Bathroom Makeover

I’ve said it before but “nothing is ever easy” Bathroom Blues We’ve been wanting to re-do our bathroom for a while now. It hasn’t been done since we built the house in 2003. When it was fitted back then we had no money left after building the house so did so on a very tight...

DIY Dilemma’s

Nothing is ever easy is it? I was getting on well with the laminate flooring project that I’d undertaken during lockdown. Everything had gone well and it was looking good. We’d bought an extra box of laminate just in case I cut any bits wrongly and Anna had ordered more than enough of the scotia...

Laminate Flooring Lockdown DIY

It may be almost 18 months since the installation of some LED lights prompted a re-decoration of the hall, but I think it is now (almost) finally finished. The combination of a Bank Holiday Easter weekend and the Coronavirus lockdown were the perfect set of circumstances to do some DIY. The flooring and accessories arrived...

Home Improvements

For those of you who think that Borth is a grey, dreary place where the sun never shines – You’re Wrong! Just take a look at what the sun here has done to our once orange carpet. It’s turned it green. Admittedly it was a fairly inexpensive carpet as we couldn’t afford much more after...

A ‘Proper’ Bank Holiday Weekend – Garden DIY

I don’t normally do Bank Holiday weekends as I never used to have the chance. When I worked as a Zookeeper then Bank Holidays were always very busy so there was no chance of a day off. The same was true whilst I was a Beach lifeguard in North Devon, and as a student in...

Bedroom Progress

So that Anna doesn’t tell me off again for not blogging about the new bedroom furniture I thought Id better post some photos of the progress so far to accompany her previous post. More stuff should be arriving on Thursday so no doubt I shall be ‘hard at it in the bedroom’ again on Thursday...
