Spot the difference

AFTER
Can you spot the difference between these two pictures? The difference being a fixture in the house..... Yes, I have a new dishwasher. A Mothers Day pressie and early birthday pressie. Darling Husband (DH) spent the afternoon bashing a hole in the wall and making a total mess (as they do) so that he could fit it. There was no dishwasher recess allowed, so we had to find a good spot. We chose the wall, which used to be a doorway, but had been filled in by the previous owners. Behind that wall is a second kitchen with a bank of drawers backing onto the wall, which will house the new dishwasher. It just needs to have a surround to finish it off and plumbing and power run to it and then I won't be washing dishes no more!! How exciting is that. Well, I'm excited. Most of my family and friends have dishwashers; so now it's my turn. And I also got a new kettle, so I've been totally spoilt!!!



BEFORE



















On a different note: I've been doing lots of stampin' this week, just haven't been taking pictures. (sorry) I've been busy making cards for my sample box using the different stamp sets that I own. I have a SU demo for about 15 ladies on Monday night, so I've been preparing for that, deciding which cards to demo etc. Unfortunately today, I came down with an awful migraine, so after taking some pills, I've been feeling like a zombie all day, leaving me with no energy to stamp!! At least I'm half organised; the rest will happen on Monday, I hope.

Well, to the all the mothers out there, have a wonderful and special Mothers Day and enjoy being spoilt by your loved ones.
