ATC 'D' is for Dragonfly from Cat.
I received a lovely Artist Trading Card from Cat today. It's for the letter 'D' and is a Dragonfly.
Cat also enclosed a pretty card and some bits and pieces for me to use in my collages:
I shall have fun with those.
I have just finished my 'E', which I will post tomorrow. My E is for Earwig or Ear and Wig!
This is heading off to America to Mim. I hope she likes it.
As you know, Jim and I travelled South to pick up a cooker and it is now fitted in place, although we have to wait for the electrician before it'll be properly installed. Here it is:
The work top did go all the way across the top, so Jim cut the middle out and has made a jolly good job of it I think:
It fits perfectly in the space where the washing machine used to be. That is now in our old bathroom - now a laundry/utility room.
The old cooker used to be here, with cupboards either side of it:
Jim always disliked the fact that the sink and work surfaces were on one side of the kitchen and the cooker at the other end! So, the cupboards have been moved for now and are here:
This is a bit of a temporary situation as tomorrow we are going to get some new work surfaces. The fridge, which was where the cupboard on the right was, is to be moved into the lobby further on the right, then the work surface can go from a bit nearer the boiler and all the way to the end of the fridge as it is now. Have you got that? No? I'm not surprised!!
These cupboards are going over to the other side too!! Well, hopefully you'll see it soon! We are also buying some wood tomorrow too. The other exciting thing is that Jim is going to make a small island - on wheels I think! It will enable us to have 2 stools under it for the odd cup of tea and a cupboard under for the saucepans, which I hate being visible.
So it's all happening again. We already have the paint to decorate when the work is finished. My first job is to remove the tiles underneath the cupboards (last photo, above). Ping, ping, that should be fun!
Jim has been to the UK for the day today and I went with Ann Broderick to a funeral mass. One of the 'coffee morning' ladies' brother-in-law has recently died, in America, so they held a remembrance mass for him in Ireland. It was Catholic of course, which I am not, but I followed Ann and managed to stand and sit in all the right places. I miss the hymns in a Catholic service and the whole building was very austere. I suppose it's what you are used to.
Now I'm off to bed. Jim and I usually do a crossword before we settle down. Happy Tuesday everyone.
