another day in Paradise

Had a good cuppa tea and 2 slices of vegemite toast and about to get going down to No 2 sons place to continue the tiling of the kitchen! Talk about tired. I was so tired last night, I fell into bed covered in white thinset! I just touched my neck and a blob of thinset fell off!

At least this time I look like a snowman instead of the usual black fingernail routine.

Energy, all I need is energy today. Dave and I will get the tiling and grouting complete (gotta love that match the grout and thinset routine) and then if I can still stand up I will give their kitchen and lounge room the Diva flick....and make it lovely for their return tonight (LOL my own place is a disaster re cleaning)....

The girls from Moreton Bay College just picked up some MORE tiles and grout. We loaned them our nippers recenlty. I am mentoring them in the HAA school awards. These grade 10 girls live gone all out setting up a mini mosaic business for their goal. They are making the gifts for the senior school; what a great idea and making mosaic picture frames. So proud of them. Wynnum school did this a couple of years ago and I mentored them too.

Ok, time to shower and get back into the white thinset.

worn out!

...been at son's tiling his kitchen which has been renovated....what a job! Trying to find a straight plumb line was nearly impossible but we did it! Decided on all white vit tiles (2.5 x 2.5 cm) and a double row of plain black...very plain, very stark, white grout (believe it or not) and it looks sensational. I just about went crazy trying to work out where to start. Took about 3 hours just measuring and then had to seal the concrete walls, do a render and scratch coat and then start tiling.
We are going back very early in the morning to get it finished before they come back from the coast (!!!!).
Had f ish and chips for tea, Polly will be jealous but need chocolate badly. Too tired to even wash off the thinset......
