A Week of Two Halves

What a week it’s been.  We visited our section on Sunday afternoon and took a few snapshots as the digger is now on site.  Unfortunately, work can’t begin until we receive the nod from the local Council.

Monday morning came in with a bang. If you’ve read my earlier post you’ll know my grandad passed away.  This came as a bit of a shock to me as although he had been moved into a nursing home the last time I spoke to my mum she said he was doing okay.  His funeral is this Wednesday 22 June at 3:00 p.m. (GMT time), 2:00 a.m. here in New Zealand. My cousin is hopeful that she’ll be able to live stream it for us as we won’t be travelling back to the UK for it.

To keep myself occupied I whipped these up from some wool I won in the June Yarn Lotto as hubby and I were heading to Fieldays on Wednesday and it’s usually pretty nippy until mid morning.

Fieldays is the largest agricultural show in the southern hemisphere.  We usually really enjoy it but not so much this year but I think this probably had more to do with our mood than the show itself.  I was still reeling from my grandad’s death.

On Friday, we finally received the news we had been waiting for. The Council have granted Resource Consent.  Yay!  Some good news to end the week with, although we didn’t really feel up to celebrating we did enjoy a glass of wine or too.  Finally the digger can begin work on creating a level building platform for us.
