Ah yes, umm weekly updates - eh! That didn't last for long did it - still there wasn't much actually going on with the building and nothing at all with the card making, so there didn't seem much point blogging.
I really truly am finding it so difficult to get back into crafting or blogging, I try and then I fail and then I try again. Maybe I'll just give up until school goes back in September, then try properly.
Still I thought I'd do a short post to show you what the builder has been up to over the last two weeks, we haven't seen that much of him as the weather hasn't been great and he's got other jobs to go to. We also won't see him now until the back end of next week when, hopefully, the slates will go on, the doorway into the house will be knocked through and the windows will be in. In short the building will be finished - then it'll be onto internal work.
Though that's not all our building works finished - have I said that we got the permission to create a new floor above our garages? So that will become Peter's hobby room and the house extension will become Emily's bedroom. So from October more building chaos!
Anyway the work since my last post:
Peter says it looks like a little house all in it's own right - he thought if we blocked in the entrance from the kitchen into the new kitchen we could rent it out!!!
Ummm, nope!!!!!! I'm sooo looking forward to putting all of Emily's toys in her bedroom with her and getting our living room looking somewhat tidy again.
Strange how things change isn't it - Peter used to say, when Em was tiny, that he was looking forward to when she'd go play quietly in her bedroom and I'd say 'nope I'm not sending her into her room to play', now I'm like ' oh goodness Emily, please go play nice and quietly in your room for a bit and give mummy some peace'! Does that make me a bad mother? I do wonder sometimes if it does, but I also spend loads of time with her (she's never had a night away from me, we spend nearly every single day together, I drop her off and pick her up from school 90% of the time - she's also taken to sleeping badly again so it's a looong bedtime routine) so it is nice to be able to sit and appreciate the silence once in awhile.
So there we go, summary of the last fortnight for me:
cards - 0
building works - 5
days out - 2
See you in two weeks, probably.
