Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Kitchen update!

Good evening! Well today didn't start so well, my stupid legs weren't working properly and I felt so weak and horrible that I had to make the decision not to go and watch my boys (Bristol Rovers) :0( But they did win to cheer me up!

So I've been resting, though I did play a bit with my crafty things while listening to the football commentary. But all this resting gave me chance to sort my kitchen photos to share with you all. So here's a look at my kitchen before, during and how it is now. It's not finished, still grouting and sealing to do and obviously it needs redecorating and all the bits and bobs need to go back in, but I'll share those pics when it's all sparkly new.

First the before shots!




Then the new kitchen arrived so it was time to create a temporary one after all I needed to be able to make a cuppa, so we set this up in the back room for the time being.


You should have seen the boxes that arrived.


So then it was all action as the old was ripped out and the new put in.


Lots got done on Thursday.



It's hard to tell in the pictures but all of the cupboards have been lowered, you can see in some pics that the cupboards are well down into the previous tiled area. The work tops and sink have also been lowered so that I can reach easier. I'm only little (4ft 10) and with my conditions it's hard to bend down or stretch up so the new layout will mean I can access more of the cupboards!

Okay this is what it looks like at the moment.

All of the handles are on and it's been tiled. The man is coming back on Monday to grout, then I'm having it decorated by which ever of the men in my family volunteer! At least everything can go back in the cupboards now. It's quite fun deciding where to put everything. Think there will be lots of empty space as I've got far more cupboards than before but less stuff as I had a major sort when the kitchen was emptied!

Will show the final pictures once it's decorated and all my pictures and stuff is back in too.

Take care Zo xx

oooh what fun ..... I'm still trying to decide what we are going to do with our kitchen ...but, we too will be renovating later this spring/summer.... it will actually be quite a bit mess because we are removing ceiling and all....errgghhhh!! plaster and plenty of dust and mess ...I'm not looking forward to that bit...but, afterwards...that's what I'm trying to focus on.... hahha.... if I could just get my head around the part after the mess I'd be fine!
