Breaking through from the old to the new
02 August 2011
This was a real milestone moment in the story of our house extension. Breaking the wall down between our little old lounge and our new (almost completed) extension.
Our house has been transformed from a little pokey batch where you had to move about in single file to an open spacious light filled home.
But agh, what a lot of mess! I'm sure you can imagine the mess and dust to clean up afterwards, we did this a few weeks ago and there are still traces of dust hiding here and there.
There is still a lot to do before it is finished, but it's feeling now like we are really truly nearing completion. Next job is to finish oiling the ceilings and painting the ceiling beams and then we can lay the oak floors, can't wait!
And, we have also moved into our new bedroom, another milestone moment, but that can be another post.
And just an update on the whooping cough - we are coming out of the fog, finally. We're rather tired but feeling a little more relaxed that we are over the worst of it. Liam has pretty much stopped coughing and Isla is only having a few bad coughs at night, but it's not scarey anymore. We had three nights of scarey with Isla, when I was just willing her to take another breath! I have done a lot of research on remedies for fighting whooping cough, and we have been taking all sorts of vitamins and herbal teas and concoctions. I could write a book!
