Finishing the Finishes


Today was the day…

We started seeing a number of finishes being finished. Outside, broken steps were repaired…

Most of the toilets are in and working…

Basins are in with working taps…

My bathroom is looking good…

I helped Mike make a cupboard for the upstairs bathroom – it will be useful for cleaning material but its urgency lies in the necessity for a place to put the router for the internet. First lay the wood down on the floor…

We screwed them all together and put the back on. We took it through to the upstairs bathroom and installed it in the right spot…

Ready for the internet peeps who come tomorrow to connect everything.

There is an issue with our shower but they will try to fix that tomorrow. The plan is to see how finished it is by Friday and take it from there.

Mike managed to get the hard drive out of my sick laptop and has got hopefully all my documents off. So grateful!

Psalm 103:2-4

Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all His benefits – who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion.

The best is yet to come.

Keep the smile going.

God bless you.

In His Grip,

Helga xx 🙂
