I know! It has been a while. A week to be exact since I last posted and I promised that I would be more regular again but life happens 🙂

So, the renovations are now finished on Bird Cottage – Apartment 2, Peter’s Place and they are a sight to behold. I would be lying if I didn’t say that it has been a long week and rather chaotic. What was originally meant to be a day or two at the most stretched to the final touches (I think!!!!) being done yesterday.

Last week, I have to admit that I was not my normally perky self for several reasons and having to liberate my undies and bra from the storage room at 6:30 in the morning probably didn’t make me the most happy go lucky person. Also knowing that the gardener was lifting the lawn mower over and above them also didn’t help. I am not a prude but I also am not an exhibitionist either.

In fact last week, I was unintentionally rude to the Amazing Jetske and I am terribly sorry about that! As the renos were s..l…o…w…l…y unfolding, Jetske the ever bright, caring and optimistic lady was attempting to pull me out of my state of crankiness. After all I was essentially living in their house non-stop except to actually sleep in my own bed. She brought me home the most beautiful bouquet of flowers. As she proudly passed them to me, my wicked sense of humor took control and before I could stop myself I said that they were beautiful but I had no were to put them 😦 As Tanyala and I burst into to peals of laughter poor Jetske chastened me for my rudeness…”I am truly sorry!” And of course, she proceeded to beautifully arrange them and place them in my bedroom were I could enjoy from the cozy confines of my bed. In fact, the bouquet is almost a week old and still looking fresh and beautiful.

Okay, enough talk as I am sure that you want to see the final results of the makeover. I am thrilled with the finished product and the kitchen is so much easier to cook in and the closet, well it is a gift from Heaven and Jetske. So here are the pictures.

Please also note the presence of the beautiful bouquet and new blinds! The blinds are amazing…I got to sleep in Sunday morning thanks to them and no uninvited men straying into perform any kind of handy work.

Beautiful aren’t    they!

So before my power goes out again, I need to get back into my kitchen and make supper.

Although the space is so much easier to work in now, I am still trying to get use to where everything now is. Quite often when I am cooking I will still turn behind me to the closet to get stuff out of the fridge which was there up until last week. Oh well, my brain will soon inprint my fridge’s new location…let’s hope that I don’t actually put the milk in the closet and leave there though…..
