...yes this IS a photo of a toilet! For those of you who know me this image will not be lost on you! YES WE HAVE A FUNCTIONING TOILET IN OUR NEW HOUSE!!

I have been meaning to blog about this all week, but things were a bit preoccupied with Maggie as you know!

We have been building a brand new house for nearly two years and are REALLY close to finishing and moving in. If only we could get the tradies to turn up! (Don't even get me started on that one!)

We went to "lock up "with a builder and have done the rest ourselves - that's the ENTIRE interior! (ah, yes - hence the TWO years!) So this is what we get up to EVERY weekend (of this entire year so far), and why we have totally fallen off the social calendar! (Special thank you to Rays parents for pitching in on EVERY one of those weekends, and for my parents for giving up holidays and coming down from the country to help out.)

On the plus side, I can now add "plasterer" to my resume, not to mention painter, interior decorator....etc etc.

Check out the lovely message in the driveway cement written by one gorgeous Raymond J. And don't you just love the river view!?....and, yes - this DOES mean a new "studio" for me!
