It pays sometimes to wind the past back a little and take a look at things at the beginning, and realise how far you have come. Day to day, you look around and take it for granted the stuff that somehow always seems to have been that way. You forget the struggles and privations that you went through to achieve what you no have. We slept in the garage sleep out for the 6 months the house was being built, cooking on the BBQ just outside the veranda door, in all weathers! Despite the discomfort, it was fun, and exciting watching everything slowly take shape. Living the dream.
