It took a bit of time yesterday, before my contractor came over, but finally he did! And he finished his work! WHOOPEEEEEE!!!! Now we have to paint some of the woodwork ourselves, but that isn;t really a lot of work. But oh boy, are we happy it is done now! Only the contractor didn;t make good advertisement for himself. The work he did is good, and looks nice, but the way of handling appointments(or not actually) could change. Well, next time we need somebody to do some work(hopefully we don;t nedd it for a looong time) we surely don;t want to deal with him. I was so pissed off at the end, that yesterday when he was finished he of course wanted the rest of the money. I agreed to pay it cash, that's no problem, but I told him to come back on Friday, if he could and then pick it up, because I didn;t have a chanve to get it from the bank(hahaha, I had it already). But I thought, if he can let us wait unnessacary, so can I too! Ohit's not nice from me, and I usually don;t act like that but with all the trouble we had, well, he can wait for a few days. He didn;t like it and was doing all he could to change it but I stood firm! If he sticks to the appointment he will be back on Friday evening, around 20.00 o'clock. We;ll see if that happens.
Now today I think Jan and I will be in the backroom to clean up all the mess that is there. We had to moce a closet from there because the contractor had to fix bit a crack in the wall, where the wind could play thourgh too much, LOL. Well, all the stuff is lying around now in that room and we have to put the (not too big) closet in another part of the room and put all the things back into it. Oh, the room will look much better after that will be done. Now we still have to bear for one day another contractor who will put the windows up from our upper neighbours, that will be done on Saturday. And then I've had it for a while with contracting business.
And oh what a blessing for you, no more rambling from me about contractors and such! May be just one more time, when I will have some pics of the finished thing, bu today weather isn;t looking nice at all, so perhaps I will wait a day.
You should go again to Edna's blog, to look at another layout she did with a kit I made for her birthdaypresent. She is also offerig the QP as a freebie, so hurry up, it;s a lovely QP!
And my other scrapbooking friend Snowy, had some sad news from her home country Germany, that the cat she left behind when she moved over to the UK, had died at the age of 16. I know it is always sad to loose a pet. Consolation is though her Timmie had a good life at her parents.
Okay, I can tell you I did work on the new DD we are already preparing for next year. But Snowy is a bit ahead of me! LOL, sometimes it's looking almost like a bet who is coming up first with some work for it. Snowy, you did beat me, just a bit till now but I am coming near, I am catching up, be prepared ROFL!!
If you want to know what is coming up, you should take a look at her blog.
I have another nice kit for you with some interesting papers(I think) and named it "Tell the Story". Well, with layouts we make we do tell a bit of a story, isn't it? Hopefully the cleaning mess will go quickly so that I can do some more on the DD and the other kits I already started. Have a fine day you all!
