Domestic stuff: Apologies

I am in the middle of the process of trying to get my kitchen brought into the 21st century.
This has involved a huge amount of cleaning, as well as discarding numerous things that I had kept, ‘just in case’.

As a result, I am absolutley exhausted tonight, and unable to keep up with all your posts.

I am sorry, but I assure you that ‘normal service’ will be resumed soon. Meanwhile, if I have not read your post, or liked and commented, now you know why.

Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Not quite as vintage as that mate. (Great film though!) I have to make the dreaded drive to B&Q on Thursday, to select tiles and colour choices with my wife. Of course, whatever she decides will be perfect for me! πŸ™‚
      Cheers, Pete.


  1. Re-organizing the Kitchen -Yahoo! Once done, it’ll be good to go for another 5-20 years, right? LOL – I’m doing the same here and there as time permits – to get work stations lined up for various operations, and to organize things that in way that better fits with our daily life of me not spending all day fixing complicated dishes for 3 meals a day NOR just defaulting to ‘crackers and cheese for supper – take it or leave it cuz there is no milk for a bowl of cereal” operations – πŸ˜€

    1. It is a very dated style, built-in by the previous owner around 1990. But it is arranged quite well, so we are just having the wooden doors painted, and the multi-coloured tiles replaced with a neutral tone. After that the whole room is being painted. We may also get some new flooring, but that will have to wait for now.
      Best wishes, Pete.

    1. God forbid! Not only do I not want to do it, I am hopeless! It is just a ‘rehash’ of what we have now. New tiles, and existing cupboards painted over. I will just pay the two guys; one to tile, the other to paint. πŸ™‚
      Best wishes, Pete.

    1. I have done some of the ‘labouring’, and the tiler is coming in to estimate tomorrow. When he has finished, the painter is going to cover the existing cupboards with a slightly more modern (paint) finish. That’s it. I haven’t got the cash to spare for a full re-fit. πŸ™‚
      Best wishes, Pete.

            1. Mine’s quite modern but worn. I’d like a complete new kitchen and I don’t even mind the expense as money in the bank is worthless now, might as well invest in the property. But I want it done quickly!

    1. I’m not doing it! I will be ‘getting a man in’. I am just clearing it all up ready. All we are doing is haveing new tiling, and the existing cupboards painted over the current wood finish. A newly-built kitchen would cost around Β£15,000, and I can’t spare that. πŸ™‚
      Best wishes, Pete.

      1. Well, damn, son… problem solved! Go sit down and kick back with Ollie and call your kitchen a retro-1989 look.. in honor for those who lived back then.. and leave it alone! πŸ™‚
