Update on kitchen DIY

We have made a bit progress on the kitchen.
Vix from upstairs did some magic behind the radiator and the boiler and got the paper off from the hard to reach places.
Alan from Time Exchange and his South Walian pal arrived with rolls of sandpaper and sanded the walls.
On Sunday we have to move the fridge so the landlord's damp man can look at the rising damp.
Then, once he has dealt with that, we can wash the walls with sugar soap, apply a coat of ECOS stabilising solution (this stops old plaster deteriorating and breaking up when you paint it and allows the paint to go on smoothly, its a bit like a clear undercoat),
then 2 coats of paint will finish the job!
Here's what it looks like now...
