haldoor: Kaige and I like to jump off bridges one after the other; not always in the same order (amusement-qi)
Yesterday, I met [livejournal.com profile] alicambs, who is a new LJ friend. We had a really nice afternoon chatting about this and that, including non-slashy things, and we seem to have quite a lot in common. She is really nice - she and her family have just moved here from the UK - and we probably could have talked for hours more! Thanks again, Ali - it was a really fun way to while away a rainy Saturday! I met her husband and son too, which was lovely, and she trusted me enough to loan me her dvd of 'Ultraviolet', which was a short British TV series made in the late eighties. Hubby and I (he fell asleep, typical!) watched an episode last night - couldn't resist! - and really liked it. Jack Davenport stars and Baby!Stephen Moyer is in it briefly too - he's so cute at 20 (ish)! Haha. Very well-done and I am really looking forward to watching the rest. Borrowing it is a good excuse to get back together too - we're hoping to maybe have dinner together (with hubbies in tow) before they have to move out of the place they're renting.

In other news, the weather is still lousy (come on rainmaker, we've had our share for this winter!!!), I'm still on dial-up speed (so apologies especially to the CSI RPG people, but it's making me crazy and my brain just isn't there. I will catch up after the 13th though), and work continues to keep me busy.

Oh! We did have a couple of builders round yesterday - we've been thinking about adding on to our house instead of moving to somewhere bigger - and we liked these guys. They are going to arrange a meeting with an architetural draughtsman (simple job; doesn't really need an architect), and hopefully... hopefully, we might start to move on this. We currently have a fairly standary Kiwi three bedroom house, and we hope to add on another bedroom, a second bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe at one end of the house, with possibly a garage or carport, and a covered deck off our lounge at the other end. I'd like to hope that we might actually stop procrastinating, and have something happening by the summer!

Today, we've started slowly... had a cuppa in bed and Hubby's watching some programme about male grooming (!) while I do this. My intention is to get on with finally finishing my last luau fic! However, breakfast might be in order first! Oh, and the sun is actually shining... we'll see how long that lasts! ;-)

Oh, I just know everyone's going to be so thrilled to see the photos of my bathroom! Yeah!

This is what it used to look like:

Yes, that is two pictures together, {and the gorgeous (ha!) patterned wallpaper with the brown edging was my old laundry - it's already been done and is now marigold with white edging (FYI)} and the second pic is so you can see the old "box" shower. UnFortunately it's the only one I have of it.

And now for something completely different... )

I don't know, but it seemed kinda amusing, so I'm sharing:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

And yes, I am still going to share pics of the new bathroom with you, but I wanted to scan a photo or two of the "old" bathroom for comparison (it's always nice to see how much things have improved, right?), and up til yesterday my scanner had this silly idea that it was some kind of installer and NOT a scanner. But *grin*, I've been smart enough to use the "restore" function on the computer, and that means I made it work! WOO! Go, me! Anyway, now all I have to do is dig out the old photos...

Might even tell you what we've been doing apart from bathroom remodelling, if I get around to it, too. Lucky, lucky you.

Yes, yes, it's me. I am still alive, in case you wondered. God knows where I've been, fantasising about living in Karl's backyard perhaps. No, actually, I think it was Josh's pocket... oh what the...?

Yes, obviously the Magic Midnight button has been pressed. (only 108 minutes to go til I hit it again). Yeah, right.

HAPPY EASTER! well, it still makes me laugh, but then I'm weird, or so they say. This, I mean:

Okay, what did I need to tell you? *scratches head* )

Sold more Guide biscuits, had the second bathroom contractor come and explain his quote (double the first quote, *sigh*) and am more exhausted than ever. What's with that?

On the plus side... Kat sent heaps of music last night *dances*, watched "Best in Show" last night too (gotta love those mockumentaries, and the ever-wonderful Parker Posey), and I get to sleep in tomorrow.
