house pictures  

Originally uploaded by mollydot.
I've finally uploaded more house pictures. I think the recent ones are all tagged windows, or you can see them in order in the building site set. It's come on quite a bit since the last picture I posted:

But I have found people who procrastinate more than I do! A quote for windows arrived today. I think they've missed the boat.

Last night we made a definite decision that we will continue to rent in Dublin for at least a year after the house is finished. Maybe where we currently are, maybe in a smaller, cheaper place. That's a load off my mind. I've been getting nervous about the move away from Dublin.

I take loads of photos every time we go to the house, but I don't get round to uploading them. The last time we went, the windows were the newest thing, so I focussed on them.

I took quite a few pictures of cabels too, as they were also new, but they're not uploaded yet. I've put up a couple more window ones though!

Ok. Poke me again at some stage if I don't. I'm not keeping up with the photos. Which is probably good, as you'd be flooded with house pics if I was. I'm not stinting on taking them.

Well, that's one solution to the Dublin property market - build your own and move out. Are you moving far from Dublin?

Kilkenny. Theoretically commutable, but not very pleasant, I imagine. There is a guy in work coming that far though, so it is doable.

Wow it is really starting to take shape!
a very caring potatomollydot on March 16th, 2007 10:49 pm (UTC)
Yes. Very much house-shaped now! When the roof went on, I started describing it as house-shaped. Now the chimney is on, I say it's very house-shaped :-)

OK, so you're building your dream home which is taking three centuries to do, then you're going to leave it empty for a year or ten because you don't want to move?

Um. Right.

Well, it's not quite ready yet.
Besides, it looks like Daniel O'Donnell will be waiting for me and he scares me (see thread below)

I thunkded ya liked daleks?

You're going to have to cut the apron strings sometime. How is MOVING TO AUSTRALIA to live for a while any different to finally having your OWN place, your dream home, this new world that's steadily evolving how you want it, to do with as you please, such a bad thing?

Having spent most of my life in rentals, being in your OWN space, no matter where it is, is fastastically magical. Live it, love it, own it, be in it. You will find out how incredible is - your own key to your own universe.

The commute is a big drawback. It's about 2 hrs without traffic. When I was in Australia, I wasn't working in Ireland! Though living in Bondi and working in Forestville for two months was a pain.
Hopefully I'll be able to work at home at least sometimes. I haven't looked into that yet.
And it's not so much moving away from Dublin specifically that I'm nervous about, but not living in a city. In Australia, I was living in Sydney or Melbourne. Quite different to having to drive to the nearest village. Though not quite as drastic as living in central or Western Australia though!

Good point all the same. I think I just like to take things slow. You're talking to someone who was going out for about nine years before getting married!

Don't you come at me with excuses, missie! I know you're scared, it's all very new and different and scary.


Once you're there, it's all yours. You can decorate how you see fit. Buy furniture to complement it. Stick a nail in the wall to hang a picture - no losing bond money now, it's YOUR wall.

I spent most of my life in rentals. After owning my own place, which was an enormous battle to get to, I couldn't go back.

As for working from home - well of COURSE you can. In the field you're in, in this age of wifi technology falling out of our pockets, of course you can. I've worked in places where I've had to take an hour to get to work. If you like the job, you adapt. I got thru a lot of audio books, music etc, en route.

A new journey starts with one step.

Nope. Dalek rays of doom liquefy diamonds and anything behind them.

Dalek rays of doom reflect off SPESHUL SUPAR DIAMONDS and disintegrate dalek.
