Flooring Update

Funny how when you go looking for something in particular you can never find it, but come across something else you were after some time ago.
I said here that our flooring problem would hopefully be sorted by the end of the month.
Hubby did it yesterday.

He had decided to do the floor in the bathroom, but trying to find a piece of lino 1.5m x 1m was impossible, not even a cut off that small would have been kept, so he looked at carpet tiles instead.

We’d already explored this possibility, but these were suitably backed, and 500cm square as opposed to 300cm. He bought 6, and intended to lay them on Saturday.
Well, we all know now my nose put the kibosh on that, so he was ready to do it yesterday, knowing I would keep well out of the way (read rest up) and let him get on with it.

Would you know the tiles were a perfect width for our gangway, so he went off to the shop and purchased some more.
I have to admit it all looks pretty damn swish, and the colour isn’t a bad match to our seating area carpet and towel curtains (centre tile closest here).
Total cost of the job, just over fifty quid, including bathroom. Warm toesies at last!

Maggie was a little confused at first as there was no clicking of claws as she trotted up and down in the night to her food bowl and water!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. I’m glad you found a good solution at a reasonable price (even if poor Maggie had to have a little confusion!).

  2. Nothing beats warm tootsie! Well done.
