The new bathroom and our ONE mistake

Regular readers will know we recently got our ensuite bathroom done after a very long wait. Our old bathroom was horrible and virtually un-useable – the toilet didn’t flush and the shower had only one temperature (boiling), it had become somewhere used only for brushing our teeth and washing hands and faces. We were determined to get our new bathroom right. And we really did. It is beautiful. But we did just make one small...

The new ensuite bathroom

I can hardly believe it myself, but after over four weeks of work and over four years of waiting, our new ensuite bathroom is finished! I’ve wanted the ensuite bathroom done ever since we moved into our house over four years ago, but obviously the main bathroom and the kitchen were much higher priorities.

Project 365 2018 Week 10

  Work on the bathroom is well underway (hooray!) and the weather has warmed up, thank goodness. Here’s our week in pictures… Day 63 – Sunday 4th March – this was the snow at 8am. I managed to go for a six mile run (my first run since last Tuesday) and just had to avoid the slush. The temperature got up to 10 degrees and by the end of the day the snow was all gone! Day 64 – Monday 5th March –...
