Things are still going really well with the dining room project. The painting is all done and I put a lovely border around the walls, and we have had the chairs re-upholstered, plus the wood has been treated, so everything looks great and is ready to go back in to the room.
Tomorrow I am having the wooden floor fitted, it should only take a few hours, we have a chap coming in is going to put down underlay and then fit a real oak laminate floor for us. That should be really good and look really classy.
My birthday party was a great success and everyone had a great time. More than 100 people turned up and we partied till after midnight. When he got back to the house with a few of the people who had kept their children here with the babysitters, they had a look at our kitchen and they were very impressed. Several people had never even heard of and over the range microwave, and just assumed that they would desktop things only, and it provoked several conversations about people getting over the range microwaves for themselves.
So that was really lovely and it was great that people thought that what we have done on such a tight budget with our kitchen and appliances worked so well.
So things are going really great now, the birthday party was lovely and I'm really proud about what we did with that and I had a lovely time and I'm going to remember it for the rest of my life, but the kitchen is looking great and people have been very impressed with what I did in terms of getting an all sorted. And now on top of that the dining room is also complete within the next two days.
I am beginning to wonder what I'm going to do after this, because once the house is sorted at the pace I'm going, am I going to want to just stop and do nothing, or am I going to need another outlet. I think I might need to get a hobby or some sort of fitness thing going so that I'm not bored.
