Why are we here?

Why are we here??!!!! is going through my mind quite a bit recently. And not the existential why but, Why are we here? In Ireland? we’ve left friends and family and travelled here to live in a little cottage which is driving me insane at times because it’s so messy and not done, and we still haven’t got the bathroom or dining room or kitchen done in the slightest or painted upstairs or ….aaaaagh. Calm yourself woman. It is fine.

And?!! what am I doing for God?? That may be tackled (or may not be) in a different post.

It is very messy, tools etc all over what will be the dining room, the bathroom isn’t messy, but still have a plaster tub as a bath. Which we have to fill with a shower attachment and then empty with a container. It does the job though, it is a bath. No sides to work on in the kitchen, but you do sort of get used to it.. although if anyone comes in at the same time as me when I’m cooking, I can get a little what is known as ‘sharp’… all the non fridge/freezer food is stored in a grey plastic box in the living room, baking ingredients in a different plastic box.

It will get done, the truth is that Chris is out of the house more than 11 hours a day (correction- 10 hours) from Monday to Friday, his work is tiring and he’s had a mountain of jobs to do as well as this. The cars kept breaking and he has mended them himself, he’s had to leave the green house whilst he’s been doing the cars and then the weather has been vile since, so he hasn’t been able to do what he wanted to do on the green house. It’s been hard for him. It will get done, in time.. I try to get bits done but it doesn’t always work very well. The house is dry, warm, nice to live in on the whole…but the clutter!!! aaaagh…

It’s quite an experience. Going to God with it all is always quite helpful. 🙂 (understatement), as is getting outside.
