houston, we have a floor
The floor looks like terra cotta tiles but is actually laminate flooring from the Parador Stone-Click series. It only took Mr M a couple of hours to install and looks like it will be very easy-care.
The other wood-patterned board is left over from the laminate we have installed throughout the rest of the ground floor.
Oh yes, and Mr. M asked me to make sure to take a picture of this nifty blue precision instrument that he designeded himself and had some colleagues at work make for him when we moved in here and had to install a bunch of new flooring. I'm not exactly sure what this thing does, but it seems to work.
And we have lights (you know, from that Swedish place) that could be mistaken for UFOs but look much more cheerful when they're on.
While we're at it, we also have...
...snow! For the first time this year, and...
...sushi! For tonight's no-cook dinner.
If all goes well we should be basking in the glow of our new kitchen by tomorrow night.
