Building update

I'm so behind with posting about the building up on the hill. I've been busy in the shop (Praise God!) and now that I have accommodation to manage, I just don't seem to get to the site after hours to take photos. These below were taken ten days ago; since then a LOT has been done like the flooring is laid and the cupboards are about to be fitted this week. 

The shower floor mosaic has been laid; Grant will hang the shower cubicle. The toilet has been installed. The plumbing is just about plumb done! 
 The windows have been fitted  (perhaps I've said this before)
 The ceilings are in (I'm sure I've posted this as well!)
 The ceiling fans are in 
 The downlights are inserted 
 The archway between the living area and the bedroom 
 The retaining wall at the back 
 Steve will insert river rocks once Amon has completed this part of building the wall 
Caroline and Mr Tibbs came to inspect the cottage as well (he's almost pulled her off her feet!)

Me and my dog

We're still on the estate "squatting" in Steve and Estelle's one accommodation unit. I'll post about the building progress soon. 

Meanwhile, when I get home, it's kick off my smart sandals, don my walking shoes and (by this time Skabenga, is panting and whining next to me in the small space next to my bed),  we walk outside and onto the driveway. 

Oh, this is all after work. It happens again and again and again during the night. I can't think or remember who started this habit of walking at midnight, 2am, 3.30am and finally an official early morning walk at 5am! 

The driveway which leads through two other properties and to the veld beyond 
Yesterday I snapped a Reedbuck grazing in the distance 

Yip; I do this same walk about three time (minimum) during the night. I enjoy it. Skabenga loves it!

Cute kitties post

Hi Bozo and Mum's blog readers; this is Ambrose with an update on the cute Hedges kitties.

Last week Dad Ginger was asleep on his chair and cushion and I decided to horn in on his space. 
 Dad Ginger on the left, was pushed up by me! 
 Oi Dad, you're cramping my style! 
Aaah, that's always nice when Dad Ginger grooms me! 

Then this morning, Unca Shadow was resting under the blanket; when he tried to come out, he was afraid because Dad Ginger gave him the "eye".

 Can you see Unca Shadow peeping out under the blanket? 
Aunty Chappie watched us from the top of the wood stove
