Since moving in to a house of our own in March, we have been making huge improvements. Shelves up in the kitchen, racks in the garage, I even built a retaining wall in the back yard. Now Sammy has started paving the side of the house, ready for a shed and veggie tub. It’s great watching the changes, and seeing the fruit of the hard labour. Buying a house of our own makes for a huge difference in what you can do to it, without having to ask for permission first.
