Life isn't a business to be managed, it's a mystery to be lived!

Up up and away!

And so the construction started. The ground was dug and we start to realize what was happening. Size wise though it is really confusing. When you have no walls the dimensions are messed up. You can’t really see it. So we were freaking out that we made it too small. For days and days. And yes we passed 2 times per day sometimes because the action has started and today we do have a house!

All this below happened in a day! It was madness. By lunch they had put two rows of bricks and when I visited in the evening there were walls higher than me! That’s the moment I really realized what was going on. It is a house and it might not be too small after all…

So I’ve never built anything, though I know it takes time. Then of course it depends who’s doing what and if it is a professional or not. And also in which country! I need to say, without knowing a whole lot of how to construct anything (well before this house I had not many clues) I must say the that our house is built fast, profesisonal and neat. Yes neat. Every time someone is done with their job they clean up around themselves.

My parents came to visit and they got to see the above, the following day we closed the house. Doors and windows are set.

Two first photos are from the front.

Below it is the living room and the bathroom window from the terass and the next picture is the garage from the side.

So now it is holidays and no more work. Also we had a small (actually big) problem with the window frames and so they will all be changed (no extra payment from our side of course).

The extra garage/ atelier 

Meanwhile we have been building our extra garage. G and his dad have been, not we as in me 🙂 I did some digging though 😉

We bought a land!

In Ciry le Noble!


This is how it looked like in January when we bought it. There was a small sheepfold which we made disappear so we can start building our future home! ❤

Hey everyone!

It’s been a while ey?
Well I will try to take things in some order. Big projects are ongoing so I’ve simply been busy 🙂

Let’s start with how the year started. I got a job (!) (that arrived just in time for Christmas) and I got a permanent contract too! Yay for me! So as some of you already know I now work in a shooooohoooooestore 😀 Comments?
So yeah sometimes it is Al Bundy-style with some interesting old ladies though mostly it is simply nice. I’m close to home and I’m obligated to wear shoes from our store soooo that means I’ve done some obligated shopping, sooo haaarrrrd 😛

The store is 700m2 and has aaaall price ranges. So it is really interesting to receive both customers as new collections for each season.

So now I’ve worked there for almost 7 months and soon I’ll have vacation too! Though as last in, I only have one week for summer which I will try to make most out of. I have a great friend and her husband coming over during the same week so we will spend our vaca together with G and me.


Coming up: our big project 😉
