OMG, where have the last two weeks disappeared to?
This year is flying by at a seriously alarming rate.
I had several blog posts planned, but of course, life got in the way.
So…just what have I been up to?
Well, there was a few days of really gorgeous spring weather here in Victoria, so I spent them outside in the garden doing some pruning and weeding and starting to build a little yard out front of the shed. I wanted to make a little play yard so the kids have an enclosed space to play in, because our main yard is pretty big and includes the building site and lots of other kid-un-friendly stuff, and Miss Scout is a bit of an adventurer and if I take my eyes off her, for even a second, she’s very likely to nick off down to the building site or up the paddock to visit the goats! Also, we have a new four-legged family member joining us soon…
Can’t wait to go pick up our gorgeous fluffy girl, only a few more weeks
There’s also been a few more trips to the dentist (exciting I know, but I’m now making up for too many years of avoiding the dentist. There’s a whole lot of work that needs doing now before it gets any worse! Including finishing off the seemingly never-ending root canal that’s been going on for months!)
Kane has been making some good progress on the house, and we’ve also had a bricklayer making the fireplace, a renderer doing some of the outside walls, Kane’s dad doing some internal walls, and my uncle coming up the help with an assortment of odd jobs that we just haven’t had time to get to.
The house is starting to look really awesome.
I’m starting to get really excited now, it’s finally (after 3 1/2 years!) starting to feel real.
After so many set backs and dramas there was plenty of times I just thought “we’re never going to be able to do this” Now that we’ve come this far, the end is not quite in sight yet, but I’m feeling a lot more confident that we will actually be living in this house one day, that’s not just some far off dream but that it really will happen.
And then add to that some christmas shopping, running around picking up building materials, a bit of a “down” patch last week, and just general day-to-day stuff and somehow it’s been two weeks since I last stopped by this blog…
Anyway, I made it back here eventually
Do you find “life” getting in the way of things you wanted to do? How do you manage your time?
