I haven't left town although there have been times when I did feel like it...you know when the builders don't turn up when they say they will.
Here are a few pics along with the last of the bad hair day ATC's...
Sorry that they are sooo late but you can see we have been busy here.
This is the the P-bath.... just waiting to be fitted that day.
This is the old toilet which gives a new meaning to an outside loo...lol...do you remember having a lavvy down in the yard with newspaper squares hanging on either a 6inch nail or string....and if your dad was sat in the there reading the next days toilet paper and you wanted to go.... you ran up the back lane and asked your aunty if you could use hers... oh to have an outside lavvy that was real posh... going up in the world you were...and boy do I remember my aunty Winnie moving house and having an inside loo AND a bathroom.... no more tin baths in front of the fire...and boy was I lucky.... The 3 boys went in after me...cos I know they weeeeeed in that bath water...lol.
Here we have the plasterers getting well plastered in the sitting room.
This was only last week Brrr....Alecia GD2 who was 15 yesterday had been forced inside a very small built in wardrobe painting it for me......lol with her shower cap on....not the wellies (sisters wellies) they were for going to the outside tap to wash her paint tray out.
Does anyone remember outside taps the only means of water to the house...I do, my mums mam lived in the upstairs flat well it was 1 room actually you did everything in there...it had stairs on the outside and you would have to go down and fetch the water in the kettle, that was then placed on the fire to make a cup of tea.... and if the tap froze over night you had it....we have it sooo lucky
The next 2 pics are my Kitchen that is not yet finished ....how did I live in all of this .... I used that outside tap for 6 weeks...lol.
The last of the bad hair day ATC's....the 1st is from Paula from Brunei who just happens to be in New Zealand at the mo
The Last of the BHD ATC showcase comes from Karen.... could you imagine waking up to this on a morning....
I wasn't one of the lucky ones... :(
