the dempsey's are coming... well, on their way

Can you believe it, (cos I can't) it has happened. Wisdom got our letter from the bank!!! We got the call from our broker last night to tell us. So all we have to do now is pay the difference in price from the post contract variations, which we had organised with wisdom months ago, but I guess it took the bank just a little longer to cotton on :D.

I was thinking about it last night and realised that it has taken 6 months to the day. It seems like that is the standard number when it comes to getting through all of the paperwork, and it's seems silly that it only takes a few months to build. I guess it's like my dad always says " if you want to do something right, it's 90% preparation."

It's funny how excited that I have been through this whole process. From picking our colours, to having our pegs put in, to getting our port-a-loo and I am constantly saying to Mark that he doesn't seem to be getting very excited about it at all. But now the funny thing is that it seems that the roles have been reversed. I don't know if it's cos I don't want to get my hopes too high up, or cos there is soo many other crazy things going on in our life atm or even because I've been wide awake since 3:00 this morning. But I think that I am all 'excited' out. Don't get me wrong, I am still jumping on the inside but I am just not doing my usual running around like a maniac doing my ever charming (and I am sure my husband loves me for it ;D ) spastic happy dance. Can I ask? Has anyone else gone through this? Is it a permenant emotion, or is it that it's just one of those crazy 'ups and downs' moments that comes along with the joy of building? (as crazy at it is sometimes, I know that it is worth it in the end.)

So with a smile on my face and a lethargic swing in my step, I say, bugger off rain and watch out Spring Farm, the dempseys are coming... well, on their way LOL!!!


  1. Iam sure you will have several of these "up and down" moments in your life together about all different things - this is just the beginning of something very special-hang in there and enjoy every moment - even the not so good ones-love you both-m & d

  2. Fantastic news, congrats to you both. It is certainly something to feel excited about. Don't be too anxious, you are building with Wisdom. Trust me when I say that if at anytime a hiccup arises, rest assure that Wisdom will do everything to make sure it is nothing to worry about. We both wish you a speedy build.

  3. Hey thanks :) I am starting to get excited now. I think it definitely was the sleep deprivation that did it.
