The Cold, Dirty, Dusty Path

The bathroom redo is underway. 

We had a slight (half day) set back yesterday which means I have to be nice to people on Saturday as well as the rest of the week, but I haven't heard any sucking through teeth or learned of any nasty surprises, which is a very good thing. 

On the plus side, the new boiler went in on Monday so when I can have heating it is very pleasantly toasty indeed. The rest of the room is at this point.


I can't actually believe there was no mould or other grot behind the leaky tiles.


It looks so tiny!


Thankfully we still have the essentials! But when they said the internal wall was probably just cardboard, they were not joking!


I was very concerned about how the buns would manage, and they were a little unsettled on Monday, but they relaxed quite quickly and I think they're used to having someone else here now. Plus we had to move their pen so they're getting some enjoyment from their new location. All things considered, it's going fairly well so far, famous last words! 

To boost morale, we're going towel shopping this evening, does the excitement never stop?

  1. It will look great when finished, you'll just have to grin and bear it until then.

    1. It's not been too bad. Last time we had a bathroom done it went on for weeks and I was totally fed up!

  2. How genuinely exciting! I'm envious, although our bathroom isn't too bad but I'd secretly quite like it turned into a wet room. Your bathroom looks about the same size as ours. Enjoy your towel shopping. I invested in new towels a couple of years ago and don't regret it. These small things in life are the important things and the secret to enjoying your life. Sounds trite, but it's true.

    1. I think Dan thought the towel shopping trip would be a nice wander around looking at things, but I was so task focused we were in and out!

      I'm having a slight layout wobble at the moment, but I just have to trust the expert and hope that I'm wrong.

  3. Glad it is going so well. I bought some basic towels from one of the supermarkets I think it was Sainsburys in the sale and then added some lace and ribbon, they look really effective.

  4. Not keen on this sort of job but when it's done it makes all the mess worthwhile. Will there be some orange in the colour scheme? :) xx

    1. I can exclusively reveal that there are no plans to have orange in the colour scheme. I am more surprised than anyone, but a while ago I said to Dan that he should choose the colours for the room, and the towels he chose are mainly blue (but not a "we live near the seaside so things have to look nautical" blue.).
