We decided to start fitting out the utility room.
So, with the Short One on a theatre trip with her grandparents and with the Manly One packed off to work for the day I got to work... on the IKEA flat-pack unit
...and a bit of plumbing for the waste pipe
...and the fitting of the unit and the sink
...and plumbing in the tap and the waste (I admit to feeling a little over-excited about having a kitchen tap)
...and fitting the lovely oak work top at the side
...and I still had time left to wash a couple of dishes, get changed into clean clothes and have a cup of tea before it was time to leave.*
The Nitty Gritty:
- Sink, tap, unit and worktop from IKEA
- Plumbing parts are Marley brand - available from all good DIY stores
I have been listening too:
- The glorious 6music again ... I was especially grateful to the wonderful Lauren Laverne for playing United States of Whatever
*We still have no hot water at the house, and only 1 working socket... and the builders are, as I type, finishing off the structural work to the roof... so we are not yet able to live at home.
