Hump Day Happiness
I spent much of yesterday evening contorting my face into any expression but a smile.
We met with our builder, and when he spoke of cutting holes in our beautiful floors, ripping down walls and lifting beams into holes in our roof, I cringed.
When he talked about it taking six or seven months, I grimaced.
Then we spoke about money and you really don't want to know how my face looked at that point.
But Wednesdays are set aside for smiles and cheer (as declared on Hump Day Happiness by Naomi at Under the Yardarm). So here are the bits that made me smile:
It is all due to begin in three to four weeks. This is good, because I am the most impatient person in the history of the world.
The vision I have of our completed house will pull me through. The extra living space, the long wall of glass doors opening out onto our backyard, my study with its floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, our bigger ensuite. All this makes me smile.
And there are other reasons I am smiling right now - my little girl is better and back to her normal happy self, and it's only three more sleeps until our holiday to Samoa!
It appears that some of the waiting in my life is about to end.
