Eye of the needle
Well another weekend has flown by, and once again, we have to wait a whole 5 days to get back on to the build. With some fantastic workmanship by Ivan & Peter on Friday, and with the addition of fabulous Teresa (and me) on Saturday, we have put up more internal walls, and have almost completed building all of our stud walls. Yay!
I've also had my first 'hammering ones finger' incident, which wasn't as bad as I imagined it would be, and I managed to get through a long day (packing up in the dark isn't such a good thing!) with a cold, so today I have been resting whilst Peter is in at work making up for a Friday swap.
On a completely unrelated topic, I was thinking about what some people have said to us re building a house can put a real strain on a relationship/marriage. At first I didn't really understand this, but now I do! The thing is, Peter and I have different ways of doing things. I'm a bit of a planner, I love planning and preparation, especially when it comes to building something big like a house. For Peter, planning does not come naturally, and well, you can probably get the picture.
At times it's a battle of the titans, but I must confess, I am losing this battle, and losing badly. Add to this, my tendency to be impatient, and my innate bossiness and it's a recipe for some serious 'personal growth'. We are going through the eye of the needle at the moment, and I am looking forward to more harmonious times!
So as you can see, this journey of ours has many different twists and turns - I was pretty good at hurdles at school, I've just got to get better at these ones.
