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!
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?
Although not as busy as it could have been. Unfortunately, late last night we found out that due to a run over with another job, the framers can't make it until next week. I was miffed. But today there are smiles. You see the large cherry picker and frames, with possibly a crane, would not… Continue reading Busy today
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…
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
