay the wiring for where the new down-lighting will eventually go.
Phase II (Thursday) – Nathan and his team came round to re-board and plaster the ceilings and then put up the coving.
Phase III Thursday) – Mick returns to drill the holes for the down-lighters.
Phase IV (Friday) – I paint around the freshly drilled holes in preparation for Mick to return on Saturday to install the lighting.
Phase V (Saturday) – Mick installs the lighting
Phase VI – This phase is down to us as the ceilings and coving will now need repainting. More on that, when we get around to it! The hardest, and most boring part, was me having to remove the old stick-on border prior to any of this – but now I’m thinking, did I need to anyway? – the plaster-board and the new coving completely covers the area of the stick-on border! – Doh!!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
