What Faulty CARPET !!!!

Breathe !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

just keep calm

Friday / mid-morning : Excited to see Carpet layers on site busy installing underlay..lots of noise ( good there working ! ) I take another quick look ( loving the colour) I leave to collect the last bits and pieces for my Electrician ..the carpet is cut and layout ready to be installed ~ see above picture.

Noon/ish : quick trip to lighting store...(O.K detour to McDonald's ~ loving their frozen coke at the moment and another detour to Sports Store ~ I really near some new gym gear!!!

Friday / afternoon : Arrived back to site NO NOISE ( they cannot be finished already ?)
all Carpet Layers and Carpet Salesman are huddled around carpet in powwow ~ not a good sign...

conclusion ~ FAULTY CARPET...

All credit to the Carpet Salesman ~ super professional, had the Carpet Company on the phone there and then...replaced and reordered new carpet without even stressing me out...

thank you!!!

However because the carpet wasn't installed, the Cleaner could not clean, the Plantation Blind Company cannot install my shutters, the delivery's I had arranged of this week will have to wait and my busy week of styling, Real Estate Agents and photos has now become not so busy....

But the Landscaper's are doing a wonderful JOP outside...there is green everywhere

xox Cate ~ slightly stressed...
but having a girlie lunch day on Friday, feeling better all ready !!


  1. Oh my gosh, it's like the movies Cate! I love your pic ... keep calm carry on! Ahhh girlie lunch will fix everything!

  8. Hi Cate

    Chin up... you're almost there

  9. Nice to hear that your Carpet guys were so honest Cate. We had the worst experience with one about 3 years ago. I honestly thought MOTH was going to shoot a clot off during a very 'heated' conversation with him one day. I recall the words crook, conman, sue & withhold payment being used frequently. I'm sure this minor glitch won't stop you Miss Unstopppable!
