It hasn't all been sitting around though ...... Pete has been busy getting the outside drainage enlarged which entailed pulling out the small one ( after we dug out all the dirt it had in it), digging a trench and installing a larger drainage system. MEantime I've been busy with the timber kitchen bench tops which were extremely sticky in sections! After discovering sanding didn't work because of a wax covering, I've had to use boiling water, gumption cleaner, a hard scrubbing brush and a lot of "elbow grease". Can you see how dirty that water is on the bench tops? So the benchtops will be a much lighter colour and covered with a kitchen grade oil ( like can be used on bread boards). I got one cleaned down when we were here at Christmas time and I've cleaned down another 2 today ( well almost - it takes ages!!!), which leaves one long one to go!
We haven't had much luck with concreters! We thought we would have underneath done during our first week up here,but it seems we may be lucky to even get the quote done before we leave ☹️ I'm quite disappointed about that as I had tried to get it organised from down south about 5 weeks ago, but little we can do about it! So only 1 week left, well about 5 days actually before we have to head back down on the 2 day trek ready for work the following week ........ better enjoy our next few days!
Have a great weekend ........oh, and Scruffy says Hi as well - he has recovered well and just waiting for his facial hair to grow back again - thanks to those who asked after him 😘
