I’m very happy, So excited I could burst, and extremely relieved! I really don’t know whether to dance around laughing, burst into gears, or sleep th sleep of the truly Exhausted. . . . It’s been a stressful couple of months. Unnecessarily so, thanks to a stupid mistake on our part, and the childish behaviour of a third party.. now though, things are on the up!
Yesterday we got notice that we have been granted planning consent for a 20 x 40 ménage.
I don’t actually know how to explain exactly what this means to me. Six years ago, although it was a dream, if you’d told me I’d be living in a house with land and stables, I’d have laughed at you. Throw in a s hool and I’ have told you you were mad! You know, Hal and I aren’t rich. Everything we have achieved is as a result of hard work, in soul destroying jobs, hours of overtime, especially by Hal, some canny decision making on both our parts even before we met, and some massive sacrifices. Yes, we’ve had some help here and there from those who love us, but we wouldn’t have if we weren’t prepared to put in the graft. Neither of us have ever had anything handed to us on a plate. That’s why this is such a monumental achievement.
We already have a trusted builder lined, so just neee some decent weather so the work can be done. Not asking for much eh?!
This is going too make such a difference to us, on so many levels. Nobody pinch me, I don’t want to wake up.
