Well Chris now has the bandage and dressing off his leg, is demonstrating a very impressive scab and newly formed scar and is very happy that he can now shower on two legs without cling film. Still not full mobility, but much better and no more trips to the surgeon.

A healthy Chris means work has begun apace on the house once more, well as quickly as one person can do all of the time consuming jobs that need to be done.  Chris is spending a few days a week doing the final outside coats of rendering. One outside wall is now complete so only 3 to go. Meanwhile we are prepping the window and door area's so that they are ready for the windows and doors to be put in once they arrive. They have been being built for the last 3 months so we are hoping that they will be arriving in the next few weeks which will be very exciting.

Meanwhile, the last four beams were installed today internally, I haven't seen them yet, so very excited to go home and have a look. These are four huge beams which add some extra strength to the internal frame on the first floor level. They are beautifully hand jointed and oiled like the rest of the beams so I'm sure they are going to look great. It now means we can start putting the floor joists in and get the first floor in shape so the electricians can come and do the roughing in of the electrics. We can't do the inside rendering until the electrics are done, nor can we do the final bit of straw baling in the roof eaves at either end until the floor is done. I'm really not sure why Chris can't work faster.....

Anyway, it is a long weekend this weekend. as it is ANZAC day on Monday. In our house that means remembering the Canadians as well as the Aussies and New Zealanders.  Next time Chris tries to be a smart arse with you, just ask him why we remember the Canadians and that will shut him up (if it doesn't ask him what he thinks ANZAC stands for, he seems to think the last "AC" stands for "And Canada" not "Army Corps" and no one can persuade him otherwise....).

Heroic! Surprising what can be done on one and half legs.
The Canadians avoided Gallipoli, left all the gore and glory for the brave Antipodeans and their stoic English allies.

We shared in a glass of Moose Milk yesterday as we remembered our Canadian comrades and pondered the true meaning of ANZACs.
