Send lawyers, guns and money
We had our first RUC inspection (structural) on Friday and apart from hubby knocking a kid off his bike on his way home from work, the inspector having to come out twice in one day and one of the builders stomping around threatening to kill people, it went really well.
For all those concerned about the child on the bike (who was riding the wrong way down a one-way street and bumped into hubby’s car that was turning into traffic and doing about 2 kilometers an hour) he is fine. He limped a lot and said he’d probably get a day off school (the skin on his knee wasn’t even broken). When hubby called the kid’s mum she just asked him to drive her son home because she was in the middle of shopping.
Anyhooo – I’ve never been one to comment on anyone’s parenting so I’ll just stare at the ceiling at this point and whistle Dixie – I think hubby was more disturbed about the incident than the kid was.
After a tumultuous day where if felt like I’d taken on a Mexican drug cartel who couldn’t hit a barn door with 10 machine guns, I sat down and enjoyed a couple of (very) stiff drinks on the veranda.
We’ve employed some young carpenters and a painter to finish off the inside and I must say they are working out to be very productive and valuable indeed (particularly when there are snakes about). I’m finding it hard to keep up with them because they work so fast and do such a quality job (have I entered an alternate universe?)
I’ve put in some pictures of my bedroom below. The windows are huge and for those of you who read about me tripping on my bedspread and falling out a window – you’ll be happy to know that I’m putting up a safety rail so I don’t make the same clumsy mistake again.
I stood in my walk-in clothes closet and took a shot of the view my clothes will enjoy
The farmer up the road ploughed his field yesterday so I took a shot of the red soil.
The soil where we are is black and I’ll get a shot of this when they cut the sugar cane.
When I looked at the picture above after I’d taken it I realised why we have so many artists visiting the farm.
Below is a picture of the sunset that I took on my iphone while I was unwinding at the end of the day.
Have a great week and stay safe 😉
