it's been great having a break from the real full on work on house building that has been going on - we're both feeling just ordinarily tired at the end of the day now :) not bone weary!

Mr Tasmania has headed off to help a mate work on his new shop and I'm at home contemplating where to start in the housework - I have tomorrow off and would really like to spend it in the garden (assuming it's not raining) so I'm trying to get motivated to get all the other stuff out of the way today ... mixed results so far, dishwasher is on, load of washing is on ... I'm blogging, have just been playing games on Facebook, and am now going to play with photos for a little bit .... we'll see how I've gone by the end of the day!

anyhoo, yes, we've been doing some work on little bits and pieces up at the new house .. we've painted the most gorgeous bright red door to be the under house access door ... and yesterday we started painting the eaves - hooray - actual paint on the house! Unfortunately not inside paint but still, we painted!

Otherwise ... well, I've read a few good books, I'm going through all the design mags we've bought in the last three years and getting them ready to be recycled via various friends :), and I've, yet again, bought more wool!

Here is our lovely door ....

and our front door, now with added brickwork!

and the brickwork down the side of the house - apparently they will be finished in about 8 - 10 days!

and our bedroom, now with the lovely highlight windows installed above the main window and doors ... make all the difference in winter!

and finally, my lovely boys on the beach :) - cold but great walk yesterday morning - so nice to do it in the daylight, bring on the shortest day tomorrow, after that's gone it's practically Summer!
