Kitchen refurb

 Good morning, its been a while.

The crafty corner is still packed away and I'll be honest.. I'm not sure if it will ever be reinstated.

We've just finished renovation of our kitchen, knocking out the chimney breast to create a bigger kitchen.

Next the roof is been redone and my chimney removed as its pulling our gable end away.

Then the bathroom and living room need to be done.

We are so busy at work too, this year especially has been one where I seem to have been at work more than at home. The joys of been self employed I suppose.

Our laddo is now in sixth form and doing very well as well as a little part time job working for me.

Here is a timeline video from before, during and after.

New doors have since been done, skirting board is done and my fold down table is done and still drying at the moment so is not folded down, I just need to get a couple of fold down stools. I then need to paint and then I can remove the protective plastic backing from all the. Kitchen cupboards etc. 

I hope everyone in craft land is well and still busy crafting away.

Much love

Thanks so much for popping by.

So now to why no challenges this week.

I have debated this decision for months and I`m sure people have noticed the lack of posts on my blog.
I don`t have the mojo for crafting anymore and my time seems to get thinner and thinner so I `ve made the decison to put my crafty corner into storage at my Mums for now.
I am really hoping that given time the crafty bug will bite me again, in the meantime I am going to be doing lots of decorating, to get our forever home how we would like it to be.
I have another card to share in a fortnights time and then that will be it, I am hopng not for too long.
I shall leave my blog open as theres years worth of posts amd I really do hope to be back.
I totally understand if people choose to unfollow me.
Wishing you all much love and I`ll see you again yet in a couple of weeks.
I also have a few unblogged cards that I might pop into one final post.
Hugs Nic.
