After the weekend my husband has continued to work every night this week on the tiling to try to make sure we meet our deadline – the day that the plumber comes by to install all our bathroomwares.
The spacers we have been waiting for have arrived and during the wait we have been slowly building up the herringbone feature wall. The pattern took a bit of working out, so Anthony tried laying them on the floor first to get a feel for it.
There’s been some odd cuts and a bit of fiddling around to get the wall of tiles straight. Although this pattern is not as straight forward as the floor, I have found these much easier to cut and lay.
Still a few more to go, but the plan is to complete this wall before the weekend.
In terms of how we are feeling, exhausted is an understatement. What with work and 2 kids, plus the tiling, it’s been a pretty tiring week and to think there’s still so much more to go makes me feel even worse. I know that Anthony is extremely hard working and will not quit till it’s complete, but even I’m wondering if he we will lose motivation because it’s just all getting too much. We are hoping though that before we make a start in knocking some of the walls down (the next big hurdle), that we can have a mini holiday with the kids. Till then, we keep working…
