Preparation for the Decorator.
Sunday 13th was a rest day after the previous busy days travelling. The only task I needed to do was to purchase some tools, screwdrivers, pliers, and a small electric drill, from B&Q to enable me to work on Monday.
Monday's main task was to prepare the house for the decorator before his start day on Tuesday. We need his team to have a clear run at the job in hand to meet our deadline. This meant me taking down all the curtains and tracks, and lampshades, along with the lifting and removal of all the carpets.
During the morning the electrician called to discuss his involvement in replacing some of the storage heaters and installation of new power sockets for the new kitchen. The afternoon was rounded off by the preliminary visit of the kitchen fitter to agree the new layout and selection of the style, appliances, sink and taps.
The house was ready for painting to start in the morning so we finished reasonably early at approximately 17:00 hrs.
