Flooring – Day 1

After much deliberation we eventually chose our flooring a tile effect laminate quick step. After weeks of looking at a variety of options we ordered the very first floor we saw.   We were hopeful it could be fitted before we went to St. Andrews on holiday but today was the first date they had.  

It has been frustrating not being able to organise everything in the house while we waited but I am glad we took the time to make the right choice. 

We haven’t been doing nothing while we waited but lots of little jobs that weren’t worthy of a blog post on their own.  

When we were in St. Andrews Mark found a date block in the hardware shop. I have been looking for one for a while, I remember Colin and I changing one our Auntie Nancy used to have.   

He also saw a great sign ‘you have the right to remain silent use it’ he didn’t buy it so he has got Emma to pick it up for him when she was there last week. 

We had some great walks along the Fife coast. We collected some stones and shells. I have plans to put the shells in a frame and I have cleaned a rock I carried 2 miles home and is the perfect grey for our new shower room. 

Last week I decided to paint the inside of the hall cupboard and old airing cupboard. What I thought would be a quick job took two afternoons but great they are all fresh.  The airing cupboard is all sorted and managed to recycle some storage we had in the space where the hot water tank used to be.   

I used gumtree to sell our old pans.  I put them on for £20 and got an email offering £10 which I was about to accept until Lynda suggested haggling. I am not normally good at this but managed to get £15.  Our old dyson finally gave up the ghost so I listed it as well for spares and got £10 today from a lovely lady who had the same model and her husband was going to use the parts to fix her one. 

Lastly here is a picture of the floor, I am really please with how it looks and was definitely the correct choice

They have still to finish the kitchen and hall tomorrow.  When the fitters moved the freezer they found a lot of water underneath. It looks like lots of droplets under the  insulation.  The concern is putting it back on the laminate. I am off to phone currys in the morning and hopefully the newspaper under the freeze will absorb all moisture so the floor can be fitted and we will put polythene down in the interim to protect the new floor.
