The Re-Fit Begins
This was the scene from the café as we began our work yesterday morning, the snow didn't really match the forecaster's predictions for us on Mersea but as we listened to the news on the radio of big falls around other parts of the country we were quite pleased not to be completely snowbound as we were waiting for the lorry to deliver our brand new Falcon Dominator.
First on the list was ripping out all the old worn out work surface, flooring and equipment in preparation for the new stuff. This turned out to be quite cathartic in preparation for a new year, also quite a lot of it is now five years old and very tired, talking of five years older and very tired...
No sooner had we got shot of the old stuff then Andy started tiling for all he was worth
and our Holly got busy with a paintbrush too!
as for tomorrow, we've simply loads more to do, a new floor in the loo, varnish the counter, plumb in the sink, more painting, assemble the new furniture, the list seems endless and I'm very tired, so I'm off to bed to count a few sheep and contemplate my new temporary vocation as a shopfitter!
