Today is my blogversary. I started to write this blog, purely unplanned, on April 26th 2009. Thats....11 years! Whoa.
So for your nostagic pleasure, I give you my second ever blog post:
My New Mansion
My Dear Husband and I were having an argument a little while ago. Basically, the theme was me complaining that nothing gets done around here (we live in a half-renovated house) and that he always wants to go and work out at "the land" (we also own a block of land on which we planned to build our "dream" house on).
To cut a long story short, we decided to move out into the shed. We hope that this will achieve a few things: we can finish renovating the place we are in when we move out (MUCH easier!); we can then rent this place out (always welcome a few extra $$); we will be where we really want to be; and when we do finally have enough money to build our house, we'll be right there to oversee it.
But I don't know if I'm excited or just plain scared. "Scared?" you ask. Well, moving out to the shed means moving out to a long drop loo*. Hubby promises to build me a floor and walls in the shed at least, but the long drop will have to stay for a wee (pardon the pun!) while. What am I letting myself in for?
*(For those of you who don't know what a long drop is, think toilet with a view, fresh air and no flush button! That's a picture of my very own long drop up there.)
It's windy here today. Real windy. Like blow your house down windy. Or, in actuality, blow your dunny down.
Yup. That there is what greeted me last time I went out to sit on the throne.
This is what it looked like last summer - the kids got muddy and decided to paint it (with mud - I guess they were going for the adobe look).
So, what's a girl to do when she's gotta go? Well, I pushed it back up straight, used it, then got the hell out of there before it blew over again!
I rang Hubby at work. He laughed. But then he's at work - with a flushing loo to hand. Huh.
I think it's time to get me one of those fancy indoor flushing loos at home.
