FINGERS CROSSED FOR A FINISH TODAY

I'm expecting the flooring men at about 8.30 this morning.  I'm so excited.  By the end of the day we will have carpet in the family room!
And on the stairs.  So cool.  Stew is really looking forward to seeing carpet on the stairs THE MOST.

And just in time for winter too.
Sometimes having a flood is GOOD.  Weird.

I already miss little Keera.  She was such a good little kid to have here... and Dante loved having her to play with.

I've been utterly evil with my food the past 6 days.  Today I'm getting back on track, I want to get another excellent blood test result in another 3 months. I just have to stop letting my moods get the better of me.

I still can't believe how fast I can completely fall off the wagon!

Mind over matter.  And a plan.  I'm sick of my vege stir fry's for my main meal.  Got to think of something else for a change.  Maybe an omelet?  Or steak 'n' egg?  Ideas anyone?  

Right, I better go and get dressed, can't have those blokes arrive and find me in me nightie eh?  lol

ONWARD...

Blokes have not arrived yet... so much for 8.30 am.  I could still be in my nightie after all.  

But, I'm sure they will arrive soon.... they told me yesterday that I was scary, so I'm sure they don't want to get me crabby!  lol


ABOVE:  Pretty eh?   Ha ha, it's the underlay.  Progress people!  Progress is good.


ABOVE:  "Where's fridge Grandma?".....  It will be nice to see it back in it's gap tonight.

IT'S FINALLY DONE.



 ABOVE: I'm really happy with how the vinyl matches the carpet, and the curve.  Last night the men taped out the curve, but took it really close to the bench, so I changed it and took it out heaps more.... much better.



ABOVE:  the left over carpet.  We are going to trim them to size and get them bound into mats/rugs.

You can never have too many rugs 'n' mats.

When the guys get home from work they have the job of moving all the furniture back into the room.

End of Day:  well such a lot got done today!  Thrilled to bits with the new flooring... and I'm looking forward to getting everything back in place and tidy tomorrow... just a few things to do really.
nite nite

  1. I'm happy to talk about meal options if you want to meet up sometime. It does help to get other ideas. If you get sick of what you're having then it makes falling off the wagon too easy. You need to love what you are eating!!

  4. God I hate it when Blogger eats my comment halfway through! Okay, take two.

    My doctor suggested I try the 5:2 diet. Heard of it? You fast for 2 days (I do Tuesday and Thursday). Much easier than trying to be good every day. You know you can do it for a 24 hour period. I also found this website with great recipes:

    http://www.goodtoknow.co.uk/recipes/538311/5-2-diet-meal-plans-what-to-eat-for-500-calorie-fast-days

    I have been doing it for three weeks, and while I'm not very good on my non- fast days I've lost 3kg so far! But ask your doctor first, in case it doesn't work with diabetes (although I think it's okay because another friends has done it!)

    1. I had heard of that 5:2 diet. I thought you had to fast for two consecutive days... if you don't it sure sounds easier to try! Thanks for the info.

  7. 5:2 diet is great for diabetes! I have a video link if you are interested where the doctor talks about how good fasting is for diabetes. Carpet looks great - how does it match with the older carpet... how have they done that. Fantastic that you could get the same carpet!!
