House Update



....................Can you hear that?


It could be the sound of beautiful running water.

Or some brand new plumbing in our new house.

I think it's more like the sound of patience, excitement and achievement!

It was such a thrill to turn on a tap today and see fresh, clear water, pumped from our new rainwater tanks.

Kind of like a milestone.

Let's do the numbers -

*  4 years living on the farm, in the shed.

*  4 Christmas celebrations

*  So many summers and winters and birthdays

*  More days than I can count......

I really can't believe that what I've been dreaming about for so long, will finally become a reality, in only a matter of weeks.  Something The Hubbster and I have worked so hard for.

We will have space and storage and privacy and organisation and something lovely for our family.

The hard days are quickly becoming a memory, and now a sense of relief and achievement have taken their place.

Ahhhhh fabulouso! Beautiful crystal clear water. Seems like such a basic request, but after your marathon effort, I have no doubt you'll be savouring all of the little things. How exciting, only a few more weeks to go! xo

Oh running water, bliss!! We have friends who just spent their 5th Canberra Winter in a shed, next to their amazing but slow build home (as the husband wanted to build as much as he could himself, only he works 100 hours a week) with 4 young boys. The mother is so positive & wonderful, i don't know how she does it. Mind you, they did the lot with cash too, so no mortgage, very clever & well worth the sacrifice!! Love Posie
