I have written two exams this weekend and am very tired. They were both 4 hours each, which takes a lot out of a person, specially considering it typically starts a few hours before with an early wake up for last minute studying...I mean revision :)
Both went okay (only time will tell), unfortunately I still have four assignments due this week, so there is no rest...
I ran my second half marathon for the year last weekend, completing the Pick n Pay Half in 1:53:40. Not too bad considering I only had about two hours of sleep after a friend's karaoke 31st birthday!
Anyway, the purpose of this blog post is to show, not tell, what we have been up to when not at the office or studying/in lectures...
Firstly, the additions in the Bryanston home at Bantry. Please note, while these are undoubtedly a great feature to our home and make it infinitely more private and add re-sale value etc etc, don't be fooled, these were all for our two boys, Jelly and Squeaks. We put these up so that they could play in the garden without us worrying that they are always jumping next door or going to play in the bushes somewhere (a famous Jelly trait). Huge thanks to my dad for doing the lion's share of this installation while I was in lectures all weekend!
And now on to the progress at Pecanwood and all the changes. These have happened over a very short time, but you'll see the shift from basic walls to roof and now plastering!
The view across the living area into the corner where the open plan kitchen will be. The doorway leads into the scullery.
The storage room (a major plus) off the garage. This will save us a lot of hassle with golf clubs, bicycles, camping gear and the rest of EVERYTHING!
The house is going along brilliantly and it is so nice to see our own design taking shape. Helen and I literally drew, re-drew and measured every inch of this house. It is very satisfying to see our own imagination being created into something tangible! Very exciting!
More to follow...soon!
