When you think you’ve finally figured out a new layout which works, it’s as satisfying as putting in the last piece of a jigsaw puzzle! There’s a huge amount of wasted space at the moment, with poorly arranged storage areas (read dumping grounds) and a massive double garage which we don’t really need. What we do want is: 1. A large open plan living area. 2. A separate snug. 3. A decent size master bedroom with an en-suite which isn’t essentially a shower in a cupboard. 4. To fix access to one of the bedrooms so that you don’t have to walk through what could be a 4th bedroom to get to it - not essential, but a bonus. Any comments or suggestions are gratefully received. It’s all a bit approximate as we’re not in yet, and I’m only working off measurements from the estate agent’s floor plan! Also thanks to @themanorproject for recommending @magicplan_app for the drawings - it is soooo easy to use!
To say this was my first time tiling, I've felt so proud with how I've managed to maintain the hexagon shape around the corner. You'd think it would just be 2 halves but it's not as one slides into the back of the other :) • • •
MORNINNNGGGG - do you remember that episode of Friends where...Chandler and Joey switch apartments briefly with Rachel and Monica and when they go back to normal Joey’s so happy because of the singing guy across the alleyway who wakes him up each morning? Today I feel like singing guy, had such a good day yesterday and feel super motivated 🙌🏻 . SO! I spoke about this a bit on Stories yesterday and you can catch up with highlights called #DailyDIY . It’s my attempt to make myself more accountable and to try and do something each day, even a little small thing, to move the house progress forward. We’ve been here over 5 years and there are so many little, easy jobs that I never get round to so I’m going to use you all to get shit done. You know, like the stupid tumble dryer filter that took me about 2 months to paint, doesn’t it look so much better now blended in with the blue?? . You can read more about it in today’s blog post but if you want to join in with your home updates, anything from booking in a plumber to cleaning windows to landscaping a garden, just tag me either on the grid or on Stories and use #DailyDIY so I can share what you’re up to. Hopefully we can inspire each other 🤞🏻On today’s list, painting the back of my kitchen door the final coat, painting a planter and possibly getting some handles fitted on the living room cupboards 💪🏻 .

The idea of renovating, extending or self-building is a dream many of us have, but often we don't know where to start... or perhaps we find ourselves mid-project with many unanswered questions and mounting challenges. Our expert panellists will be there to guide you, talk about their experiences and answer your questions. Joining us for this panel talk will be: Meera @firstsenseinteriors / building & restoration experts @worthingtonsltd / Sandra @the_idle_hands / Sharon @hornsby_style If you have something specific you need to know just drop us an email: 4interiorjunction@gmail.com or comment below and we will collate your questions ready for them!
People keep talking about the #GoldenHour . I'll take my 7 a.m. over anytime of the day.
Took some time, but the main wall is done. Just a few half walls to do now. #tiling #bathroom #diy #renovation #lovemyrenovation
I remember taking this photo like it was yesterday. Instead, it was a cold day in February. I had just got back from work and had waited for the builders to finish for the day and for my husband to arrive home so we could check out the latest development. I opened the kitchen door, looked up and for the first time ever, saw the beginning of our roof. Finally. After all the stress, the hiccups and the thoughts of never getting to this point were becoming worth it. Finally we were getting somewhere. So here it is. The photo of me opening the kitchen door and looking up and being presented with my new view until the roof was put on. #progress #extension #construction #constructionsite #buildingsite #oldtonew #buildingourhome #newbuild #foreverhome #familyhome #homeextension #renovation #myrenostory #lovemyrenovation #pitchedroof #timber #diyhomedecor #fixerupper #roof #progresspic #1930srenovation #1930shome #newkitchen #selfbuild #project #journey #transformation #instahouse #housetohome
