Hard to take pics of, but. Tuesday is inauguration of the shower! (The silicon needs to dry perfectly before, and won’t be until monday night, so, tuesday!)
The corner shelves are from Ikea. Nice, functional, cheap. Yay!
Apparently I still need to retouch some spots on the walls. Yeah, my back is so sore I’ve been waking up at around 3-4am these past two nights from the pain. After taking a painkiller to be able to sleep. Not a happy camper.
And back from the dentist, I have no wisdom any more. That was the last wisdom teeth being pulled today. Anaesthetics make me feel crappy too.
He gets drunk, and proceeds to screw the labour of love and 4.5 days of work (and I mean 12 hours of work per day). Why? Because it’s not up to “his standards”. Nevermind the leaking toilets, the wallpaper coming off the walls, or the ivy distroying the façade. Yeah, I’m pissed.
Now, that will take a lovely how many days to fix? I’ll update you.
Yeah, I told you on the previous post. Trip to London, bathroom renovation, trip to Düsseldorf. So now I’m back and it’s time to play catch up. I’ll write an entry about the trip to London soon, meanwhile you can amuse yourself with pictures. The trip to Düsseldorf was to visit our friend Laura, her husband Christian and their daughter Lumi before they move to Finland. We had fun, and we relaxed some and didn’t take pictures because we really didn’t do much tourist stuff. If you want pics, you can check last year’s tho.
And if you want to know some about the bathroom, we also created a gallery to share our progress. First day we removed all the things from the bathroom, removed the paper and fixed the wall. Then tuesday we kept on fixing the wall because the plaster was completely fucked here and there, also masked all the stuff, and painted on some primer for the tiling and started painting the walls. Wednesday saw us tiling the shower plus the sink backsplash, and painting the rest of the colors. And thursday was spent retouching the paint and grouting all the tiling area. However we were short a handfull of grout and that will be finished today. On friday before leaving to Düsseldorf, we cleaned everything like crazies, and put some accesories and our closets back in.
And because a post without pictures seems boring to most people:

Uhm, yes, I’m supposed to tag six people who haven’t done this lately. Lets see…Smartash, CJ, Zanne, Asa, KnittingKitty and Purlpower.
And for those who are wondering, I’m not dead or falleth off the internet, I’m just very busy. Last weekend (8th-10th August) we were on a city break to London. This week (11th-14th August), we’ll be renovating the bathroom. First stage done (everything removed and ready to tile and paint), more to come. And next weekend (15th-17th August) we’re on another city trip, this time to Düsseldorf. We have booked a weekend special at Relexa Rattingen City (10 minutes away from Düsseldorf), with a candle-light dinner, use of spa, breakfast buffet, and more things for a nice price. So yeah, I’m not much online at the moment. More about the London and Düsseldorf trips when I have time to write all the stuff down!
On knitting news, I “joined” the Ravelympics (Ravelry inside link, if you want to read you have to be a member. I joined cause they made me join). I’m knitting the Anastasia Socks, in Opal Neon 1934.
Last thursday, the 31st of July, I got a parcel in the mail in Spain, my mother told me. I asked from whom, since I wasn’t expecting anything at all, and it was from my friend Michael who is on a year break in Japan.
