Be careful what you wish for...!

Last year our builder told us that work would begin on our fire repairs and house extension in January and take approx 6 months to complete. I think it was actually late Feb by the time anything really started and then only in dribs and drabs. We had very dry weather over Summer and Autumn, during which time I repeatedly said "I wish these damn builders would hurry up and get into it".

Today is the first day of Winter and the weather bureau is predicting cold and wet weather all week. Today is meant to be the first day of my maternity leave.

Coincidentally, today we have what sounds like a half-dozen men removing part of our roof.....

Oh, wow! Yes, be careful what you wish for. :-)

Happy maturnity leave, though. These last days will go by so quickly...before you know it, a little baby will be in your arms. (hoping you'll have a roof to cover you!)

Email me if you have any questions. I can tell you about how things work here...it is probably very similar.

Sounds like a good excuse to go shopping ;) Seriously I hope they get a move on for you.

Oh I can't wait to finish work.

My husband started construction on the nursery the week before I went into labor. It's not easy keeping you and your baby clean with drywall dust everywhere. I feel your pain! God speed to your builders!
