I don't know why, but this feels really significant. Yesterday we cleared out the old (soon to be new) kitchen in readiness for Patrick to "make the joints" in the plasterboard. This is the first time we have ever seen the whole kitchen empty - so seeing it empty and plasterboarded is a bit of a shock. In addition to doing the joints Patrick will be plastering the ceiling, so in about a week's time cue ranting from Simon about stupid kitchen ceiling paint.
It has taken us a while to get to this stage - we kept on running out of stuff just before we finished. This includes placo glue (we ran out twice, the second time falling two dollops short...) electrical boxes (you can see how many prises we have) and energy.
