Satisfying work

Yesterday contained some good old-fashioned honest-to-goodness satisfying labour. It started with a little mending...I do like a well-executed patch.

And continued with some furious slashing and chopping - there are some stairs under here somewhere...
Oh, there they are!


There are some children in here somewhere...

Aha, there they are!


I am a little achey as a result of such frantic activity yesterday but it was so good to be there helping my very dear friend start to make some small mark on the jungle they have just purchased. It's a nerve-wracking and exciting time for them as they try and make their new home not only habitable but worth all the anxiety. There will be many more days of work and worry ahead of them before they start to see the light at the end of the tunnel but I'm sure, in the not too distant future, it will feel like home.
