My New House - Week 2

I'll be living here in no time! No time at all!

After my neighbour sent me the photo (last one in the previous blog entry), I got another two from G J Gardner's - the people who are building my house. They gave me the ones of my slab being down...



And another angle..



Then on Tuesday I got an email from my neighbour, and fellow photographer Fred Parry, upping my excitement 20x by telling me the frame was up, and it seemed to be up in just a couple of hours...

Note there's a big red C on the frame - that must be C for Carter :)



Today, just two days later, my friend Carol drove past and took some photos, emailed them to me saying...

'Here's some photo's of your house - another crappy day in Blenheim...'



and another view..



As I said before - I'll be moving in pretty soon :)

Today I shopped around for curtain fabric for the house and have settled on some shot taffeta for the living areas and for my bedroom.

I also dropped my cat off at the airport, and she is now ensconced in a Blenheim cattery for 4 months. Saying goodbye to her at the airport was just as bad as saying goodbye to my daughter when she left for London. I felt like a neurotic cat woman bawling my eyes out at the national cargo counter. At least I'll see my cat again soon :)

A new house. A NEW new house! Life must be good.

No it's scary - but it was cheaper for me to do it this way, than to buy existing. It just means I am homeless for a few months :)

I'm so excited for you! Already measuring the windows and getting the drapes, that is some supreme confidence!
