Sorry, I have been slack, and storing my posts up, and never getting around to posting them, until now.
My parents live on a small farm, about 20 minutes from here. They have a few sheep, an alpaca and a couple of cats. Oh, and a fierce working dog who isnt overly friendly. My stepdad like to dabble in being a farmer, with a crop of something.
My mum, having grown up on a farm, isnt too keen on being a farmer, but puts up with it, as she loves her little sewing group. She, however doesnt love their house. It is small, old, needing repair, and A LOT more storage for her quilting stuff.
They have been toying with the idea of building a house since moving out there, so around 7 years now. This morning I had the strangest phone call.
Mum: Order me a house
Mum: Rick said to just get the plans for a house and get it built
Me: Okaaaay, shouldnt you do that together
Mum: You're better at that stuff
Me: So i can choose any house (suddenly I am having visions of building my dream house, and plotting how to ship my parents off to a nursing home in a few years...just joking ;) )
Me: what kind of house? Brick or weatherboard? How many bedrooms/living rooms/bathrooms/etc?
Mum: Brick, enough to keep me happy.
Officially the weirdest phone call ever.
But I am off to chose their house to build. Wonder if i get to decorate it too ;)
