Repairs: Day 1 and a Tease

A little update for my regular readers. As you know 10 days ago my apartment was flooded by a broken pool pipe which is 2 floors above me.

Today the repairs (done by the building owner) began. The parquet floor in my bedroom was removed and my carpets were cleaned professionally.  I had to remove everything from my bedroom (except the bed). So now I am sleeping on my mattress on the floor of the living room. There is furniture everywhere. Its not easy feeling so cramped but I am actually really excited…feels like a free renovation. Here is a pic of the floor today…

So life is a bit crazy right now. I also bought yesterday my plane ticket for my summer holiday…in 3 weeks I am out of here. And lots of exciting things are coming shortly here on the blog.

  • Wednesday I will have an exclusive review of a very special new store opening on the same day I will post.
  • Keep an eye out at the end of the week for an article I am writing for the Daring Kitchen.
  • A really great review of a restaurant in Toronto.
  • Reviews…great stuff: a ceramic knife, an expresso machine and nice ethnic flavored vinaigrettes.
  • And a tease picture below about a really amazing outing I had with a fellow Montreal food blogger, Foodessa.

    As someone who lives on a first floor condo, I shudder to think about something like that. Best of luck for a quick fix.

    Have a wonderful holiday.

    Very nice you got to hang out with Claudia.

    Cheers!

  • I can’t believe that you managed to beat me to it.
    How ‘Veloce’ are you? And…when, within the cracks of messy renos…did you have a chance to create such an original cannoli!
    If, it’s half as yummy as it looks…you’ve made the canolli shells proud!!!
    Great job…and here’s hoping that your cleanup goes as smoothly as that Ricotta;o)
    BTW…when you have a chance…You’ve been added to my APPRECIATION page.
    Ciao for now…and flavourful wishes, Claudia

  • Oh course I got them done Claudia…I NEEDED a treat with the mess at home he he. Thank you so much for the shells again.
