Hectic, happy times
What a hectic and tumultuous time I have had in the last few months. So much so that I did not even visit the site to Stew. Boy, I missed it, and not, (am I making any sense here??)
Just allow me to explain the many events that happened. BIG, BIG news - I am no more a single mother. And to think I had to wait till my eldest is twenty-three err twenty four and my youngest sixteen. More Big news - my house has just been handed over to me by the building contractor. Now it is just me drawing up a snag list before I sign off the project.
Just see some of the snags I already identified:
Some damp spots.
Damaged timber on window frame.
Sloppy work under the kitchen counter top.
Unacceptable even if it is just the garage.
And that is just the start.
For now I just need to catch up with Stewing and see to my neglected garden.
Cheers for now!

Many congratulations on your marriage Palmtree - what great news!! I hope you can get all those niggly problems sorted out with you home and that you and your family will have many happy years there.
Thank you all. I appreciate it.
Ok, now I'm so moved I'm having a little happiness cry here. Lovely news Palm Tree, I'm so pleased for you, your husband and your children. How big is your new garden?
I will not be giving up my current house which is also undergoing some renovation at the moment. The main reason being that at Wellington, the body corporate took a decision to not have any of the residents do gardening. "Apparently it is a Lifestyle Village and the developer is responsible for the maintenance of the garden that they want there." They hired a landscaper to do the gardening. Phah - what landscaper - all I see is dried out grass and a few reeds in strategic places.
Well Palm, I hope that they will change the rules at your new place. Perhaps you could get permission as the first one, and once the developer sees how much a proper garden can add to the complex as a whole they might soften their stance.
