I find they are not the same thing. Two very different beasts, two different characters. One curious and delighted, and the other bitter and sharp. Life: It has stopped raining! (delightfully running to the window)Stress: (moves it's body a little and sniffs in disdain) Not for long. (it points at a cloud moving toward them,… Continue reading Stress and life
Goodness has it been a month since I posted? The build and life has been getting in the way and the past month has been a little stressful. Mostly due to family emergencies and such. All is okay now though and I have my fingers crossed that it stays that way. The build has been… Continue reading Time flies!
One minute we had nothing but a concrete pad then... Well, I could describe it but I think I'll let the pictures speak. Oh, and it only took them 3 and a half days. Magic! The first panel goes up... Is that the new front door? We have rafters... Front door from the outside with… Continue reading Magic!
The wonderful people at Bird's Hill have come through and we are finally warm! I kid you not, but after a month and a half of no heating and just a front room fire, I could cry. I was also worried about the old (1960s-1970s) gas fire... We have no more headaches and I feel… Continue reading We have fire!
Honestly, what is with the weather? Why is it so damn cold? Okay, so it is April and yesterday we had hail... This does mean that I am checking the plants outside daily. The broad beans are just above the soil and the plum is in full blossom. The fact that it is sitting in… Continue reading Spring? Or is that snow?

But today there are smiles. You see the large cherry picker and frames, with possibly a crane, would not… Continue reading Busy today
No, really... I sat down the other day and realised that the Phd will be complete by Christmas and the business will be back in full production, so after a huge holiday, I need some Christmas cards. I will be producing some by traditional methods but with the build going on I am finding it… Continue reading In my corner it is Christmas
It has been busy and not busy. The dormers are complete and the second fix for the studio is going in today but the fella and I have been a little out of sorts. Headaches and pains and not feeling right. I thought it was the cold but then I started to wander if it… Continue reading How it is all going…
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
