Not sure. I had every intention of writing a post last week. Every intention of writing one Monday and Tuesday but I have been tired from being super busy. You see the build has come on leaps and bounds. If anything we are now on a quiet time as we are waiting for the wooden… Continue reading Why so quiet?
It arrived! The round window is here and it is lovely... I think once it is in, it is going to make the space. I can't wait for the hand over of the studio. That looks like next week as we are waiting for the picture window. But it is looking so good already. That… Continue reading Through the round window
It is a strange world we live in, where you can log online and see news and "real" facts that can contradict each other. I do a fact-check by looking at scientific journals and such, but it takes time and if you look in the right place you can "alternative fact-check"... It is all confusing.… Continue reading Vaccine
If I were a pessimist I would say that the weather is worse because we have scaffolding up and tents around the dormers. But, luckily, I am not. Instead I am happy that everything is fine, noisy and annoying when you are trying to sleep but despite the weather the build is going well. I… Continue reading Another stormy night
I got to stop referring to it as a garage. The conversion is almost done. We are waiting on the windows and doors but the hand over of this phase should be at the end of next week. Then we have a three week wait for the wood frame (couldn't be avoided) and boom, the… Continue reading The Studio
So, I have pain. Not massive oh-my-god-I-can't-think pain, but background stuff. The kind that will wake you enough from a sleep to realise you are awake but only for a second, before you drop off again. The kind of pain you don't need to feed painkillers to. The kind you can live with. Photo by… Continue reading How old am I?
There is meant to be a storm coming in tomorrow. It is going to be a big one and we have weather warnings. Currently we have the two dormers stripped and the garage plastered but not 100% watertight as the doors and windows aren't in. Scaffolding on the outside of the house... In fact, this… Continue reading Plaster and plastic
Yesterday was sunny and I was feeling so much better. Finally, my body has started to absorb the iron and I have a little more energy. The pain has subsided and I was smiling. I should say that I'm still smiling today. We headed out to the veg patch in order to pop some plants… Continue reading Finally feeling a little better
The garage, I must stop calling it that... The studio is now boarded out and has the electric wiring for the plugs and piping for the radiator. It is all looking pretty good. The door will eventually open into the kitchen. Plastering in there starts tomorrow and then we are going to start sorting out… Continue reading The build is coming along
I'm thinking that spring is in the air. There is a scent to it that makes me want to plant and dig and get closer to nature. Around where we live, we are blessed with a couple of acres out the back, common land that it has been left fallow, with just some horses on… Continue reading Sun
