Happy New Year! Can you believe it's 2013 already?
The holiday season passed with a little bit of an anti-climax for us as we had hoped to be in our new home for Christmas. I had visions a me in a beautiful flaring dress carrying a big golden turkey to our fantastic dining room all dressed in Christmas finery but as you can see from the picture's posted so far that plan went very wrong. 

It wasn't the only thing that went against the plan, since the heating has now been off for a long time the fan decided it didn't feel like working anymore, without heating the plasterering that has been done was taking longer to dry, carpets that have been laid aren't relaxing (they'll need to be stretched when relaxed) and it's really not fun to work in temperatures below 7c.  To add insult to injury the beautiful silver wallpaper we loved for our guest room just did not want to stick to the wall, there were bubbles (although bubbles is an understatement) and edges curled, if you could tame the edges then there was a very visable white joins on each and every piece so it had to come off and now we are painting instead.
sneaky peak at the bathroom.

So today when life after New Year's returns to normal we waited for the sun to come up (thank you insomnia) so that we could go once more unto the breach armed with paint rollers and watered down elmusion to first coat the bathroom ceiling and today finally I feel like I achieved something.

No this isn't the latest trend in maniicure's
Oh yeah and a little tip for the future....paint the ceiling before the lights go in because those things are almost impossible to get out and by the end of the day I feel like I've undergone a mild form of bamboo fingernail torture.
