Yes yes yes!...all ground floor finally laid!!!. So grout up t.row and we can finally move onto the downstairs loo, plus fingers crossed get along way towards finishing the main bathroom. If they finish the main bathroom it will be a miracle - I’m more likely to get a personal visit from Jesus - I’ll take either though..I bet he’ll be busy though, big day for him...and of course Mr Santa..I bet they have a good bottle of wine together on Boxing Day...Aaaanyway....10 days to go till move in day, so a smidge of stuff to sort out still (we don’t eve know have connected soil pipes yet!!) but I have full, unshakeable confidence...I’ve not ordered the turkey yet though 🦃😂.
Uhmmm... can we just talk about HOW CUTE and handsome this guy is?! 😍 He also wears my @fortysevenfit apparel any chance he gets, especially when attending seminars or workshops... he’s my #1 supporter and I’m keeping him 🤞🏼 #cheesypostalert#hubbymaterial#movinginsoon
TIME TO GET REAL. We'll let you in on a MWT secret:
This photo DOESN'T depict us as mothers or entrepreneurs or women. 🤦♀️ This ISN'T a photo of our real selves. 🙅♀️ ...
The real portrait of a parent is partly confused and sometimes insecure. 🤷♂️ There's so many "literature" and "opinions" on how we should raise our kids, what materials and toys we shouldn't give our children, and so many ways to take the fun and pleasure out of being parents. 🙄 ... As parents, we can only keep on trying to also adopt a PlayAndLearn attitude towards raising our kids - to read and listen as much as we can to reliable sources. In MWT, our commitment is that we design our toys based on modern scientific research and collaborate with wood working communities and artisan-partners to make your investment on every ManilaWoodenToy worth it.
What a job....the guys have worked all week, including yesterday and today to get the kitchen floor all down....and we love it 😍. So house cleaned throughout ready for the kitchen delivery tomorrow..🤩 in a couple of weeks we should be rocking...and hopefully we can move in (if we have a working bathroom...) 🤞🏻🤞🏻 everything is right and turns up tomorrow? Thanks to all the guys and girls @ytctiles @andyhay79 they are beauties!
Building a home doesn't go smoothly and strongly all the time. Sometimes you need breaks; physically, mentally, and emotionally. It felt good today to go to Lowe's and grab some materials to get started again.
Georges got to pick the exterior lights out of a line up...the one decision he got to make 🍾🎉 he wanted “made in the USA” n these beauties were made in CA which made me like them even more 💛 #californialove#movinginsoon
Our kitchen completion is so so close that I can almost taste it! I already started sorting our jar storage that will go on our new shelves. Read all about it on the blog today 😉. #greenliving#upcycle#sustainableliving
