Almost there

Still haven't managed to get Kelseys Album back yet to take some photos but hopefully won't be too long now.


The good news is that my roof is almost finished along with the converted loft space which will be [when finished] MY DOMAIN  MWAHAHAHAHA !!!  [sorry, couldn't resist].

I have tried to upload some photos, but after 5 minutes of 'uploading' the photo has still yet to appear.  So I will try and add them again tomorrow.

But, a quick question........What do you have on the floor of your craft space?  Vinyl, wood, carpet, laminate? 

I think I need some outside help,  OH says carpet because it will keep any noise down because of the bedrooms underneath.  What does he think I am going to do up there, band practice?  But, Carpet is a pain in the bum to clean if stuff gets spilt and to get glitter etc., out of.

I think a vinyl of some description because it is easier to keep clean and reasonably comfortable to stand on for longish periods [I am a standing Crafter]

I don't like laminate floors from experience.

Any input would be most helpful.

Will try and upload the photos tomorrow

OH BOY !!!!

I put up this sign on the scaffolding as a bit of a laugh before everything went pear shaped. 
Tempting fate I think.

Well, it has been AGES since my last post.  I hadn't forgotten, I have just been sooooooo busy I haven't known whether I have been on my bum or my elbow!!

A quick round up.............................

Trying to sort out Kelseys 21st Birthday Album, Organising her Birthday Bash and have building works done.

We have desperately needed to have our house re-roofed for about the last 5 years. Basically it was slowly caving in on itself.  We thought, while we are having the roof done, we would have the loft boarded [properly] and roof windows put in. 

Finally, the scaffolding went up on Friday 3rd July, beautiful sunny day. The work was going to start on the Monday.  Saturday 4th July, another beautiful sunny day.  Sunday 5th July, another beautiful sunny day.  Sunday night, about 10pm, the heavens opened and it didn't really stop for three weeks.

So what with one thing and another things have been a tad hectic to say the least.

I spent Friday and Saturday hacking out about one inch of Bitumen out of our wonderful concrete gutters.  I WILL sort out the leak somehow.

I have been trying to get some things back on target, hence the very funky sunday outfit.

Well at least the roof is insulated and vapour barriered !!  Just got to put up the plasterboard now as well as re-lining the gutters [note to self - must phone the roofing suppliers tomorrow morning]  Don't I have a wonderful, exciting life?

Anyway,  I finished Kelseys album.  I just need to 'borrow' it back to take some photos.

That's it for now.  I am going to sit down and eat my much needed dinner and relax for the evening.  Tomorrow the fun begins again.
