The winter has gone now, (although there are some days I wonder) but on the whole we are getting some brighter and some hotter days. The sun is so nice touching the skin.
I have stitched, and found quilting over the winter months, and there are an awful amount of unfinished projects in my work basket. I had been beavering along on them hoping to be in my own home for this Christmas. That is not to be, but there is a method in my madness as I am going to build. I have bought land, and my plans are now with the Council awaiting a building consent. They have promised it before Christmas, which we all know is just around the corner.
So here am I putting the sold sign on the board....
It is in a lovely new area, a cul de sac which will be quieter and of course safe for the boys. The fur boys that is! I love my plans, and had them drawn up by the chap who had done all the previous houses that had been built. I am super chuffed to say the least, and just cannot wait to get into it, around Easter - give or take at this stage.
The girls are both good, and Anna and Aimee came and had a weekend with me recently, then a few weeks later Lauren and Andy came up too for a couple of days. Yes, they are back from Australia for a good year it seems, both are going back to school, Lauren to finish her degree and Andy to do something completley new.
So just to let you know that I am around, are doing ok (most days) and are looking forward.
