Home Ashe, Home!!!!
Ok, pardon my lack of blogging lately but it has been one of those crazy hectic last couple of weeks where one minute you are standing in a tile shop, the next you are playing golf with my eldest out the back, whilst hanging out the washing, emailing the cabinet maker, fetching rocks out of bubs mouth kinda weeks... yes, one of THOSE couple of weeks. But today, finally, it just all clicked. Ahhhhhhhh I can feel the weight lifting off my shoulders as I sit here and type.
Saturday we officially moved into the not so little shoebox. I am still pinching myself and probably will be for quite some time. It is not fully completed, but it is liveable and cosy. Outside may still look like a job site but hey, I grew up as a builders daughter and my husband is a tradie so really.... what could I expect!!!
I am overwhelmed right now with it all and when I first inspected the finished product last Friday, I cried. Tears of pure relief and disbelief that my dad had made our dream into a reality.
This is home.
This is where we can all retreat from the outside world into our own. Brad and I have a space and place where we can close the doors and enjoy a few well deserved quiet moments. The kids have an area for all their toys and many little spaces to hide and explore.
Right now I am ready to hang up my moving shoes for a few years and enjoy this place. (I can hear all our family members sigh's of relief right now. No more moves for a couple of years I promise!!!)
I will upload a few pics along the way once we are settled and have running hot water, a washing machine up and running and the bench is cleared... (I can handle all of this because... I have a dishwasher!!!!)
Lastly, I am so unbelievable thankful to everyone who helped us!!!! It was a lot harder then expected moving, especially with two little cherubs... we could not have done it without out all our wonderful helpers.
I am off to research and find a new dining table via eBay... wish me luck!