Repost @creating.cavendish • • • • • • Day 17 - Lesson Learnt The biggest lesson we have learnt so far is to ask the stupid questions. We took for granted that kitchens from @ikeauk Would be the same as every other kitchen we had viewed. Silly us! Who knew that these kitchens come without any service void? Not us. So the simple task of fitting the kitchen against the freshly plastered walls has taken four times longer than it should. Plumbing has had to be rerouted. Wiring has had to be moved. Freshly plastered walls have had to be chiselled. Lesson well and truly learnt! In other news it’s been sunny today which would have been great had I not been stuck in meetings all day with my boss crunching numbers. At least walking the pup will be fun tonight. Have a great evening whatever you’re up to 😊 . . . #scandikitchen #kitchenadventures #renovationlife #myrenostory #mydailyrenovation #renovati #leasonlearned • • • #Lovemyrenovation #Monthlychallenge #renovating #Homeblogger #homeaccount #Renovation #Houseproject #Housetohome
Couldn't agree with this lesson more! • Repost @cralice_house • • • • • • Day 17 - Lesson learnt. Take pictures of the cables and pipes in stud walls before they are plaster-boarded. It’s saved us many accidents being able to look back a pictures and figure out where anything dangerous is before we start screwing anything into the walls. • • #studwalls #mydailyrenovation #buildingsite #buildingsitehome #buildingsitelife #renovation #renovationproject #renoaddict #lessonslearnt #projecthouse #oldhousenewhome #homebloggers #houseandhome #1930ssemi #1930shouse #1930shomerenovation • • • #Lovemyrenovation #Monthlychallenge #renovating #Homeblogger #homeaccount #Renovation #Houseproject #Housetohome
Ooooh… Before and Afters are my favorite, and the worse the before the better the after! 💞 We did the Airbnb photos today on #littlecarriagehouseonthealley so I'm calling it done (for now; I have a few things I still hope to do but we need to just open the doors and get going!)🍾 Swipe for three of my favorite ever before and afters 😁 (well, after and before, technically)
I know how Instagram works now. I’ve kind of got the hang of it. So, I know this post isn’t going to attract as many likes as say, the lounge chandelier or the hall floor or the open patio doors. 🤷🏻‍♀️ But, it’s storage hack on day 17 @myhousethismonth so I’m feeling compelled to share. Poor little 🧒🏼 has the smallest bedroom ON EARTH (True story), so to compensate for lack of square footage, 🤷🏻‍♂️ built a bed/ toy- store/ den. Using 2 @ikeauk kallax storage cubes. 😏 (swipe if you’re one of the few people in the country not to own one of these beauts) Obviously I’m desperate to slap on a coat of farrow and ball but 🤷🏻‍♂️ is set on the natural wood effect. Any opinions? Or suggestion about how I can persuade him to get his brushes out? . . . . . . #myhousethismonth #kidsroom #kidsbedroom #cornerofmyhome #howihome #homedecor #ikeaatmine #homedecoration #instahome #realhomes #hygge #myhome #interiorstyling #interiors4all #interiorinspo #interiordesign #interior #nestandflourish #interiorsnapshot #interiorboom #spotlightonmyhome #walltowallstyle #lovemyrenovation #styleithappy #ikeahacks #bedroomdesign #myhomevibe
Kitchen Renovation: Day 119 And we’re baking. And I’m loving it. There may still be a long list of jobs still to finish before the kitchen is technically complete. But here’s two homemade lemon meringue pies knocked up for Father’s Day Sunday Roast that tell a different story. It’s been a long time coming. But the roasties and Yorkshire puds were worth the wait. And the pies went down a treat. . . . . #astolat #kitchenreno #myrenostory #myrenovationthismonth #myperiodhomestyle #mydailyrenovation #loverenovate #oldkitchennewkitchen #victorianhouserenovation #houserenovation #renovation #renovationproject #renovationlife #victorianrenovation #lovemyrenovation #homestyle #homeinsp #oldhousenewhome #periodproperty #periodhomesofinsta #housetohome #homeinterior #homeimprovement #victorianhouse #victorianhome #vintagehouse #vintagehome
We have a grand total of 12 flat pack kitchen units to assessable 🤦🏻‍♀️ need all the help we can get 🙈 the 2 year old isn’t really helping 😂#flatpackkitchen #kitchen #kitchendiy #diykitchen #homerenovation #homedecor #lovemyrenovation #flatpack
The good the bad and the ugly! This weekend we ripped up all the flooring downstairs and found these beautiful original green hearth tiles and then some not so beautiful original... #renovations #firsttimebuyer #edwardianhome #originalfeatures #interiors #homestyle #decor #myhome_mydecor #lovemyrenovation
This will be the last time you see these blotchy walls (until I show some before and afters) as the painting is officially underway! I can’t believe how much one coat on the ceiling has made to the feel of the room...now about another 100 to go!
