What happened next..?

March 3 2012:

We got married! It was a lovely intimate ceremony and reception in Warburton, at the Golf Club. Not too many people, just our families and closest friends, exactly what we wanted, and of course our Scout was the most perfect teeny-little flower girl ever

April – May 2012

We’re building the walls, started planning the gardens. Feels like we’re making some really good progress here, everything’s going pretty well. Had a pretty low-key 30th birthday.

Laying the very first blocks for the walls!

Hang on, what’s this nauseous, squirmy feeling in my stomach…….. why am I so tired lately……… I remember this feeling…

Yep, I’m pregnant.

Hi there lil’ Peanut, you’re here a whole lot sooner than we expected. We’d only just started talking about trying for another baby later this year. Oops.

So that means no more pouring concrete or climbing up and down ladders and scaffolds all day for me. (Not that I could even if I really wanted to, Hypremesis Gravarium is way worse than the morning sickness I had last time.)

July – August 2012

The build is progressing, slowly, but still going. It doesn’t help that we’re having one of the coldest, wettest winters ever this year. Poor Kane is still out there every day, slogging away at it. Rain, hail, wind, snow whatever, he never stops. The poor things been so stressed because everyone keeps telling him he’d better hurry up and get the house finished before this baby comes!

Not. Gonna. Happen.

September – October 2012

The walls are all finished! Yay! No more concreting. Now onto beams, rafters and internal walls.

Still sick, this morning / all day sickness is never ending! I do feel bad that I’m not out there helping on the build anymore, but between puking most of the day, crap weather and a very active toddler to keep up with, I just generally am not up to it. Luckily Kane’s dad has been helping out a lot too, because there’s no way I could do it!

Till next time
