My major 'blonde' moment for yesterday........looking at the fireplace tiles all laid out on the floor, by my tiler, I exclaimed," oh they're a different colour to the ones I ordered". "They're wet from just being cut", he said sympathetically, obviously marvelling at how I have survived this far in life with such a limited number of firing neurons.
The 'moments' continued.... driving to the lighting shop for lightbulbs, purchasing outdoor lights and forgetting lightbulbs for them!....... ending up being 2 light bulbs short for one chandelier... despite counting and recounting before I left.
Next - wringing my hands over a missing light fitting, checking every cupboard as instructed by the electricians.... and standing there when they walked to the first cupboard on their arrival and found it.
Next - sitting in the car, waiting for school pickup, tallying powerpoints and light switches, with the keys in the ignition.... slightly turned on....... FLAT BATTERY!!!!
I think I'm done. I need to go back to handbags and pretties for a while. In a few weeks, after handover, I am going to move my blog over to my webstore blog once the house is finished. I will still post about the house and it's 'leisurely paced' (my way of saying, we have run out of mortgage) interior fit out over at my new site. The place might be a bit empty for a while.... beanbags look ok with chandeliers, don't they?!! At least we will be in!
