Finito, Benito!

At long, long last, the saga of the Highgate flat is at an end.

It is actually finished.





Only the carpets to go in on Wednesday, and Tony Snr to come round and use up the last of the really expensive mosaic tiles in the kitchen and bathroom in a clever way that Jackie has thought of.......

Other than that, it's done.

Six months and about £20,000 later, the 're-wire and making good' that morphed into the rebuild from hell, is actually done.

The only bits of it original to December 2011 are the lavatory bowl and cistern, the pedestal and sink in the bathroom, and the floorboards.

Everything else is new.

Anyone seen 'The Money Pit' with Tom Hanks and Shelley Long? An eighties remake of an earlier film, but good nonetheless.

Been there, done that, got the tee-shirt...........

Anyone wanting to rent a lovely studio flat in Highgate, please get in touch via my email! (See the address on the sidebar!)

I am now going to sleep.

For a week.


  1. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!! Done. Well, done. Finished, well finished.

    You may be too tired to celebrate so Boots and I will skip a celebratory rigadoon for you both.

  2. Opens one eye, sleepily....

    "Thanks Bones!"
