Yesterday I packed up the car with me the dog , a load of DIY stuff (I honestly should be a shareholder in b&q lol ) and a food parcel and headed on to the farm we are renovating . I say we but I'm doing all the hard graft while hubby sits in his Cosy office drinking tea and paying for it. Decided to try and Lift the awfull 70s brown paisly patterned carpet up off the kitchen floor which was glued down :( 8 hours of tugging pulling huffing puffing hammering scraping and chipping away started revealing a lovely flagstone original floor under that mouldy old carpet and a layer of green red & White lino tiles. I'm hoping it can be restored but there are a few big cracks .... May add to the charm of the old rustic oak farmhouse kitchen I'm installing :)

So my food diary was good as no temptations up here in the wilds of aberdeenshire

Day 4 PP
B- oatbran vanilla porridge
L- tuna quiche black coffee
D- chicken breasts cottage cheese black coffee

Your renovation project sounds amazing, just the sort of thing I would love to do (well supervise hubby doing ;)). Great that you can stick to your diet whilst there as you are only eating what you take, what a brilliant idea.
It's been really hard work .... I get my new oak kitchen installed in 2 weeks or so then we will hopefully have everything else that's being done this year completed :)


** Chief WITCH **
It all sounds fabulous Ellie (renovation AND diet). You're so lucky with your flagstone floor too! (and oak kitchen!).

When we stripped off manky carpet in the first bedroom we were doing up in our country place, beneath it we found... loads of newspapers stapled to the old floor boards to level the floor. I sat (im)patiently removing hundreds of staples for hours!

You must be pretty handy? I'm not, alas!
I'm not that handy but learning to be lol when I took up the manky sparebedroom carpet I discovered lots of newspaper too and lovely wooden floorboards untill I got it all up and some were very damaged to put paid to my dreams of a nice varnished wood floor lol with the help of my friend one evening we laid a laminate floor and it looked pretty good considering it was 2 girls that had never used a saw or laid laminate before lol
I have however had a sneaky peak under the newish front hall carpet and the floor is already sanded and varnished so I may rip the carpet up if the stair carpet is separate
