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
We are just getting the first walls appearing on site. Covid, I was hoping it wouldn't impact us too much, looks like it will be making the build a little difficult as there is a wait on the wooden framing. But it isn't too long and there is plenty to do around the site so… Continue reading Walls

Not mental blocks or writing blocks but real blocks. They have arrived so the foundations are going in... So exciting! Can't believe that the pile of blocks will become our extension...
So, I have just read an article by Stephen Fontenot in UTD Today discussing whether you can reduce biases by educating people about autism. Three groups of people were used. One group was shown a video about autism and how to socially interact with them. Another group had training about mental disability but autism wasn't… Continue reading Autism – who has to change?
Well, I am managing better. We have the first pour of the foundations and everything is moving a might quicker than expected... They are thinking at the moment of finishing one or two weeks early. Wow! Picking up the back garden... Foundations going in. Well, there we are then. The garage is being studded and… Continue reading Concrete and mud
Don't get me wrong, there is a way to go. But it has started... I'll blog again once there is more to see rather than mud and a hole... But we are getting there.
