REPAINTING AND RENOVATIONS

I suppose that everybody amongst you had to repaint or renovate your house or flat. Since Monday Mr. G. and I sit in a big mess because we have all rooms in our house repainted.

The first day the cats disappeared in all directions because there were two human invaders in their territory who on the top made terrible noises with strange machines. The only one who wasn't bothered by their presence was cat Arthur who had to supervise the whole repainting.

Mr. G. doesn't know where to put himself and moved downstaires into the guest room, while I am still sitting in my room which meanwhile contains the paintings of which I had cleaned the frames. And you can imagine around 20 cats of all sizes and sorts from ceramic to wood which are piled up on the Sofa in Mr. G. office. Twice he said "hello" to a white ceramic cat which looks like Arthur and wondered that the cat didn't answer.



That's like it looks now in the whole house, we eat our supper on the sofa in front of the TV from which we remove the bedlinen which covers it during the day. Isn't it cosy ?

When this is over I think I need a renovation !

Just think how pleased you will be when it's done. I hope you show us :)

Oh ROFL at Mr G greeting the white cat! Remember I did that with the white cat in the snow outside your house. My cats also always run away when ANYONE strange comes into the house. And beware if they make strange noises! It's always SO unpside down when you renovate. Awful but lovely afterwards. You will need a rest. Look forward to seeing it all done. (((hugs))) Jo

Tomorrow I am having my carpets cleaned. I have been told this cleaner can remove hairball stains, not sure about that but I know my 2 girls will not enjoy the drama.
I think having painters in will be so much worse, I don't think I could face it. You are very brave.

We need to repaint. I keep threatening to get a professional in which evokes protests but no action - yet. Good luck - it will be lovely when it's finished and everything is tidy again :-)

It's always such a big job to paint the house. But it has ro be done every now and then.

Sue said...

We need to paint, too, and I keep avoiding it for all the reasons you mention.

I would love the result, though, so I'm going to try to follow your example. Soon.

(Then we can both get ourselves renovated...)

;)

It's so nice to have someone else do the painting if you can. It will look so nice when you're done.

After that you'll be so glad like in a palace! Cats must wait after un retour à la normale autant que vous!

Jackie said...

You'll need a 'makeover' after your 'do-over' lol that's funny .

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

Pain in the neck while you are doing it though!

We are renovating our master bath beginning in March, and will have to move into the guest room for a while. I know our two dog children will be very confused.
I love your red wall!

Jenny said...

I had to laugh out loud about your husband trying to talk to your ceramic cat!

You are a brave, brave girl!

I think I would have to move into a hotel these days...I think my pioneer tendencies have disappeared as I've gotten older.

Thanks for a fun stop on our little journey through Alphabe-Thursday's letter "R".

You made me smile!

A+

ooo....That's so hard while everything is stirred up. But so wonderful when it's all complete!
When strangers invade our house, Oliver (black and white)buries himself in our bed under the covers, something he never does otherwise. Once I found him deep in the closet, snuggled as tightly as he could into a shoebox.
