One year ago today,
builders started cutting into our roof.
I took this photo after they left for the day.
over the next four months
our home went from this
Here's a whirlwind reminder
of those days.
Somehow we lived
through it all,
and even hosted Emily's birthday party,
we remembered today
(when she asked about this year's party)
I look back through my blog now
and realise that life went on during those times.
Laura graduated from primary school,
concerts were attended,
Christmas cards were made.
I carried on with my elimination diet,
cooking everything from scratch.
But, it was worth it all.
We have space to breathe,
space for each girl
and space for my craft equipment
with another quiet spot to retreat to.
There's still lots to do,
the fence is only half-painted
and the garden is a mess.
It's been quite a year.
But at this end, it's been a good one.
The chaos of the building
was forgotten on about the
the day after we moved the
furniture into the upstairs.
you really do forget about it afterwards.
Just can't believe a year has passed
since it all began ....
