A bit of light relief. What does this have to do with building or construction, I hear you say?
A lot really. It takes a long time to build a person. You never have a set of plans to go by and goodness knows nothing ever goes to plan anyway. You are always changing, the frames move and settle, the exterior weathers a bit and needs a reno every now and then. The outlook is revised, the forecast is adjusted. The landscaping changes with the seasons and the fashions. The environmental influences have their impact, the materials sourced give good foundations, the suppliers are invaluable. People, dwellings for souls.
Here we are 4o years later, looking damn good I might add. I dare you to disagree.
We have been through Primary and High School together and now on the other side of the city from where we started. We have made it this far and I dare say this deserves a big round of applause. *and a Mexican Wave if you feel so inclined*.
We take a bow and say, Thank You.

Well since this room seems to be used quite frequently we have decided to add some artwork. Now no disrespect to the artist, who probably did not ever envisage her newly created design ending up in someones loo. I actually really love the design particularly for the colours. It's lovely. It's very "me". As you can see it's not on the wall yet. It is wood mounted and quite a bit heavier than I had anticipated so we will need a 5kg, removable hook I think. Oh damn, that means a trip to Bunnings (she says secretly clapping her hands together under the desk). Maybe I can coerce Miss T to choose a light shade while we are there, ANY light shade will do.