Looking back over the estate agent’s photos it’s weird to think we live in the same house as this. Our version is so much dustier and filled to the brim with toys and tools, though - and I suppose weirdly given that its full of belongings - it feels really bare comparatively. We haven’t updated any decor yet or put more than basic blinds up in the windows. All in good time, I’m sure. . . . . . . . #interiorsinspo #housedesign #interiors #diyhome #doityourself #doerupper #interiordesign #renovation #homedecor #1930shouse #1930srenovation #fixerupper #myhome #myhouse #homereno #lovemyrenovation #instahome #herts #stalbans #stalbansrenovation #workinprogress

Monday soon came back around. Tom must be exhausted, he put some hard work into the garden over the weekend 👏🏻. I’m dying to go outside and take a picture but I can’t leave the house just yet as I’m still wearing pjs and my ridiculous flamingo slippers 🤷🏻‍♀️ ____ #housetohome #cornerofmyhome #renovationproject #kitchenrenovation #interior123 #lovemyrenovation #oakworktop #diykitchens #interior123 #myrenovation #styleithappy #myhomestyle #myhomevibe #instadaily #actualinstagramhome #colourmyhome #howihome
I took the leftover bedroom paint and gave it a whirl on the fireplace. We are wondering if we should go darker or if this color will work. What should we do? . . . #fireplace #fireplacemakeover #paintedbrick #graybrick #craftsmanstyle #craftsmanhome #renovation #1920shouse #columbusrealestate #oldhouses #renovationlife #1920shouserenovation #craftsmanstylehome #lovemyrenovation #instahome #renovationproject
Sooooo glad we’ve left these #copper pipes exposed. These feed the underfloor heating manifold, that is in the cupboard on the other side of the wall. . They’re 22mm so we didn’t really want to chase the single skin wall and board over. We’ve also left the hot and cold water pipes to the sink exposed, so it all matches in. . These were a bit more tricky, as they had to be set before plastering, so the plasterers did a great job of skimming round the screws we left in the wall.
Bye bye 👋 purple radiator! Eventually we will replace our radiators with something a little more fancy but in the meantime we’ve just been giving them a little bit of love as we do each room. This has its first coat of primer on, as does the window frame. Now just to decide what colour to paint them. I’m actually thinking something dark so it’s a little bit different. . . . . . . #renovating #renovation #houserenovation #refurbishment #homesweethome #myhousethismonth #housetohome #spotlightonmyhome #victorianhouse #victorianterrace #terracedhouse #myhomevibe #cornerofmyhome #howihome #victorianrenovation #pocketofmyhome #colourmyhome #inmydomain #lovemyrenovation #styleithappy #myhousebeautiful #edwardianrenovation #mygorgeousgaff #walltowallstyle #rockmystylishhome #mydailyrenovation #renovationlife
Always a Jack Russell on the back of the love seat keeping a watchful eye on the garden 😁 Today I took the girls skateboarding at @projektsmcr and left my husband in bed with bacon and three warm furry doggies. It actually stopped raining for about five minutes so I dashed outside and carefully watered the flowers, roses, tomatoes and olives with various types of plant food 😋 To keep myself going during all this laboursome activity I consumed at least five homemade chocolate chip cookies, phew 😍 We also bought a new garden parasol on the basis that we will surely need it for at least an hour this summer, and our old one has really had its chips after serving valiantly for over ten years 😅 I'm currently sitting under it while it drizzles a little bit 😁 Finally, if you haven't read @theresagromski 's insightful and honest post about influencer events, head over to her page to check it out. My personal take on this particular event is disappointment at seeing yet another event with minimal diversity. The UK is not solely white, cis-gender, straight and able-bodied, so why do these types of marketing events not try harder to include diverse guest lists? We need to do better. I include myself in this, of course - it's so easy to forget your own privilege and realise you've taken something for granted 😲 There's so much more work to be done x
Today is our 2 year anniversary of buying number 67! Crazy how time flies, we have still got a long way to go to make it our perfect home but have made amazing progress so far. We are on the countdown to getting the new windows fitted within the next few weeks too 🤞🏼 #twoyears #twoyearanniversary #timeflieswhenyourehavingfun #timeflieswhenyourerenovating • • • • • #renovation #renovationproject #renovationlife #renovationideas #housetohome #diy #beforeandafter #homeinspo #propertyrefurbishment #propertyrenovation #lovemyrenovation #homeimprovement #gardenrefurb #myrangemaster #homeowners #newhome #familyhome #homeideas #housedecor #houseandgarden #1960shouse
