So here we are at the end of 2011 with the customary look back over the year.
Well the best that can be said is that we’ve survived, a tough year but a definite improvement on where I thought we’d be (at the end of 2010 I envisaged me having to leave Ireland for work).
Not a great year for the animals in the household:
1 cat death from mink bite
3 hens slaughtered in coop by presumably mink &
2 dogs presumably shot
nb It’s a tough life here, known by some as as bandit country
Good news, 2 new cats are thriving:
. Planning permission granted for this gently curving house in Longford, production drawings finished just before Christmas, have gone out to tender and fingers crossed on site in spring 2012:
There are also some other lovely projects (and clients) on the books which are at different stages, some in for planning, others going out to tender and some starting on site:
Finally got round to fixing new Brabantia letter box, before and after photos below:
Well onwards and upwards, 2012 can’t be any worse than 2011? Can it?
