I'm already dreaming of it (while awake at work mind you..they have some funny problem with people napping on the job) hanging over my dining room table. Is it too big for the room? Possibly. Will it light up the room like an airport runway? Defninitely. Has my life sunk to a new low now that I'm lusting after a light fixture? Doubt it cause this is pretty lovely and it's only .99p. Yup that's right less than £1. How good is that?! You'd love it to if you found it for that price. Got to love Ebay...now if only Dom would love it as much as me. Now just to convince him it's a goer.
Ps. The kitchen is basically done and more pics soon.

Despite all hard work the living room is still looking just as crowded as always. We hopefully will soon be able to reclaim our living room. Plus it doesn't help when the weather does this to you with one hour long monster rainstorm (see pic 2 below).
So all in all it's not been moving too fast and despite our best attempts to prevent it the kitchen plumbing still likes to leak on us, but we're slowly, but surely getting there. One or two more posts about this and we should be done I think!! Then I can write about pretty stuff...not a manky flooded road. Honestly I've never been more sick of something in my entire life, but I know I'll love it when it's over!

I would love to say the some part of it is original but I don't think MDF was around in the 1820s....
Luckily the kitchen has continued to go in, but god it took a lot of pain, swearing, effort and grumpy moods to get where we are today. Will put more photos up soon so you can see how it looks now.
Ps. Note to IKEA since you don't really seem all that bothered about getting your stuff back I hope you don't mind if EBAY has it. I think you owe me.

Here's another view of the kitchen while my lovely hubby yelling at Ikea for not delivering our kitchen the first time (I've never dealt with a bigger group of idiots). But on a good note I'm very happy by how bright it is in the kitchen.
Now for the bad news.......my dining room ceiling now looks like this:

I know it's been ages, but my only excuse is that my camera decided to hide under some of the debris from the building works. Now last time you saw my lovely house it was in less than ideal standards. So in an effort to be better I'll put up a few posts over the next couple days and hopefully get all caught up (in much less time than it took the builders to do the job)!
There is nothing quite as exciting as seeing walls reappear with strange wires sticking out of them....lame I know, but even more exciting is our bathroom update!
(Classy I know)
Now is may not look like much but at least we've got a floor and basic stuff in and yes we have cleared out the bathtub.
