The renovation list is getting bigger...

The almond trees are beautiful in full flower and there is a hint of Spring in the air.
In spite of this I am tired and feeling blue.

Our shower leaks through the wall so I need to rip the tiles off, water proof and tile it properly.
Same with the upstairs shower.

When the plumber looked into the issue I had with the main toilet he discovered it has been double trapped and there is an air lock issue that can't be fixed without jackhammering the cement floor and doing the plumbing again.

I have leaking taps, blocked gutters and still need to organise the new septic that Council have told us we need.

My kitchen sink water does not get away very well and to fix it we need to plumb it into the new line.

I am not feeling motivated and it is ganging up a bit.
I still love it here in spite of all these issues.

Oh dear. I can sympathise. I don't know if you remember, but I had a slump a few months after we moved. I was tired, the high I'd been on for months had gone, we'd seemed to have worked really hard, yet still had so far to go. Remember to sit back and enjoy your beautiful patch of land. Your motivation will come back eventually and it wont seem so bad xxx My almond tree doesn't even look close to flowering. I wonder if it's dead!
