What are all these strange markings on our lawn ???
This is what the CIB did today after our encounter with what we, and they, believe to be extraterrestrials. Last night Matt and I had the weirdedst experience. It was close to midnight and suddenly our house went completely dark. It was very eerie. Then just as suddenly the brightest lights I've ever seen filled our living room. I can't really talk about what happened next, I'm still trying to process it really...
Actually I'm not processing it at all, I'm making it up as I go!!!!
The true story is...
In a month or so there will be an extension where Bella is standing in the photo above.
We are adding a family room.
Our family is growing and taking up more space.
They are bringing more friends home.
They are getting noisier.
We need somewhere to put them.
We need somewhere to hide from them.
We just need more room.
Where the window is in the photo below will become large double doors that will open into a lovely 7m x 5m living room.
The new room will also open onto a new deck which will aso be accessed from our existing living area. Our builder, who is also my cousin - Rory Wright from Southcoast Builders, came up today to mark it all out. Dad will do all of the excavation work on Saturday. Good ol' Dad is also going to help us put in some drainage through our back and side yards and level it all out.
This is so exciting. It's gonna be like a little renovation rescue weekend! I am so grateful for all of the help dad has (and will) give us. Matt and I will have to 'give back' a weekend to help mum and dad at 'the farm'.
