What a whirl wind last 7 weeks it’s been. Amara Blog Awards at the end of October, the week following moving into a property with no bathroom nor kitchen and 17 days out of the 30 in November at Christmas Fairs with Laura Thomas Linens.
Focusing on work during this time, I was lucky to be able to leave day to day life in the hands of a great helper. Super nanny / super packer / super keep me saner-er. I laughed, cried, grumped and she just took it all in her stride. Isn’t amazing when people pop into your life and just make your days easier?
I’ve been asked a lot about what’s happening at my new Reno project. Much posting to follow from now onwards (tomorrow actually). To briefly update, we moved on the 1st November. A fantastic chippy started the next day to put a shower room into an existing disabled toilet. There was a hold up though. I ordered black brassware from Italy. In true Mediterranean relaxed style the deadlines and due dates came and went. So the job ground to a halt. Parts now arrived, the chippy’s back on site tomorrow morning and a Sparky too, to wire up for a kitchen going in.
So hopefully by the end of this week we will have a shower. Bathing in an over sized bucket with a plastic shower head hose, has had it’s day. It’s been tough time having such turmoil when I’ve been so busy work wise. What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger right?
