We finally got the new room built downstairs. We'd planned to get it done before Christian arrived, then we just kept putting it back, but it's finally done. We had a large L-shaped living room before, so we've cut the extra bit off and now just have a square room.

End of the first day
I've got plenty of decorating to do. I'm working on Ryan's room, the nursery and the hallway all at once, just a little each day, and eventually I'll do the lounge too.
I am a 32 year old mother with 3 children. After years of trying to escape our deprived urban neighbourhood, we finally moved to a leafy, farmland-surrounded town a year ago. Now I'm really taking the plunge and am starting a smallholding from scratch.
