Which Comes First...the Nest or the Egg?

They say time waits for no man.  In this case, it seems we don't wait for a house - we start filling it anyway!

And so the race is on.  This, our second baby, is due sometime around the second week of June.  Will the house be ready by then?  Will it be ready perhaps a couple of months before, when I might not be too large, clumsy and tired to pack and move house?!  Or will it all come to a grinding halt and will we then face the uphill battle of a move on top of those first few weeks when one is so sleep deprived from witnessing most of the 24 hours in a day?  Only time will tell...

So much for returning to work in Feb to earn some money for furnishing the house!  Best laid plans and all that!

Not sure whether to break the news to the Site Manager before or after Christmas...don't want to jinx our good progress thus far with added pressure!

Plaster is due for installation today.  I haven't heard from the Site Manager yet on whether the house passed the pre-plaster quality re-inspection yesterday.  Hopefully!


  1. WOW Congratulations Nat and Paul! I hope your house is finished in time or you wont know what hit you. We had Hamish and put our house to Auction 6 weeks later and that was stressful enough.

    Things are going well for you guys. Im sending positive vibes to get your house done in time. I hope that the morning sickness passed you by too :)

  2. Congratulations you gorgeous family! Our fingers are crossed that it will all fall into place for you.

  3. Congratulations!! Hopefully you'll be in well before baby arrives.
