Christmas is here in my new lounge!

We've done most of the skirting and Ollie has built his entertainment unit. We've finally put the new curtains up and the new rug down. Brian refuses to walk on the rug and skirts around the tiny space around the outside. It's really funny to watch. Especially when you pick him up and drop him in the middle of it! He jumps off again real quick!

Thursday was our department Christmas do so Friday I was a bit worse for wear. I had to go home from work at lunch!

Christmas has finally arrived!

Yesterday started really badly. Our bunny, Fuzz, has been off her food since Saturday and her eyes all gunked up on Monday so we made an appointment for the vet yesterday morning. Unfortunately it was Myxomatosis and the kindest thing was to have her put to sleep. So we are now rabbitless and we don't think we will be replacing her. It's too hard when they get sick. The vet said that she was so unlucky as Myxi season is well over but it has a 2 week incubation period so she must have been bitten by the last infected mossie of the year.

Still after a quick trip to Hempsted Sainsbury's and B & Q we got stuck back into the DIY. We managed to fit the blind to the kitchen window before nan and granddad came to visit. Then we did the run of skirting in the lounge where the Christmas tree was to go. So finally I could put Christmas up! The tree is now in it's corner. I wasn't sure at first about the green in our red and gold colour scheme, but it looks really good. I'll try and get some piccies up at the weekend. I'm off out for my department Christmas party tonight and I'm staying at Bobbie's tonight.

Take That!

I went to see Take That on Monday!!! How very sad. It was absolutely brilliant!

These photos are from Clare as I can't get the ones off my phone at the moment.

We were 7 people away from Take That, we were in the second row on the floor at the O2 and at the end of our row was the mobile stage bit where they did a good few songs. It was the best concert ever! I knew all the words to all the songs apart from one from their first album (I wasn't really that big a fan the first time round)

It was a great girly night out and the 6 of us had all you can eat Chinese and some wine before hand and then sang along to the Take That CD in the car on the way home.

Plus we also saw on the way out we had been sitting a few rows in front of the guy that played Stuart in Neighbours! Real star spotting.

It was gone midnight by the time I got in and so I've been a tad tired the last couple of days - we went to Ikea last night as well and got a few bits for the house. We've also picked out the kitchen worktops that we want.

Ta Da!

Here is our finished bathroom!

Well I say finished, but I still need to seal around the bath (the sealant had gone out of date) and foam the hole in the wall where the waste pipe for the sink goes (the foam can had foamed itself shut!) I also need to give the tiles another scrub as there is still some grout on them. Plus I need to put the edging around the tiling on the sink. So not really finished, but a lot more finished than it was this time last week!

You can just see my lovelly tiling in the mirror in the picture. I am really proud of myself, even if I do have many cuts, lacerations and baddys on my fingers and about 17 less layers of skin on my hands.

Ollie has also been busy constructing the shelves for the TV accessories. (DVD player, Amp etc)
