Project 365 2018 Week 12

The bathroom finally seems to be making progress and yet another weekend didn’t go to plan thanks to the weather.

Here’s our week in pictures…

Day 77 – Sunday 18th March – I was not expecting snow when I got up this morning! We had to postpone my daughter’s birthday party, which she was understandably upset about. I didn’t rush out for a walk in the snow like I did a couple of weeks ago, the novelty has definitely worn off.

Day 78 – Monday 19th March – the snow was almost gone, but it didn’t look quite safe enough to run. My daughter came home slightly early from school as she wasn’t feeling well. The black stuff on the bathroom is to make it waterproof.

Day 79 – Tuesday 20th March – I’m pleased to say that my daughter woke up well enough for school. I went to help out at my son’s athletics club again in the evening. It was very cold!

Day 80 – Wednesday 21st March – the work on the bathroom seems to be going rather slowly. Today is day 13 and the tiles finally started going up!

Day 81 – Thursday 22nd March – I’m pleased to say that I’m busy with work all the time now. It has taken four years of freelancing at home to get to this stage. Today I took the decision that it was finally time to let my lowest paid work go. And you know how my husband likes to do things on a whim? He started painting the new bathroom this evening.

Day 82 – Friday 23rd March – the tiling is nearly done and the ensuite is really starting to feel like a bathroom at last. Just a few more days until it’s finished!

Day 83 – Saturday 24th March – it’s a busy day for us, parkrun is done, then we’ve got my nephew’s third birthday party this morning. My younger son is at a D of E planning day, my daughter is doing a little job helping foreign students in the afternoon and my eldest is going camping. And I’m going to a 40th birthday party. So it’s another picture of bathroom stuff. This is just some of the stuff which somehow has to fit in there.

  1. Wow you still had so much snow, we had none this week. The bathroom looks great but I feel your pain with it taking a while to get done. I always want things done right away. #365

    • I was amazed how much snow we got, but at least it didn’t last long! The bathroom is still going on now, it’s taking forever!

  2. The snow in the first picture looks so pristine and beautiful, but we were also getting fed up with it. The bathroom is getting spruced up nicely. Glad you’re busy with work.

    • Thanks very much, it’s so nice not to have to worry about work at the moment. I must admit I was fed up of the snow – I usually get excited about it, but this was one snowfall too many!

  3. We managed to escape from the snow this time!

    The bathroom is really coming along now! Won’t be long until you can use it!

    • The snow took me completely by surprise! I can’t wait to use the bathroom. It will feel so strange after all this time.

  4. I thought my life was busy but I’ve only got 1 child so it’s nothing like as manic as yours! Glad working is going so well for you now

    • It is manic a lot of the time, but at least I don’t work full-time too! It’s such a relief to have more work though.

  6. The tiling looks great, bet it will be lovely once it is finished.
    How sad about your daughters party, hope you manage to reschedule, and a belated happy birthday to her.

    • Thanks very much. Yes, we managed to reschedule her party, thank goodness. Hopefully only a few days until the bathroom is finished.

  7. Glad to see the bathroom is moving along now. It’s a pity about your daughter’s birthday party though – I am fed up of the snow too.

    • Thanks. It was a real disappointment for my daughter, but we managed to reschedule her party and the two kids that couldn’t go originally were able to make it!

  8. the bathroom is looking lovely and i’m loving the colour choice for the walls #365

    Post a Reply
    • Thanks very much. We’re really pleased with the colour. We’ve got one bathroom painted white and one painted charcoal grey and we wanted something in between!

  9. The bathroom looks to be coming on well now. Can’t wait to see the finished room. Glad your daughter is feeling better. I’m so glad work is sorted fro you now. I really need to figure out what i’m going to do going forward #365

    Post a Reply
    • Good luck with sorting your work! It’s taken me four years to get to the point where I feel confident that I will have enough coming in and will be making enough money for the foreseeable future. I thought the bathroom would be done by Easter, now I’m not so sure!
