I took an unplanned break from blogging this month. The irony is, when you have the most to write about, you also have the least amount of time to write about it!
The month kicked off with an intensive weekend plastering course, spanning over two full weekends. It was a fab experience and I will be writing up about this soon.
We then launched into a full on garage roof attack, where we replaced the garage roof finally. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be, but it was physically demanding, and this work spanned the following two weekends. I'm so glad it's done now though, and with Storm Katie riding over us at the minute, I can finally confirm the garage is watertight - yay!
The next project which is sucking all my arm strength is the living room. The wallpaper stripping has begun and it's a b***h! I have never encountered wallpaper that has proved so difficult to remove. It's two layer of wallpaper, and you just can't get a good run on it, it just comes off in pathetic little bits. To date it has taken probably two whole days of two people working and we are halfway through the room (and it's not a big room!). At least I know this is the very last of the wallpaper in this house so I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
I'm currently sat in the sofa on this very miserable Easter Monday morning, wrestling with the Wickes website trying to order some supplies (15% off everything!), but it seems like everyone else has realised what a super deal this is and the website just can't cope. Grrr!
I hope you have had a lovely easter weekend.
