The life of Farmers Wifey is a very busy one at the moment. I'm like a tree with branches going everywhere and an apple on each one!
I haven't blogged for five days so that makes me a very bad blogger!
Instead this is what I've been doing:-
Miss D (aged 11) has been dancing at the Eisteddfod all week..coming away with a highly commended and a third place. Farmers Wifey came away with a heavy heart filled with love and pride!
Mr C (aged 9) has now passed the halfway mark on his liquid diet! His doctor and his dietician have both commented on how mentally strong he is, saying that they are so inspired with his strength and determination!
He will start taking meds soon, something which I'm worried about, as I don't like to give these to him, but I know he needs to have them...
Miss T (aged 9) has now decided that she wants to dance, as she is in love with our new dance teacher Miss Michelle, so I'll have two in tights very soon!
The Money Pit is really taking shape now, with the guys starting to sand the floors today. They said that by Sunday they will have applied the first coat of polish, which will have me doing the happy dance!
We are so close to moving in, I can hardly believe it. In fact, I won't believe it until I am sleeping in my new Antique White and Green painted bedroom.
I was thinking today that we really have come full circle - this time four years ago, I was lovingly packing my things away in big plastic boxes, getting ready to move to the farm. Now only in a matter of weeks, I'll be unpacking them and decorating my beautiful new country home, which I have dreamed about for so long.
I am so excited about Christmas, and I'm already thinking about table decorations, our Christmas tree, and the emotional feelings I know I will have on Christmas Eve after waiting so long for our house to be completed.
It certainly has been a life changing experience, living in our shed, building our house, and coping with the never ending bad camping trip, while keeping our family sanity intact and our beautiful dreams alive.
It can be done. It's amazing what a person can do with determination and patience.
As much as I can't wait to move into the house, I'll always remember our happy times in the shed.
Where Santa left gifts and the kids rode their bikes through storms.
It will always brings a smile.......
