OK, so this has nothing to do with textiles but, it is a momentous day. It's taken us around two years working with the architect, picking a builder, getting permits, dealing with neighbours and signing contracts, not to mention all the thinking before that! Today, they started on our extension.
We're building out the front of our house and adding a big family (read television/movie for all the boys) room, a double garage below for our cars and STORAGE SPACE. This is a very expensive way for me to get some storage space for all our accumulated collections, or more precisely, to get all the cricket bags, tennis bags, and their attendant equipment out of the house. There will be a beautiful terrace with views over to the Eaglemont hill, and, we can watch the cricket at our local cricket club!
It will take around 6 months and we're all looking forward to the changes.
Oh, and I got my haircut today, into a light fun bob sort of thing and I'm enjoying the feeling. Sorry, no pictures, you have to ask me for coffee for that!
