Eight Weeks!

That's how long it's taken to get our new oven handle replaced and our kitchen wiring finished off.

The oven handle was delivered with a dent in it, so I asked for a replacement one. I rang last week to find out what was taking so long and it turns out the guy I was dealing with doesn't work at the store any more. I spoke to someone else at the store and ended up having a new oven handle fitted in the middle of this week.

I also got sick of being put off by the electrician who started our kitchen wiring eight weeks ago. He didn't return my phone call earlier in the week, so last night I rang another electrician, who came out this afternoon and finished off all the above-bench powerpoints, and the powerpoints for the dishwasher, rangehood and oven. So we've had a new oven sitting in our kitchen for eight weeks with a bent handle and no power. I'm so looking forward to using it this weekend! And now we can get the rangehood installed and have the splashback done. Yay!

Excellent Charlotte - you won't know yourself once its all working. Our kitchen was all installed a few weeks ago and I am loving it!!! Just needs a coat of paoint and floor to be sanded and polished but other than that, its finished and we are wondering why we didn't do it years ago :)
