We don’t really have any idea of how long the project will take. Unlike all our other projects in the UK where projects were planned to the day and to the pound, this project as I have said elsewhere, is for us. We know what we want to do and what we are capable of, we probably don’t have enough money at the moment to do all the work, so we will just make a start, and one day it will be finished! I think it would be all too easy to talk ourselves out of renovating the house exactly as we want if we were to think about the job in detail – so far better to bury our heads in the sand and pretend we have all the money and time in the world, and just go for it! And anyway, we want to ‘enjoy’ the renovation without putting ourselves under unnecessary pressure … so it will be done when it is done!
My posts will be published when I have something to write about – when a particular job is done, rather than a weekly/monthly update. In the long term, I think it will become a better read than trying to add content when really there is not much to say, so please be patient – this is a real life renovation that is happening right now!
To keep more up to date on our daily/weekly comings and goings, please keep reading Helen’s blog at midlifeitaly.com where you should get an idea of the progress (or lack of it) we are making on the project. Where possible, Helen will let you know at the end of her blogs when I post a new entry for the renovation.
However, I do urge you to register for my blog separately and I will email you each time I post so you don’t miss anything (click on the ‘OTHER STUFF’ menu above and select ‘REGISTER’) – this will also give you access to the ‘Project Costs’ info, so you can keep track of how skint we are getting!
Ok, so let’s get started … I love it when a plan comes together!
