Sorry not to be around and posting. My Mum had a heart attack last Thursday so I have been visiting her in the hospital, as well as trying to keep the house tidy whilst the kitchen remodelling is taking place! All being well, Mum should be coming home in the next couple of days and the kitchen will be installed next week. We also have a new boiler going in at around the same time with the associated changes to the plumbing .. .. oh, and did I mention the electrics to be rewired too!
This is what the kitchen looks like at the moment - the wall is almost down and the living space feels very spacious now! The fridge freezer had to be moved and the door you can just see beside it is being blocked up later this week. The cabinets along the back wall will all be coming out and replaced with new ones with a breakfast bar going in where the wall was.
I just hope that it's not going to be too stressful for Mum. She has tv in her room so can escape if she wants too, but I am sure she will be happier sat in a corner of the living area watching the men at work! I can take her around to a neighbour's home if things get really noisy and messy, although cooking for her is going to be a bit of a nightmare for a while with just a hob and microwave (the oven is knackered). She has been diagnosed as diabetic so I will have to be careful with the meal planning .. .. and she so loved Cornish Ice-cream but can't have it any more.
I'll take pictures as things go along, and hope to be able to get back to crafting in a week or so. I know I've not been around much to catch up with my loyal followers and friends, hopefully once Mum is home I can find a little 'me' time whilst she has her afternoon nap.
