November has been a bit of a mixed bag so far.
On the good front, the reno is coming along, albeit slowly:
The roof structure is going up and there is some indication that it might one day be finished.
Bad stuff: Joe came off his bike last Tuesday and broke his rib and injured his shoulder. On the bright side, it's very good that he wasn't more seriously injured.
He's taking strong painkillers, which is just about all that can be done.
More good: It was Joe's birthday celebration this past weekend, so despite the pain and discomfort, he managed to enjoy himself at a huge birthday lunch.
I frocked up in my new Gary Bigeni drapey skirt arrangement and a black top:
Excuse the strange slightly glazed expression on my face. I think the stress of this year has finally got me!
At the birthday feast we had this:
It was a joint birthday celebration for another friend, so we booked a room in the Four in Hand Pub in Paddington. The food was utterly amazing and the wines weren't bad either!
To end on a good note, here's a picture of the new roof structure from D's bedroom window.
We are hoping that we might be able to move back in one day....
How are you? are you as sick of 2014 as I am or has this year been kinder to you?
