MAGPIE'S MUMBLINGS

A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Oh my aching.....

.....feel free to insert whatever  bone or muscle of your choosing.

The floors  are pretty much done other than a bit of trim and some caulking  in  the  bathroom.  And I'm pretty much  done in!  Jack and I had a decent system...I parked myself on the floor and stayed there doing the laying of the tiles and grouting  and Jack did the cutting and acted as a good go-fer.  My knees aren't good so it was much easier to just stay put...altho  I did end up with a bruised butt cheek   (I know...,too much information!).

I took a couple of pictures  so you can see (and  no....NOT of my aforementioned  bruise...this is not an X rated blog!).


The picture quality  isn't great  but still don't have my main computer  back from repairs.

I haven't  forgotten  your quotes of the day  but it's  a tad difficult  to do with the tablet.  I promise they will return!

Well done Mary Anne! The flooring looks great! You'll have to have a nice long soak in the tub with some relaxing bath bubbles to ease the aching joints! Don't over do it!! Christine x

That kind of work is lovely when it's done, and you resolve that you won't do it again!

Looking good! Hope you recover fast. I agree with Christine, a hot bath would ease the aches.

Lovely! Terry and I work well together like that. We used to get so much done. Now he says the two of us make the one of him he used to be. I say that's just growing old together. Yes, my knees aren't too good anymore too. Makes it really hard to get up. I have taken to sitting on a low to the floor step stool when I have to work on the floor or ground. (I always wash the kitchen floor on my hands and knees...now hands and stool.

You have me thinking that we need new carpet on the tub part of the bathroom. I'm going shopping for it on the next rainy day.
xx, Carol

Impressive! Like you, life has lead me away from blogging recently so it's been lovely to have had the time to catch up. Congratulations your new grandson, he looks a poppet and worth a mega drive across Canada for! Who knew you were such a dab hand as a tradie?! Way to go!

Looking good! It's hard work to lay tiles, we did our house too and my job was to do the grouting!
Hope you have a speedy recovery.

Great achievement. I'm happy with just getting down and crawling back up.
Nothing better than a job well done and looking at it anew for a few days.
