My already limited time to blog has been compromised further because The Internet in our rental house has run out! EEK!
So, I have about 5 mins to get this up before I write a report.
The walls are starting to go up:

It is looking tiny!
But it's fantastic to see some changes happening, as we'd started to despair of anything ever happening.
In Grand Designs it always appears as if builders are on site every day beavering away, but I rarely see anyone on our site.....

A pic of an outfit I wore to work:

This shows the size of the small bathroom. It will house a shower, loo and tiny washbasin. It's very, very small..... luckily none of us are big people!
The architect assures us that it won't be too small.
Luckily, the other bathroom will be bigger, although not much.
The aqua theme seems to be popular with the builder - it will be covered up, and the door will go.

On Saturday I went shop walking and tried on a few cocktaily outfits.
I'm craving new posh clothes.....
This dress is by an Australian designer called Bianca Spender. The Shop Assistant got very excited that the size 4 fitted me, but as you can see, it's a very unflattering length and the shoulders were too high - even though it's a small size, it's still cut for someone taller and longer than me. It would have needed tailoring through the body and hips, taking up and it's just too much of a faff.
Not to mention the fact that it was beyond my budget, and I've already bought a new party outfit for this silly season (a post on that later)
Fun to try things on, though.
On Sunday we blew the budget and went out for Brunch to a local cafe called 'Illi Hill'.
It was the best cafe food I've had in ages. All the produce is seasonal and (if possible) local.
These hotcakes were utterly delicious: poached saffron pears, labne and pistachio.
View from the back yard to the new kitchen and living area. I really hope it'll be finished on time, but I seriously doubt it will. We're now facing the fact that from 21st December we will be homeless.
How was your weekend?
