Alexis  Renovating our flat in the West End of Glasgow under the supervision of Luna the cat

W E E K E N D || Home from ship to find so much of the decoration of the close has been finished... don’t ya just love it when that happens.
.
Disclaimer- this actually never happens to me. Coming home from ship usually involves fire fighting some flat related disaster and reallocating funds straight to some sort of tradesman. .

M O N D A Y || So this weekend we did nothing in the flat... and it was amazing. I made brownies and read a book. And then about 9 o’clock last night my husband remembered he had a lot of work due this morning so cut to us two at the dining table calculators in hand . This morning my mum is coming round to help me paint woodwork in the kitchen and sand some doors ... I really just want to eat biscuits and drink tea with her. But she is bringing her decorating clothes and paint brushes so she means business @christinemck200

This is the view of a corner of my bedroom and isn’t it lovely. .

The flat has returned to normal after last night. This machine was a big help this morning in returning me to normal.

So the epically long hallway project continues on stories... .

So it only took 18 months but the elephant and hare knocker is on our ultra shiny red front door... .

Things are getting very, very exciting. Luna is off to her Nana’s this evening and is even more excited about that than she is about a new hallway floor. .

Today Operation Presentable Bathroom is a go. The bathroom is currently a 15 square foot 1970s vortex with plaster swirls, blue loo and once had a lovely red plaid carpet. Today we have set ourselves a tiny little budget to make it as presentable as possible until it is ripped out next year. .
.
Also the builder gave me a 3 figure quote to lay the hall floor. David thinks he can do a better job and include an access hatch for the pipewok too- I’m just hoping he doesn’t mention anything that to do with hydraulics ...

Now we have lots and lots and lots of white walls (that are no longer falling down) it’s going to prints and art galore in this gaff.

Escaping the flat to do some life admin at Glasgow City Council #glasgow #glasgowcitycouncil #peoplemakeglasgow

This is the final piece of gross cable that filled this flat last year about to binned. It was everywhere. Every room had at least one phone connection. Wires ran everywhere as did those weird little hooks. And this is the last of it...

Wishing away the time until the hearth arrives for the fireplace to be installed. I have been staring at this piece of plywood for 9 months now. First world problems I know but god it’s annoying watching TV and starring at half a job... so the painter/ builder/ plumber should be here in the next couple of weeks to re plaster the walls, decorate and fit the fireplace. I hate painting and I’m not very good at it (and neither is my husband but don’t tell him) so to save me the time and sheer inconvenience I pay someone- this niggles me but I just try not to think about it. .
.
After that it will be a few months of watching the pennies and finally get that bathroom done. After the electrical fire with the shower on Saturday morning it seems somewhat more urgent. So no takeaways, no nights out and strictly shopping to a budget. Anyone else on instagram follow a renovation project and think what do you earn to allow for this? Seriously how are you under 30, married with two children and have a small mansion? Oh and still have a summer holiday? PLEASE tell me your secret. Anyways talking about money is rude right 😜.

After a year of fishing for my socks in a cardboard box, then in hanging IKEA shelves I now have furniture in my bedroom. Renovating is basically an extreme exercise in hiding everything you own from dust and then failing. I’m pretty sure we were keeping clothes in the kitchen cupboards at one point too. But no longer... and for the rest of our clothes the built in wardrobes will pop up at some point. .
