Kitchen tiling now done

2124Finally got the tiles done. It only took the tiler about 4 hours. He did a great job. Now when I wash up the walls don't get wet! :)

Next job, painting... Stay tuned.

Cornice done

The kitchen is nearly done. The guys came to do the cornice today...

Before

After

It looks really good, but they did leave a big mess for Trudy to clean up. She wasn't very impressed :(

So the tiler called he can't make it till next week. So hopefully by next weekend it will be closer to being finished (feels like I have been saying that for months!)

Cornice coming

It has been a while since I gave a kitchen update. Fingers crossed by the end of tomorrow we will have cornice. I will post some pictures once done! Even better news is that we found a tiler and he is hopefully coming later this week. By the end of this week if all goes well we could have cornice and tiles!

Bottle Rocket

I found this great comic on how to make your own bottle rocket. So yesterday the boys and I had a go at building one. I was very surprised the first time it worked. I was holding it at an angle and it took off from the backyard, cleared he house and landed in the front yard! Some advice. Don't worry about trying to bend the coat hanger, just hold it instead.