It's a shame I didn't have my newly built @whamworld recycling station ready for tonight's video 😔 I'm not sure if it's pretty or modern as such as I'm probably biased 😂 But I've loved taking time out this week to challenge myself on a build that's been a tidy solution... and it's only been made with off cuts except the hardware. And no more Hans fishing through the recycling to lick empty dog good tins!! Before we just had clear boxes and it looked gross!! 🤢 I've made it with a series of techniques I've picked up along the way and love when they all meet on a new project. Butt hinges... routing... biscuit joins and adding leftover radiator cover screens which ties in nicely. Oh and creating a handle jig for accuracy. It has been challenging though. I realised I needed to modify the hinge lid as couldn't lift fully as needed clearance for the wall... you'll see what I mean next week, but it's all lessons learnt! 🙈 Anyway, tomorrow is paint and stain day. Will be glad when the last bits of tools are put away 😄 . . . . . #makersofinstagram #craftygirl #makermovement #makerlife #makesomething #waketomake #makercommunity #youtubecreator #makersvillage #easydiy #diyhomedecor #lovemyrenovation #buildlikeagirl #girlswithtools #gettingcrafty #makergirl #moveoverbob #woodworking #woodworkingwoman #renovator #contractorsofinsta #homerenovations #homebuilder #fixandflip #flipthishouse #houseflipping #cabinet recycling
Watched the #SexBusiness today and I was heartbroken. Addiction and Mental health are things that are very close to my heart and it just broke me with the stories that I watched .. 💔 just makes you so grateful 🙏🏿 - Hope your all having a lovely Sunday ❤️✨
Aaaaaand flop on the sofa! A fab weekend camping but am I ready for my own bed tonight 😴 Happy Fathers Day to all of the Dads out there & thinking of those people for who today has been a tough one 💕 Here are a pic of my peonies & a sneak peak at the charity shop cupboard which I revamped into ‘Jill’s Gin Bar!’🍸What’s your favourite spirit?

This happened today, making progress #lovemyrenovation still cooking on a make shift hob and washing up in the bath, but getting there 😁
Day 16: Feeling Grateful 🖤 This space is going to be epic once it’s done. I can’t wait to entertain in this space #mydailyrenovation #livingspace #diningarea #kitchendecor
Made the most of an afternoon! 💪🏼Many a heated conversation with my father about trying to save the good plaster/get rid of the bad and just bond and skim it but the amount of hairline cracks and poor brickwork underneath means it all needs to come off! 😩 He may have won this one . . . Time for microwave mac&cheese and a glass of wine in prep for love island 🌴 oh the #renovation life!
Happy Fathers Day 🌺 A little before and after to remember how far we have come!! It’s not finished yet but 👉🏼 swipe for how it was when we got the keys. My dad put our lights are up and I love them ✨👏🏼 #hallway #parquetfloor #homerenovation

Drawing up plans to rearrange our crazy triangular extension 🤔 new plan would open out the back of the house making one usable space, rather than a series of rooms which have no purpose #housemakeover #houserenovation #diy #lovemyrenovation #victorianhome #victorianhouse #houzz #myhousethismonth #myhousedesign #decor #houseproject #extension
Them fresh plaster feels 😍⁣ ⁣ The rest of the house (except the kitchen) is now plastered...be gone 25 layers of wallpaper and paint! Never ever do we ever want to see wallpaper in this house again! Little bit of stripping of the skirts and dado rail left to do and ready for a white wash. ⁣ ⁣ Hopefully things will start to come together a lot quicker now 🤞🏽⁣ ⁣ #victorianhouserenovation #renovation #renovationlife #victorianhouse #periodproperty #periodhome #renovationproject #propertyrenovation #myrenostory #diy #lovemyrenovation #baywindow #currenthomeview #housetohome
Possibly the most boring thing I’ve ever said BUT... If someone had said to me 2 and half years ago, “The part of this renovation that will bring you most joy is the installation of a WASHING LINE”, I would have laughed in their face. Turns out, I did not know myself at all. If this doesn’t add £100k to our house value I don’t know what will 🤪 #cornerofmyhome #diyinteriors #myhousebeautiful #interiors #renovation #lovemyrenovation #renovationinspiration #victorian #diy #diyrenovation #interiorsinspo #interiorsforinspo #howihome #styleithappy #myhometrend #hyggehome #myhomestyle #pocketofmyhome #colourmyhome #dailydecordetail #myperiodhomestyle #urbangarden #homereno #laundry #mrshinch #hinchedhomee #thelittlethingsinlife
