Feeling very guilty about my booooorrrring posts of late, and unfortunately for you guys this will be no exception. Because if the weather holds we are hosting a 6th birthday party for 40 fairy girls tomorrow at the park and I have some things to do.
Buuuttt I couldn't resist sharing these..................
We have stairs
and many gorgeou white walls, so new looking and stunning, seriously stunning. The ceilings look higher and the arches taller, it is amazing. 138 tubes of stopgap though!!!
The painting on the exterior is nearly complete. The grey is slightly different to how I thought it would look but happy to have a house that doesn't look as derelict. Love the white beams in the verandah!!
Tiling is nearly complete so I will post some progress shots on Friday.
This week my terrific two turned 4 years old. I am not good at cake decorating, but Octonauts was the request so my husband and I set to work, and this is the final product. Probably my best cake to date.
This is an 'Octopod' which unless you have a 2-5yr old you would never have heard of :)
and this is Kwasi!! Not too bad huh.
Then this is my excuse for not blogging as much as I should be.
Do you watch Grand Designs??
What happens when they build a one bedroom adult masterpiece,
they always fall pregnant?
So what about when you build a 4 bedroom house, with 3 children already??
So we decided to do our final IVF whilst the house was being done. I mean if it is good enough for Grand Designs it must be good enough for us.
And it was!!!
Blogger hates me today and I can't turn the pic to show you bubba number 4 for us!!
The morning sickness, and exhaustion have been horrid. Plus managing all the small aspects of the build.
But we are close, and very happy!!
So building work still to go
*ballustrades on the North corner
* rear and front stairs
* repair kitchen floor (additional cost)
Tiling work starts Monday
Bathroom fit-out next week
and masses of interior painting.
Then work for us is the under floor insulation when they are finished, and shutters on the large front windows, plus window dressings for energy efficiency stars!!
We are hoping to be looking at moving in mid-September, fingers crossed!!
