I can't quite believe

  • that our building work has started.
  • just how many cups of tea I have made over the past week.
  • that my builder is called Bob (though he does not wear orange checkered shirts).
  • the sight of four girls on Sunday morning climbing on diggers and dumpers in their pyjamas.
  • exactly how our garden looked before this project began.
  • how quickly the holes and trenches appeared.
  • that I am already having to think about where to positon radiators and lights.
  • how long we managed to ponder over whether to reposition a door (and in the end didn't).
  • that every night Bob reconfigured pipes and electric to enable me to use my washing machine.
  • we have another 16 weeks to go (if things run to schedule).
