The house renovation is moving along at pace now. Still waiting for the new stairs to be delivered. A few bits of stupidness by the plasterer. Big long electrical cable that came out of the floor, is so long it was wrapped around a door handle by one of the builders to keep it from being trodden on. Stupid plasterer, plasters the wall without the cable behind it? Duh? and WTF??? Seriously, you have to watch every damned thing they do. They will have to fix it, it is the only light in that area. Mucho, miffed off with that! More plaster dust as they channel out for that. Not happy can you tell???!???
In good news though, we decided along time ago, as we will more than likely not stay in this house, we will not use the Greek marble slabs we ordered for the shower enclosure or the mother of pearl tiles which I adore, they can continue to live at my Brother's workshop until needed. We have gone with bog standard white. Cant go wrong. What is the good news? Whilst looking at the terms and conditions for Topps Tiles, it mentions the use of Tesco vouchers. Well we have quite a few Tesco points vouchers. Googled it and sure enough you could get Tesco vouchers to pay. And not only that, on the Tescos website, you could triple the amount of the face value. TRIPLE. Read that TRIPLE THE VALUE. What?
I cashed those vouchers in quick smart and whilst we waited for the new ones to arrive, ordered the tiles in store. When we went to pick them up they didnt bat an eyelid that we were paying for the wall and floor tiles with vouchers. And guess what? It made the tiles free to us. We didnt pay a penny. Seeing as I would only have squandered those original vouchers on chocolate or something extra for our Christmas dinner, this way I have use of them every day. Super duper right. Free is free. Yes, I earnt the vouchers through buying food at Tesco's, but I have to buy food and I have got something out of it. Very pleased. Very very pleased.
Wombled a few more things from the skip and therefore saved them from land fill. Some really large lengths of timber 6x4 over 2 metres long (and I know I have just mixed metric with imperial lengths). These will be used for a new extension to the wood store. Found 2 rubble bags with off cuts from the stud walls, perfect for the wood stove.
Waste not, want not.
p.s. I love the clapping Gif. :) I know people dont like them but I squealed and clapped when I found out they were tripled! Tripled. I am tickled with that.
