Good job !

For 15 years, we had an old, ugly laundry room that looked like this:

Things got a little better when the kitchen was redone: Claire and Momo took advantage of the presence of the workers to already change some pipes and put tiles on the floor. It was a first step.

This fall, Momo did everything else, and here’s the result.

Not bad, huh ? Of course, he wouldn’t have succeeded without my help and supervision !

Sweet thoughts to our friend Nicole whose sweet Dingle has just crossed the Rainbow Bridge to join Ficelle.

Chain reaction

You know what a chain reaction is ? No ? I’ll explain…

First, television has shown serious signs of weakness. As long as we had to change it, Claire and Momo thought they could take a bigger one. They realized that the current furniture would be too small.

Since the cheap cabinets in Momo’s office had already been patched up many times and they were no longer really closing, our humans thought they could be replaced by the cabinets in the living room. So they made that change. Our living room looked like this :

After a trip to Ikea, a few hours of putting shelves together, and a good series of swearing, our living room was back to normal. You could again pass from the cat tree (right) to the staircase (left). But we could no longer go on our beloved cabinets, as they were now in Momo’s office…

Momo then decided to catify his office ; instead, see what he did so that we could walk around our cabinets again :

Cool, huh ?

Ta-daaa !

That’s it ! After one month of works, our new kitchen is finally finished ! The table is just missing (it won’t arrive before three weeks) : imagine a white table with anthracite feet and four chairs (2 green, 2 orange), OK ?

Before – after :

What Claire and Momo prefer : the dishwasher ! (it’s the first time they have one)
What we prefer : the return to normalcy !

However, we live in slow motion, because we’re living exceptional weather conditions. Indeed, the period from April till July is the hottest that Switzerland has lived since 1864, and the driest since 1921 (source : MétéoSuisse). We hope it rains, and the temperatures come down !
