The Emotions Of Getting An Extension

My blog has been quiet lately. That’s because we are currently getting an extension on to the back of our house.
While I know it will end soon(ish) and will be brilliant, the current state of my house is:
‘Absolute F*cking Kip.’

In the last 2 weeks I have experienced the following emotions..

Excitement. We’re going to get a proper big kitchen. Yay!

Fear and apprehension as the builders rocked in and knocked walls down all over the place. (Okay, one..)

Stress and exasperation just trying to keep SOME of the house in a normal state. Who knew one room getting done could cause such chaos!

image

Impatience. WHEN WILL IT ALL END!!??

Acceptance. The noise. The builders everywhere. The dust. The chaos. It will be worth it. It will be worth it. It will be worth it….. (repeat x 100000000000)

Now pass the wine..  it’s just there in that box next to the cereals and the teabags…

    Yep, been there. Let me assure you it will end, it will be great. There will be dust places you didn’t think possible but ALL the wine will help.

    Good luck!

    It is such a nightmare when it is going on, but a bit like childbirth, once it’s over we tend to forget. Hang in there, I’m sure it will all be worth it.
