Everyone was at the house today...
painters, electricians, tilers, bobcats, cabinet makers.
I must admit, my head is starting to spin now
(and that's not from the Pomegranate and Lemongrass Martini)
I've been talking to Curtain Makers & Stonemasons,
Cabinet Makers & Landscape Gardeners....etc, etc.
I'm starting to feel very excited that it's all progressing,
but overwhelmed by the thought of finishing the house,
packing, moving (plus moving our office) and planning our trip
and a 40th Birthday in the next 3 months.
It's going to be a busy 3 months.... to say the least
The driveway will go in soon
No, that black plastic is not our curtains
The floor looks good and everyone is respecting my 'Socks Only' Rule
The powder room is looking nice and dark
I think it will need an ornate mirror of some sort (and a pendant light)
The benchtop is going to be Pietra Grey Marble the same as the tiles
I'm still besotted with the Marble Wall.
Look at that nice afternoon sunlight.
This is looking down the very long hallway to our room
This is the kids' bathroom
Recessed Mirrored Shaving Cupboards
& Walnut Veneer drawers under bench
Multi-Grey Marble tiles in our ensuite
(which are looking very nice indeed)
Our tiler is very, very slow....
but does an incredible job and is the marble master!
The Laundry wall tiles are so perfectly laid that they don't look like tiles!
We have light switches too!
I even managed to squeeze in a Mother's Day High Tea today
I whipped up these yummy salmon pastries
(which would've tasted even better with a glass of Champagne!)
One of the other mums made these mini lemon meringue pies
which tasted as good as they looked
We were treated to a beautiful rendition of
'Sunshine, Lollipops & Rainbows'.
R. is at such a gorgeous age
(and thinks I am "beautiful" even when I look like I haven't slept)
Enjoy the rest of the week.
