Finally the work is done on the security lights and burglar alarm. This means at last I can get rid of the ghastly carpet on the stairs, hall and landing.
Its not cheap carpet - its really thick bouncy stuff. Apparently it would cost approx £50 per metre to buy it, although quite why anyone would buy such a frankly offensive carpet is beyond me. I'm sure it was all the rage back in the day. Ahem.
Seriously, it is horrible. Brown and beige and flowery. Ugh. Each to their own and all that but I could not live with it. So a lovely new one is coming on Tuesday. Hoorah!!
We have opted for a plain colour, with a sort of fleck - its lovely. I hadn't really budgeted for it, but I just cannot tolerate it a day longer than I had to, so it had to go.
Tuesday it is. Hip hip!! Will post some pics when its done. Excited much? Yes indeedy :)
