Default Flooring

Hi

I have spent the whole afternoon and an hour in the evening trying to do the flooring in my DH kitchen, first attempt mind you! Well silly me bought the tiled sheet with a border Little did I know that it was going to be worse than a jig-saw puzzle to cut out and match up the border. Eventually 4 hours later I did it.

Next time I will get a tiled floor without a border or buy the tiny mini tiles and lay them one by one.

I'm going to now sit down (cos my knees are so sore from kneeling all afternoon).

Rant over.

thanks for listening!

So ... after a nightmare with the flooring I finally got the kitchen walls papered. That was a much simpler task.
