Work in Progress November

So this is WiP November, going out in December, and if I'm honest with you (and I do try to be) it's already wildly out of date. 

Kitchen units in process . . .

The past month I've been fully focussed on getting the flat wholly habitable. Not finished, because there are still doors to paint and curtains to make and pictures to hang and other bits and pieces. But all the rooms painted and furniture in and useable. 

And the floor waiting to be grouted (and cleaned for that matter!)

In this final push everything else has taken a back seat. Including this blog. I've missed it, and I have recorded a load of things to show you later, but in November it was just one thing too much.

But this was where I was about 3 weeks ago. Which is pretty far from the last time I shared an update. I'd finished off the tiling in the bathroom, on the splash back and the skirtings. The kitchen units had started going in, and there are now curtains in the bedroom which feels very grown up coming from the sheets of foam board I'd been using!

Of course the upside in this post being delayed is you won't have to wait long for the next WiP; in a week or so I'll be sharing the flat in it's full Christmas regalia. There'll be furniture in the living room and everything!
