Is this the only man on the planet who can get
a job 'COMPLETED" . I am being held to ransom
by men at the moment.
I thought I was going to finish the bathroom, laundry, concrete the courtyard
& the kitchen/family room lighting these holidays.
NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE !
(sorry for shouting)
That is the short story of this post today if you want the unedited version keep reading........
Is 6 weeks to long to wait for a quote on a lovely
marble offcut big enough to surround my bath with
a lovely feature panel also on the front. Well its not actually
a quote I told them 6 weeks ago I would like it (as they
offered any marble offcut in the yard at the same price as ceasar
stone offcuts. So I am hanging in there , normally I wouldnt
be this patient but as soon as I saw this piece of marble it had my
name all over it. This bathroom has bben striped down since last Nov
with the new bath sitting in a frame & the old taps on with a cooper pipe spout
just so the kids can have a bath. We do have the floor tiles down & I could do
the shower & vanity on the other side but the tile choice for that rests on wether the marble goes in.
I have waited this long should I hang in there ?
Twice now the electrician hasnt arrived when he said. I rushed out last week to
purchase the downlights for the family room (given up on finding my dream kitchen lights)
power points for the laundry & waited all day on Saturday for him to do a no show. We
cancelled our weekend away because that was the day he was free (hubby wasnt to excited as he
was looking forward to a break) and I havent been able to contact the electrician since. He was great
when the builder was here. Why do they say they are coming & then not let you know otherwise ?
I cannot finish the laundry splashback & shelving until the power points are in. I know I should
find another one but he has done all the new wiring in the ceiling for this job & I thought it would be easier.
Some light at the end of the tunnel is the concreter is coming on the 20th July for the courtyard.
My darling hubby , I know works hard (he would say to bankroll this reno) bless him , but I just need him to put seven knobs on in the new laundry & drill four holes in a kitchen cupboard to install our new slide out bin & its just not happening.
So if Tara Dennis on Better Homes & Gardens can get her drill out , its about time I learn !
Then I can also put up those new curtain rods I will be purchasing next week.
I dont think I am ready to cut & install marble or climb in the ceiling to wire up lighting.
Maybe if I do a shout out to the delicious (did I say that out loud) talented Nate Berkus , do you think he
might fly half way around the world to finish this renovation for us ?
I have lost my mojo
Breathe in , Breathe out......
