Good Evening: Monday 14th November

We have been laying carpet tiles in the lounge today and managed to get all of the furniture out except our two settees so that we could work. Getting the old carpet up was a doddle, yet I thought that would be quite a game, but it appears they didn’t use that much in the way of glue or carpet tape when it was originally laid.
The carpets were all new when we arrived in 2017, but Maggie kept pulling threads and although Hubby managed to repair the damage, the carpet was looking tired.We had already replaced the one on the hall as that looked shabby and were pleased with the result, so decided to do the same in the lounge. Typically the tiles were no longer available and when we sourced an alternative, were double the price so it was put on hold.
Purely by chance, Hubby discovered they were back in stock and we ordered four packs. They were five pounds a box more expensive than when we bought the hall ones, but they are heavy duty and should thus be hard wearing.
Hubby has done a good job and we are now looking for different styles of shelving for our knick knacks to try and give us a bit more space.
We shall do a tip run tomorrow to dispose of the old carpet which we have rolled up and put on the roof rack of the car in readiness.

Off the catch up with pingbacks and comments now. Thanks to everyone in advance for taking part in this week’s Share Your World and today’s 3TC.
Keep safe!

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.

    Photos!! I am curious as to how it looks… We are in need of replacing the carpet in the hall and bedroom and have considered the tiles but I’m hesitant…

    • We’ve used carpet tiles before and found them easy enough to lay. We had a couple of tilts in that one box seemed to be 2mm short on one side and a couple of tiles were a lighter colour but these were spotted and we had enough to do the job using the short ones for the edges. We had them in our bungalow in Poole and they lasted for years.

    The carpet in my hall-way doesn’t look tired. I’d say it’s actually gone to sleep!
