So my wonderful father was over at 11 this morning and we started to Tile the ensuite.. Should prove to be fun as he was only here for 3 hours or so and we got a fair bit done, tomorrow will be more cutting of tile and fine tuning everything.. Hopefully we can be grouting wednesday πŸ™‚

Rael got the living room ceiling painted as well as the bathroom ceiling, first house I have been in without a white ceiling and it looks great – will post some pics tomorrow

Installing the dining room lamp was the fun part.. So we get the lighting stuff from ikea and I have installed ceiling lights before and it isn’t a biggie. I mean turn the breaker off who cares, there is no danger.. Well Ikea + 1979 wiring is fun.. The wire colors in our ceiling are Red Black and Biege, the Ikea wires are Black, White and Green/white.Β  In the end the White went to the red, the black went to the beige and the green was just the ground so it got screwed to the ceiling mount.Β  The really fun part was by the time we figured out which wires went where the sun was down and I couldn’t see which breaker switch to throw to turn off the lights, so I just ended up throwing a bunch and hoped for the best πŸ™‚Β  Still alive so it turned out pretty good πŸ™‚

Now I am settling in wth a nice pot of Coffee, a few soundtracks(Ghost in the Shell, Gears of War2, and Mass Effect) and I am ready for my 10 hour work day to begin πŸ™‚Β  Already pumped out an article, so far so good πŸ™‚Β  I just have to wait for my dark mistress caffeine to really start kicking my ass into high gear πŸ™‚
