I got a new kitchen!
What a bloody saga it was too..I like to always have a saga in my life. I’d only just got over Lara’s Swimming Costume Saga when Lara’s Kitchen Saga began.
The saga is basically that it took 8 days longer than it was meant to..which now feels nothingy and pathetic..during those 8 days though I probably cried hourly, shouted, threatened, ate terrible convenience food, cried some more. I even cried on the phone to Wickes. I also went to Ikea for lunch just to get out of the house.
I mean it’s always fun to go to Ikea…but I waxed 35 quid on baby cushions that look like clouds.
Anyways..Wickes bunged up the orders and then the workmen were held up and then the workman got a toothache…
Blah blah, it’s the same thing that happens to anyone who ever has work done..I do get that I’m not unique here..
Even so, I felt was that Wickes were the enemy and the workmen were the poor victims…I think I had Stockholm syndrome…
But now it’s basically all done and I LOVE IT.
There are just a few more touches but it’s basically done..now all I need to do is wangle a massive refund from Wickes.
I thought I’d share some before and after shots of our downstairs…
I think you’ll agree I’ve transformed it with my natural flair for paying other people to do DIY for me.
