So we’ll be moving house end of this year. The process of doing the renovations has been more challenging this time around because we have to plan meetings around the kids schedules and Alyssa has to be dragged with us wherever I go – tile shops, sanitary ware shops, etc. Thankful, so so thankful, that she’s generally so good.

Still, the entire process would be much more enjoyable without the pressure of having to hurry to pick up the kids. Less rushed, more relaxing. Oh well! We’re glad we have found a good interior designer whom we trust. Nevertheless, I worry that the house will not turn out the way we imagine just because it’s sometimes so hard to translate what’s in your mind into reality given time constraints. We could shop around and look endlessly at materials, but we kind of just want to move things along. No luxury of time now.

Well, hoping and praying for the best!

In the meantime, we brought the boys to see the house before any works were started. And we just brought them again on Sunday to see what the house looks like now that some walls have been hacked. Wow, I really never realised how much sand was needed to do the floor works.

We’ll head back with the kids every now and then to see the progress. Excited, but a little apprehensive. Fingers crossed!

The boys were lamenting that they can't run from their room into Alyssa's room now that this toilet door has been sealed up. I'm thinking, "Yay!" hahaha. Else we'll have so much trouble getting them to go to bed chasing them from one room to another.

Looking through a hole in the wall that's going to be sealed up too :)
