This year we took our holiday later than normal as we really didn't want to go to Europe in February! So we've been away for a month, got back thoroughly jet-lagged and had to hit the ground running 2 weeks ago. Not only almost full-house ever since (July, Aug and Sept are our busiest months) but finishing off kitchen renovations and, as of this morning, preps for tiling the kitchen, lounge, loo, laundry and verandah have started. Was to have been done while we were away but didn't happen so it's going to be fun juggling breakfast preps, laundry and looking after our guests for a few days!
This is the scene now - the horrible old white tiles (I've been grizzling about them for 18 years!) have been painted with primer and the lovely new ones go down tomorrow. The kitchen renovation is almost complete - just the splashback to be covered with the new tiles. Can't wait for it all to be finished!
