The subway tile is partly installed. 3" x 6" subway is a huge pain in the butt to install. Not hard, but time consuming, back aching work.
Feeling pretty grumpy today. My ancient Labrador Gracie has been on UK time now for about 6 months. I used to have to wake her up in the morning, but suddenly over to UK time. Made even worse by Canada's switch to Daylight Savings this past weekend. Too old to manage the stairs, she sleeps in the living room. When she wakes she stands at the bottom of the stairs and barks. And barks. We've tried the old "don't spoil the baby" routine and just let her bark, covering our ears with the pillow. We've tried letting her out for a pee. A biscuit. Last night Mr. Raz slept on the couch beside her. She just keeps barking. The Valium has not helped. She can't even stand up when she takes it. So we've been up since 4 am. Maybe she needs a holiday in Bath.
So I am grumpy.
So I am grumpy.
And it doesn't help that Razmataz was selected for a tax audit which happens tomorrow.
It's kinda like being at the airport. When security or immigration looks at you a certain way and you know you are innocent, but you worry they may have some secret knowledge or you've been mixed up with someone else...........you get a little anxious and sweaty.
I have always been a squeaky clean rule follower all my life when it comes to things like this. My records are impeccable, but it bothers me still. I am looking forward to it being over.
But Reno's make me happy. Here Simon is marking the level line. Something not often done in this house before. It will end up taking 2 men 2 days to install just the subway tile. In the meantime, I have been hatching plans with Simon for taking out the kitchen wall and adding a bathroom. Never sure how I could fit a powder room in on the main level, I had a light bulb moment at 4:30am and ran it by Simon today who said it would work. (it's all to do with the plumbing stack)
The bead board is up. Now the beams will be added and the moldings.
The medicine cabinet arrived and is installed. It reflects a lot of light back into the bedroom from the adjacent windows.
I hope you all had a great weekend and your week is off to a good start.
