I tried to take a pic but my water damaged / maltreated mobile wasn't up for it.

Thanks Robina and SileNceR. I feel like I need a couple of days off to get it sorted but we'll make do with some hours after work.
I don't think we'll…

Thanks Robina .
Heading into our third night in and the house is still a mess (albeit a slowly reducing mess) and I am shattered!

I thought I had more pictures of the splash back. The laundry has been done now (same as the kitchen) and the whole lot is grouted. I suppose it gives…

Just ordered new linen (because it a Sheridan's sale section is hard to ignore) and had to deliberate on where to have it sent.
The move next weekend is completely non-negotiable…