Grout! Never have I been so happy to see grout. The tiling hasn’t been straightforward and there are still bits to finish, but the majority is done which means we can get the shower screen on and the whole thing working. Fed up of hauling my 9 months pregnant ass in and out of a daily bath, and hair washing under a running shower is definitely going to be simpler than the current temporary fix. And don’t they look beautiful. I’m so happy with the finish. Blood, sweat, tears and so many arguments to get to this point - but so worth it (@thechickfix may feel differently however) . . . . . . . #interiorsinspo #housedesign #interiors #diyhome #doityourself #doerupper #interiordesign #renovation #homedecor #1930shouse #1930srenovation #fixerupper #myhome #myhouse #homereno #lovemyrenovation #instahome #herts #stalbans #stalbansrenovation #workinprogress #herringbone #bathroom #waterfallshower #bathroomdesign #herringbonetile #tiling
• WINDOW SEAT •⁣ ⁣ SWIPE FOR BEFORE & AFTER ⏩⁣ ⁣ Yesterday Kier started making our living room window seat in the bay window! The room isn't huge, so we could only really fit one large sofa, so to utilise the space & have more seating for guests, we decided to add a window seat. ⁣ ⁣ The other reason we wanted one, was to cover the ugly electrics that are randomly located beneath the window. We spoke to the electricity board a number of times and to move the meter was a few grand, something we didn't see the point in doing. ⁣ ⁣ The seat will be on hinges and act as extra storage. As will the back, but for access to the meter. ⁣ ⁣ I'm going to add some panelling to the front to make it less flat & we will be having some seat covers made to fit that match with our sofa! ⁣ ⁣ #windowseat #baywindow #purbeckstone #myhomeblog #interiors  #interiorstyle  #interiordesign #interiorsofinstagram  #mycosyhome  #styleithappy #instahome  #picoftheday  #pocketofmyhome  #1920shouse  ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ #diy  #homeimprovements  #renovation  #houserenovating #lovemyrenovation  #restoration  #interiordesignbloggers #homereno  #myhomestyle #myhome  #countrylife  #hertfordshire  #livingroomdecor #doerupper  #housetohome

Paul Weller was brilliant on Friday at Westonbirt & fab lunch and natter yesterday with my girlfriend, after discussing menopause & weight gain, we tucked into an enormous portion of Eton mess as that's 1 of our 5 a day! We have no internet! after hours of faffing this morning, Phil's resorted to nipping round to neighbours to print off docs he needs for the Paris airshow. So on top of my already almighty list of to do's this week, I'll need Dr Dan here tomorrow (our computer guru in the village) to fix it el pronto! We're so reliant as both of us have home offices, this pic is Phil's space with a no entry sign to keep me out (not nice). It's our village fair today & the fairground opposite our house is already open with Whitney Houston blasting out so a little wander up the High Street later after dropping my man to the airport. Then walk Sid & chill, have a good one..... #homeofficedecor #myconsideredhome #sundayvibes #lovemyrenovation #howwelive #howihome #myperiodhomestyle #mystylishhome #myinteriorsquares #storyofmyhome #rusticmodern #spotlightonmyhome #greathomestaketime #interiorismo #realhomesofinstagram #instahomedecor #houseandgarden #countryliving #myhousebeautiful #myhousethismonth #nestandthrive #loveyourhome #styledupinterior
Where to start with premature purchases there have been so many! 😂 the worst has to be the sofa we got delivered on 22nd March... 😳 Darbs suggested June/July but I wanted to be optimistic.

Another morning post, cos’ it’s actually impossible to lay in when you’ve no bedroom blinds & there’s birds cooing down the chimney. ___ If we focused on one room at once the kitchen wouldn’t look so bare but lack of patience encourages us to start every room AND the garden simultaneously, so there we are 🤷🏻‍♀️🙄 ___ #diykitchen #oakbeam #interior123 #myrenovation #mystylenest #housetohome #styleithappy #myhomestyle #myhomevibe #lovemyrenovation #countrykitchen #makeyourhomeyourhaven #myhometrend #dailydecordose #lovetohome #ihavethisthingwithcolour #spotlightonmyhome

Someone’s trash - our treasure! The lovely @jomcg29 had this iron gate at her recently bought house and offered it us when It caught Jon’s eye! A day of stripping, rust proofing and painting and it’s ready to live on as a gate for our new side fence!
