Well…..as you all know, 2012 came and went and here we are already 5 days into 2013! I decided NOT to make any New Years resolutions this year……I don’t have a very good track record of sticking to them anyway! LOL How about you?

Gosh the time flies, doesn’t it? Especially if you are having fun?? Well….I can’t say that ‘FUN’ is exactly what I have been having lately……since most of my time has been spent painting my parents new granny flat! BUT….I know they will appreciate the extra space once the painting is done and they can move in! ONE positive thing though is that I have been climbing up and down a ladder sooo much I am sure it has done wonders for toning my buttocks! LOLL

Granny Flat Extension!

Granny Flat Extension!

The granny flat is the part to the left of the breezeway, which is just below the Hot water System on the roof. There is still a LOT of work to be done yet, even when the painting is done! There is a verandah to be added down the side of the building, past the breezeway. It’s a continuation of our existing verandah, which is just out of sight and not yet finished either. Unfortunately for a while until the verandah is completed,  mum & dad are going to be STUCK in the flat, unless they want to JUMP out their sliding glass door….or maybe we can put a slippery dip there so they can slide out? LOLLLL Nah….They will just have to come through our house to get out BUT still it will be better for them having more room! My mum wanted to put a ladder on the breezeway for her to get out….can you imagine an 82YO mum climbing up and down a ladder everytime she wanted to go in the garden for a stroll? She would do it too, if I would let her! LOLLLL

Oh my….when I look at the above pic I realise that there is SO much work to be done outside in the garden as well! Building debris to be cleaned up etc…..I guess I will be busy for a while yet BUT….since time passes so quickly, it won’t be long and I will be in my studio and busy sewing and designing bags again! Oh how I can’t WAIT!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR to ALL my wonderful friends, readers and followers! It’s been great FUN getting to know so many of you as well! 🙂
