Kitchen done...but never got our discount...Grrrrrrr...because we never used them to get our glass for behind and side of oven...we have used another company who will be cstom making the glass csize to fit...and in our vLaura Ashley colour...think that should be ready sometime next week...kitchen peole will be coming back to tile the floor of conservatory as we want it the same as the kitchen..marble tile...already paid for too...but the latest story on that is that they are still held up at customs!!!! No rush at the moment as conservatory should be finishe by Friday as the other guy didn't come till about 12 today as up hospital all night with his mother who is very ill...glass to go in tomora...then Friday finishing bits...thank god...electrician next week I think then plasterer..it does go on...brad will be doing inside himself..just be glad when workmen gone!!!..
I kept shutting the gate today...still thinking of poor old Toddy who we still terribly miss :'(

We are still waiting for the tiles to come from the kithen people...they reckon they are held up at customs!!!....just when you think you have heard every excuse under the sun!!! along comes another!!! Grrrrrr
Also waiting for the blokes to come next week...hopefully...to fit the glass behing the oven
then all done in kitchen...conservatory has to be tiled...when they arrive...plastered and lighting...PHEW..i have had this week off and I feel totally drained!!! ;D

What a terrible time you have been having :o :o :o

dreadful company - who is it? - so I dont ever get a kitchen / conservatory from them :-X :-X :-X
What makes people think you would be happy to leave a key for any old tom dick or harry to wander round your house? bet they wouldnt do it :-X :-X
