So Far So Good: The Wednesday Blog Hop..

So far so good!! My open plan kitchen is on it's way. The shelves are up and one coat of black varnish is nearly covered it. (This photo was taken a few days ago!). So far it has used 3 tins of varnish. My husband had to come home from work tonight and drive out miles to our nearest Ikea for another 4 tins of varnish to cover the rest and varnish it once more.

I don't think I ever want to varnish my own shelves again!! There has been tears, lol! Hopefully it will look great once finished!!

My week has been mad. You know when you start one job, then another then your day to day jobs start mounting up? Well that!!

Yesterday I help set up my husband set up our daughters new loft bed. Then when he went to work, I put up a floor to ceiling wall length kitchen shelve set up. All by myself. Totally wore myself out.

Here is a sneak peek at what I got up to:

My daughter is off to big school, how and when did the years go by so quickly!?

She is OK with going but I am a bag of nerves!! I hope she enjoys it.

Mollie And The Fallen Apples : WW Or Not So Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop..

Mollie is always searching for something.

Then she found the fallen apple off the apple trees. 

First she though they were mini balls, she loves to play ball!!

Then she left then as she did not quite like the taste!!
