So you may remember me talking about the building work that we are having done at the moment…well it’s still an on going mission! Unfortunately, due to a spate of bad weather, my dreams of it all being finished for Christmas are long gone. Who knew that cement had an attitude problem and would only do it’s job under certain conditions!
We also hit some other snags; foundations had to be dug much deeper than anticipated, which meant more concrete (still with an attitude!), deliveries of materials not arriving when they should, skip men not coming to collect the rubble on time, wind, rain, frost – you name it, we seemed to have it.
However slowly but surely we finally saw progress…the floor went down. Baby and I had great fun watching the men ankle deep in cement smoothing it out, then covering it up (got to treat that concrete right!).
The bricks arrived and the walls started going up quite quickly!
Then all of a sudden the walls were finished and we got roof rafters! Next we wait for the roofing chaps to come and fix the roof, then we can add doors and windows – oh I can’t wait!
It’s never easy having any sort of work done to your house or garden, and I am thoroughly sick of the mess but I can now start to visualise in my mind how it’s going to look and how I’m going to lay everything out – I can’t wait!
Until next time; keep calm and crochet on my friends xx
