Rest in Peace

Grandpa - although you will never get to visit inside our house, we will be sure to take many happy memories of you there with us. We love you very  much.

So much has happened over the past month since my last post.
  • Both my Grandpa's were admitted to hospital for aggressive cancers which were only discovered recently. Unfortunately, my dad's dad lost his battle, but he is now at rest without further pain.
  • Little bubs is fighting fit, with the 19 week ultrasound going well. It is kicking all the time and the obstetrician has supported that it will be a very active baby. D will be happy with that.
  • Back at school I completed my AST1 (Advanced Skill Teacher) which is a process that allows for recognition of the strengths and skills I bring to the job.
  • Our current house is still on the market. Seems like the interest is there, people are just being cautious with interest rates hovering, an election coming up and a lower demand in general. We are hoping a couple interested parties who will return again this weekend for an open inspection may actually put pen to paper.
Our beautiful Majestic is now nearing completion. The final fixings, painting, tiling, plumbing are all complete. Our 2nd Electrician is doing the final fix this week, leaving only the clean up to take to place. We have been given a walk through date of the 26th of July and Handover 1st of August. We just need to confirm with our work places for time off in the afternoon for this to happen.

Anyhow, here are some pics...

Beautiful stained front doors
Vandalised front doors (paint tins left in mini-skip)

We are now looking forward to the big move and not looking forward to all the extra jobs that need to be organised - carpets, floorboards, driveway, front fence, water tank...Busy Busy Busy... :-)
