How many people does it take to hang a door?!

It felt like a really busy weekend!

Saturday, Reza was working all day so I had a mass clear up (although strangely it didn't look a lot different) and also tidied up the garden. The main point being that the window people are coming this week and won't be able to access the lounge window with all that rubbish in the way!! I did also clear the leaves from the lawn and swept up etc. Was quite pleased with myself :) Also glad I did it on Sat as it poured the next day!

Sunday ended up being a quite random day. We went to the cafe for breakfast with friends and one said they were going to B&Q so I thought it would be a good opportunity for me to buy the doors we need for upstairs and put them in his van. I got 3 lovely Oak (not solid!) doors for a bargain price. Reza wasn't keen at first but I think he's warmed to them. The boys then spend the whole afternoon fitting the bathroom door. Wow .... I just didn't realised how long it takes and how much goes into it. I'm so happy now ... it looks fab! Just need to stain the door and paint the frame. Only 2 more to fit but I think we'll get a professional in for those ;)

The best bit by far of my weekend was the fact I finally had a bath in the new bathroom!!! woop woooooop. It was so nice :) It still needs to be sealed round the edges etc but we'll do that this week and then use it again towards the weekend. Reza also had a shower in the new wet room bit. I think we're probably going to need a half screen along one side as the water travels to the basin and our guests will get wet feet if someone's had a shower!! We'll work on that but it's fine for now. Here's the cool taps ... (been waiting aaaaaaaaaages to get a pic of these!)

oooh oooooh I remembered something else. We got a new cooker for free!! Just a reminder that our current cooker is like something from the war so anything post 1950's would be an improvement! We need to get the gas guy round to install but can't wait to use it and it'll match our new kitchen :)
