I thought I'd show you some photos of our farm and of The Money Pit.
If you don't know by now, we are building our dream home, whilst living in a shed.
Never in a million years did I think I would be living like this. We are going on 3 years now, and I think I am nearly over it.
How do I explain....it's like a neverending bad camping trip. The house will be worth it, I know, but at times I get so sick of living in a dusty shed.
I get sick of the frogs and the geckos, the storms and the rain that sometimes comes in sideways..the wind and the occasional cyclone. The lightening strikes that hit the shed because we are living on a hill...
I can't wait to unpack my beautiful things, to find my slowcooker and my electric frypan, because I have NO IDEA which storage box they are in....
I can't wait to have more than one plate and one set of cutlery each, and to be able to use my beautiful linen again.
And I can't wait to have...space. We live on 75 acres but that's not what I mean.
The five of us are sleeping in the same room and it's chaos at bedtime...our cheap temporary wardrobes and cupboards are falling apart even though I've glued them back together twice..
I've given up on scrapbooking for the moment because I have nowhere to do it and be able to leave it out. The kids have trashed my ribbons and used my buttons and baubles for their own crafts.
I'll wait until I have my very own child free craft room, which I am looking forward to more than the kitchen!
We are working as hard and as quickly as we can to finish the house, and because we are owner builders, it takes time. The Hubbster is wiring at the moment and we are nearly ready to organise a plumber. Then a tiler. Then a waterproofer. Then an internal fitout. And it keeps going...
And this makes me frustrated. Because the shed is a metre away from the house so we look at this amazing big Queenslander every day and I wonder how long it will take....
Our farm is beautiful..rolling hill, lots of peace and room to play.....
This is the back of the house showing the verandah.. which is massive.
We plan to have steps leading down to the pool.
The back corner of the verandah, oh and there's the shed right next door!
Egads. I've gained 1 kilo this week. Crumbs.
I've been a bit naughty, I haven't exercised, although I've felt more relaxed.
I've stopped drinking coke zero because it was making me cranky. I've switched to ginger beer and a little more water.
The Hubbster and the kids and I played a game of touch football today and I think my heartrate went up.
Just a bit.
I"m blaming Easter.
