We’re back !

This post is also available in : French German Italian

The school year ended well, and the children are finally on holidays since Friday noon. As dean, Claire still has some work at the management office, but the working rhythm is much less stressful than during June.

At the moment, we’re camping at home : the renovation work of the kitchen has started, as well as the pose of stone floor in the laundry.

Here is the state of our kitchen at present :

And here is our temporary lounge – dining room :

And our temporary kitchen (in other words : the garage) :

The rest of the house looks like this :

We can tell you that we’re living in the garden !

At the end of May, we won a giveaway at our friends of Katzenworld thanks to their partner 4cats. The package arrived in the middle of June, but we warned Marc-André that Claire’s thumbs were unavailable until July.

We had thus finally the permission to open the package, but we have to wait to unpack the toys because the house is full of dust everywhere.

We look forward to playing with all these catnip or valerian toys ! Thanks to all our friends of Katzenworld, we’ll send you photos, promise !

    Looks like chaos at your place 😉
    Good thing it is Summer and camping out in other parts of the house is possible.
    Bet it will look pawsome when all is done 🙂
    Congrats on the win too. Those toys look like lots of fun!

    I hope the remodel goes well. Mum has never done work upstairs, just the dungeon work a few years ago. That was stressful enuf for all of us. At least you have a place to keep foods and do a bit of cooking.

    What a great package!

    It’s nice you can spend a lot of time in teh garden when the work is happening. #1 says she thinks the mess is probably driving Claire crazy!

    Your momma and papa will be in good hands having you around to supurr-vise their kitchen purr-oject! You can make sure they don’t go over budget and that $$$ are set aside in reserve for nip and premium kitty treats! Winks!

    We hope the remodeling goes quickly and well. So you are able to get stuff back in order as soon as possible. Those toys look like they will be a lot of fun for someone when they are opened. Thanks for the share and welcome back. Have a great day.

    Yippee for end of school, well, almost! Yikes, your kitchen! Our Mom likes your blocks. Hope the dust won’t continue for too much longer! That catnip egg looks like so much fun!

    I hope you get to enjoy your new toys soon. I think some of them could go out in the garden with you.
    My Mom & Dad would like to do some renovation in the kitchen and bathrooms, but they don’t want to live through it and neither do I. Thankfully, everything works, it’s just dated. You are all very brave for doing a renovation that involves your kitchen.
