The renovation really seems to have taken over our lives lately. I am continually cancelling on friends and our social life has diminished a lot and I think will continue to do so for at least another month.
We are nearly there but the builders are six weeks over contract and still going. They are hoping to be out of here by mid next week, that will be major cause for celebration.
Unfortunately once the builders are finished we still have a lot to do which will impact on our weekends for the next little while - cleaning, painting, painting, painting and getting the floorboards sanded and polished, plus carpets put in the two new bedrooms. Then there is all the stuff that we have decided to do on the outside of the house ourselves - painting, replacing weatherboard and putting in new base boards. Sigh!!
I am a little over it and this is why I haven't been online much lately either.
On the positive side I am loving the new space - I often sit in these cane chairs, coffee in hand and watch my kids outside jumping on the trampoline. And even better news I have been told I can use our new bath from tonight!
