    sorry just thought i should start my own diary. As some of you know i recently moved into this house on the 14th of oct, and its been one thing after another trying to decorate ect.
    Im doing this thread just so i can look back when everything is finnished as i know how stressfull the next few months are going to be a head of me, and laugh at it all and think what a silly cow i was for getting so worked and stressed up about :lol:

    Ok we have almost finnished the livingroom just need to get carpets down, Oh has started the hallway but hes stripping all the years of old paint off back to teh origonal wood and going to be painting it mahogany.

    will be posting alot of pictures on here aswell

    Come the 8th of january we will be having the kitchen and bathroom ripped out so alot of mess as they are knocking the pantry down in the kitchen to make more room for cupboards :D

    this is the livingroom colours :D we now have a second hand cream leather suite we got for free
    [​IMG] :shock: from SIL sister if that makes sence :lol:

    this is the stairs half ready to be painted, still alot to do though, the left hand side banaster is the colour it will look once its all done *that was a tester to see if it was worth all the sanding ect*

    [​IMG]

    lots of plaster work has to get done aswell *stupid sky people made this hole putting sky plus in :roll:

    [​IMG]

    My bombsite of a kitchen, will take better ones these ones OH had took. I cant wait to get rid of that awfull kitchen and get all my flooring done and my new cooker in yayyayyay

    [​IMG]

    kitchen units are fitted, bathroom is now fitted

    problems :twisted:

    the main water pipe came lose and started leaking water, not very much thank god, all it needed was a new washer fitted :lol:

    one of the kitchen units have been dropped and slightly bashed at the side so it will either get a new panel or a new cupboard :roll:

    the put the extractor fan in for the cooker but didnt put a plug on it :roll: the electrician went away home back to glasgow and his boss rang him at 4pm and told him to get his arse back out and get the cooker connected :lol:

    i did say that it wasnt a problem if the cooker got fittet tomoz but his boss insisted he got back out now :oops:

    so its now 5.22pm and i now have 2 electricians in trying to connect the cooker good job they are nice though :lol:

    will take some more pics when i have cleaned the remaining dust up :D
