Well the new kitchen is well and truly in and getting a lot of use. I honestly couldn't be happier with it but then look above to see what I was working with before - there is just no comparison.
As you know from my many posts about selecting the right tile - which I still haven't done yet. I just can't decide.
Back to the old kitchen which will be turned into a spare room slash craft/sewing/printing room which I am soooo excited about.
As you can see from the photo below I am part way through painting the window ready for installation of the plantation shutter. I got the frame painted in time and the guy turned up on a very hot day so Charlie and I retreated to my bedroom which is the only room in the cottage with air conditioning.
After a while I hear a crash and then a hushed 'hello'. It turns out the guy dropped a section of the shutter and knocked over the can of white paint on the floor!
He made some pathetic attempt to clean it up but gave up and came to find me.
The spill wasn't bad and I managed to clean it all up BUT he broke the shutter so he would have to take it away and have a new one ordered which would take another 8-9 weeks.
And I'm still waiting...

Don't let the title fool you, I'm not going to get all deep and meaningful here.
I wanted to share a quote I came across recently that is about me and my life - not about the cottage.
I decided a few years ago to make my life simpler and calmer. I promised myself I wouldn't take on anyone else's dramas - that's not say that I'm not there for my friends and family because I truly am but you can only be responsible for your own life.
