Things are going along at a bit of a snails pace with the bathroom renovation at the moment! I am waiting on the toilet and taps to be fitted Monday and hopefully the glass shower frame by the end of the week. Then we have to paint and finish the tiled splash back. I had my brother here last week doing all the tiling and we are at least now showering at home. My Dad is coming to help me finish off next weekend. I am so lucky to have two builders in the family! I have been quite patient about the whole thing with the trades seen as I decided to do it with the click of my fingers I can't be too picky! I am very grateful for everyone that has worked on it so far with such short notice.

As things came to a standstill with the bathroom I had a little shopping spree and purchased a few lovely items for my home. I do have expensive taste most of the time hence the lamp, isn't it gorgeous? However sometimes I stumble across a complete bargain like these little black pieces of furniture I found at The Reject Shop! I don't mind saying that they will fit into my house nicely! I have just started to introduce some black into my home... I have always been a white person, so I am a bit out of my comfort zone, hope I can pull it off!
Here is what I bought... don't take too much notice of the styling as I haven't got around to that yet.

Hope everyone is enjoying the school holidays. We are down one week with one to go... I am going to be kid free next week as the kids are off to grandparents while I work, I am looking forward to the evenings being quiet and relaxing!!
