My Kitchen Renovation – Part 4 – Tiling The Walls

    As I’d had so much success tiling my kitchen’s floor, I decided to get my tiles from Tile Mountain again. They were great quality, well priced and delivery was fast and all of the tiles arrived in A1 condition.

Timeline – Card Game Review

My friends and I are regulars at our local pub for their weekly quiz. We can’t quite decide on our team name: we’ve had “Spiders from Mars”, “Badgers not Hedgehogs” and “Fantastic Four” to name but a few… I’m sure one of these days we will find one we want to stick with.
