Today was the day…
I visited the Beach and the Build. I first did some work and then headed for the beach to meet up with friends. We were sure to keep our distance and wear masks, but it was super to see them again.
The day was absolutely stunning. Hardly a breath of wind and warm and sunny. It is the lull before the storm. Rain is forecast from tomorrow morning. The arrow is where our build is happening.
While I was there, my managers unexpectedly Skyped me, so I sat in my car and took the call. They had some urgent work for me to do but I had about an hour before I needed to go online and get on with it. So from there I went to the building site.
The thing is that while I want to see the build, the lure is my husband, so when I got there and his car wasn’t there, I didn’t bother going up but headed for home. Half way home, I passed him going in the other direction, so I did a U-turn and got to the build a moment or two after he arrived and we went up together. He has just completed his 3-phase distribution boards so we are all back on track. I spoke to the builder and he is happy.
And here I am in my scullery…I match the internal cladding!
The internal cladding has begun. They will do more tomorrow when the rain is falling…lounge wall…
Our bathroom sink area with insulation and part of the cladding…
Julian’s floor all boarded up for the storm…
It will be a very good test for our roof. I hope it stays put as those roof sheets are 7m long.
This blog is early as I am going to be going to the airport to pick up Julian, so I thought I’d get it off beforehand.
After yesterday’s blog, I thought to look up a picture of Granny with her red blanket…I found this one from 5th August 2012. I’ve still got the scarf she is wearing there as well. Happy memories of Granny. 😊So glad we got to spend that time with her.

Keep the smile going.
