"Like a Fox in a Hen House!"

On returning from the supermarket a couple of weekends ago, this is the sight that greeted me in the kitchen! I'd only asked for the new oven to be plugged in!

6 hours later we'd stripped the whole wall! Unfortunately the laminate layer of 70 years of wallpaper and paint was surprisingly adhesive in places. On the plus side I've gained half an inch of kitchen!

The title comes from my husband's exasperation at my Dad! He really is like that in a place that needs a little renovation - I think we were lucky to escape with the walls still standing! Dad starts on the bathroom next weekend...
