It started on the 20th, when we finally got our electricity hooked up...a big moment since we've been waiting for a year. Then came the water...this was also terribly exciting until the developer noticed a cascade of water coursing down our back splash. This was not good. One of the screws from the upper cabinets had perforated the water line. So down came the upper cabinets (that I had just finished filling with dishes - so much for the 'touch once' rule!) and then a hole was hammered in the wall to access the water line. The screw had hit perfectly in the centre of the line...you couldn't have done it that perfectly if you'd tried.

So now we are nicely ensconced in the "castle" as one friend calls it. (I prefer aerie, but who am I to say??).

The point of all this? Life gets in the way of plans. When interviewing for a job, I always hated the question "where do you see yourself in five years?". Seriously, 'stuff' gets in the way of my plans every week and you want me to predict something half a decade out? Impossible! (At least for me, I'm usually jealous (and slightly suspicious) of people who have that much control over their lives.)
