It hardly seems that long since i was typing my last post, but it appears that a week has flown already. My craft room stll looks like this, hence the not really crafting with Julia's merry band but i am soooooo hoping to get back in the swing of crafting next week. That is once i assemble my stash into one craft area in one room. So i thought this week i would show the utter chaos...
The reason my craft room looks like this ...... since the weather turned colder here we have been looking at heating systems. We finally decided on a fireplace. So on Monday the workmen came and my house turned into no-mans-land of dust, plaster, bricks and electric cable.
You might think by now that we bought an electric fire.....NO......but we had to relocate all the aircon units, the TV and phone points and sockets.
There was a general hive of activity, lots of tea making. Turkish workers work best when supplied with a constant source of tea. We went through a whole box of sugar cubes, they like their tea strong and sweet! YUCK!
By 10.30am it all got a little too much for me so I escaped and left Kerem to it. By 5.30pm I returned to the scene of devastation. It took them til 10.30pm to actually finish everything. By which time i had been hiding in my relocated craft room for 4 hours. I was starving and bored so ventured out at 9.30pm for the last gasp.
The remainder of Monday night and Tuesday all day were designated cleaning. From the clean on monday we still had to rewipe everything again on the tuesday morning as the dust was still settling.
My christmas tree looks like it has had a dusting of snow, but really i just couldnt bear to take it all apart to clean and put it back together again, so a good shake and vac will have to do for now.
Today has been a day of washing. 2 rooms were locked. That seemingly doesnt matter when it comes to dust. It is like....no passport needed to cross the border, so I have done about 8 loads of washing. Thankfully it has been about 20 C today so most of the washing is now in the ironing pile.
