For those who are interested ... a house update....

Finally, I have some news on the home front and as so many of you ask me often how the house is going and have we started the re-build yet etc I thought I should give you an update.

My husband and I have decided to go with our own builder.  Fortunately we have had work done in the past by a terrific local builder who we feel really comfortable choosing to do this job for us for a number of reasons. 

Plans have been drawn up and we are getting ready to go to Council with them.   Today we sat down with a consultant and chose the exterior colours which we are really happy with.

We visited our block today and it was strange to see it now overgrown with weeds but with luck, this time next year, we will be coming home to a new home through a cheery poppy red front door. 


I will share more as plans proceed but for now, thank you again for caring enough to ask how we are going and for cheering us along.  As so many of you often say to us, it is the little things that count and it means the world to me.

Cheers

Jan-Maree xx
