Although we have been doing quite a lot of work on the house over the past few months, it has been mostly DIY so we have been able to work at our own pace with minimum disruption. This week, however, has been different. The bathroom fitting team arrived on Tuesday and ‘ripped’ out our old bathroom completely, meaning we had no water or heating for the whole day. Thank goodness for my Dyson fan heater, as it’s amazing how quickly the house got cold with the front door wide open!
Anyway, back to the bathroom, it really makes you appreciate the fact that we have ‘water on tap’ in this country. Being without it for just part of one day reminds you how often we wash our hands and how important our choice of hand wash is, so that it doesn’t dry them. I’m already a fan of both the Liz Earle and Molton Brown hand washes… I wonder if there may also be something gorgeous in the upcoming Elemis Christmas Today’s Special Value? Hint, hint.
Without the bath, basin and loo in the bathroom, you would have thought the space would have looked bigger, but I think it actually looks smaller. I’m beginning to panic that the addition of a separate shower is going to make it all look too cramped – fingers crossed I’m wrong.
Here are the before and during pictures, hopefully this time next week I’ll be posting the ‘after’.
We have been without a bath or shower since Tuesday, so I have been making use of the facilities at QVC. Fortunately our daughter only lives a 15 minute drive away, so ‘im indoors has been able to stay clean too! I’m really excited to see the finished room, but it is all a bit of a ‘kerfuffle’! The guys are doing a great job though.
The countdown to Christmas is well and truly on – it always seems so close when we hit November, and you can say Christmas is next month! Halloween kind of passes me by, but I do like to try and catch a fireworks display on Bonfire Night.
Speaking of which, have any of you been watching Gunpowder on BBC1? It certainly puts a different slant on the ‘history’ I was fed at school. Am I the only one who had to hide behind my hands on the gruesome bits?
As well as being Bonfire Night on Sunday, it is also a day of beauty on QVC’s main channel, with an IT Cosmetics Today’s Special Value. You can get the fantastic make-up set online now.
Then next Sunday it is the Elemis Christmas Today’s Special Value, which I believe will be available to purchase from this coming Wednesday.
I’m not going to give you any clues at this point as to what is inside these boxes (apart from the massive hint I dropped above) but I will tell you that it comes in a choice of two options and I can’t choose between them as they are both divine.
I’ll give you a full run down of contents on next week’s blog.
Well, I must dash if I’m going to squeeze a shower in before going on air. Have a great weekend, keep yourselves and your pets safe if you are doing fireworks at home.