Looks very nearly black in this light. . But look at that chimney breast pop! Just need to get some brick acid on it, and give it a seal. Thanks to @sean_toomey for recommending the right product.
Totally got my heart set on #juniperash by @littlegreenepaintcompany I just can't decide on what combo on my walls with the picture rails. Skirting to ceiling? Skirting to ceiling with white/darker blue picture rail?

We did it! We’ve no hot water, the place is a tip, we’re shattered and stony broke, but after exactly 6 months of extensive renovation and extension, 4.5 months of living in temporary accommodation and exactly a week before my due date 🤰🏼, we’re finally sleeping under our own roof tonight. Thanks for all the kind messages of support and congratulations, I’ll reply to everyone ASAP. #loverenovate #lovemyrenovation #renovationlife #renovationrealities
P r e m a t u r e p u r c h a s e. Day 15 of @mydailyrenovation and for sure the most premature (and expensive) purchase was the beautiful window shutters we bought for the master bedroom once it had been decorated. Do not ever buy window shutters if you think you might change your windows 🤦‍♀️ they no longer fit since we had our windows changed and now they look like this.... ——> swipe right 😩 I can’t seem to sell them second hand- does anyone have any ideas on what I can do with them to try and make them not the biggest mistake I’ve made??? #prematurepurchase #shuttersforsale #window #shuttersofdreams #sashwindows #baywindow #bespokeshutters #renovationmistake #expensivemistake #baywindowshutters #whiteshutters #shutters #mydailyrenovation #renovationproject #victorianterrace #victorianterracerenovation #victorianrenovation #renovation #renovationideas #renovationlife #lovemyrenovation #myrenostory #homerestoration #renovatinginbath #firsttimerenovators #houseproject #housetohome #diyrenovation
Productive day alert! Today we finished a few odd tasks (I love days like this!!) And one of them was installing the pocket sliding door. For anyone looking for one, check out Rocket door frames! So much cheaper than the eclisse ones and this one works beautifully (swipe to see the satisfying whoosh and bump). I got this 15% off code from the Home Renovation show too: HBR2019. I think it's good until the end of the year. • • •
I actually went round the house today, having a little photo shoot 🤣 I’ve seriously been lacking my mojo, and have been the worst at taking photos. But I have a whole sparkling new collection, waiting just for you 😜⁣ ⁣ So kicking it off with my beautiful Peonies - My all time favourite flower 💕 My Mum bought us these this to celebrate a year to our one year countdown to our wedding!

I rarely post this side of the room as it has two massive instafails- the TV and that gorgeous 70s radiator. The TV issue can only really be solved once we can afford one of those fangled picture ones, but unless we win the lottery (or I bump off mr murf for the life insurance 🤔), I‘ve resigned myself to living with it. But at some point in the not too distant future I really want to replace the radiator with a column radiator. However, convincing Mr Murf to allow a plumber across the threshold after the extension debacle when our rogue plumbers shoddy work nearly resulted in our new ceiling caving in is proving rather difficult!! So for now, I‘ll settle for painting it, and strategically placing a couple of faux plants in front. But I’m at a bit of a loss as to what to use... do I need I specialist radiator paint? Or will just a normal eggshell do? ____ #mynordicroom #livingroomdecor #livingroomideas #prettylittleinteriors #mylvngrm #interiormilk #1930shouse #pocketofmyhome #doingneutralright #howwedwell #spotthenewtrend #scandimaximalism #interieurs #interiores #bhghome #nestandthrive #instahome #modernrustic #interior4u #inspiremeneutral #floorboards #howimonochrome #howivintage #northernhomesuk #renovationproject #lovemyrenovation
Need to do another coat, but it’s getting there. Also need to paint around the bifold. . Tomorrow’s job is repairing some of the cracks in the floor, ready for the tiler to start the week after next! . If only @barclaycarduk would sort out my limit now, so we can actually order our kitchen. How can it take 6 weeks to confirm proof of income?!
