The Waiting place........

So, it has been a while...

1 year and 2 months to be exact....   Ups, downs, in betweens and...... the first thing I thought of was Dr Seuss:

Waiting for a train to go or a bus to come,
or a plane to go or the mail to come,
or the rain to go or the phone to ring,
or the snow to snow or waiting around for a Yes or No
or waiting for their hair to grow.
Everyone is just waiting.
Waiting for the fish to bite
or waiting for wind to fly a kite
or waiting around for Friday night
or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake
or a pot to boil, or a Better Break
or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants
or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.
Everyone is just waiting.

During the last year, we've battled with Council, our new Neighbours, our Builder, built a fence and nearly pulled the plug on building.  

However, after powering through an emotionally exhausting period, we finally received a call from our building consultant on Friday and were notified that we are breaking ground first thing Monday morning!  

So, of course we drove by the block on Saturday and had to cut all the grass..... again!

Here are some pictures 'before' !!!!!!  Let the fun begin!
