I know, I know, another Blog entry....

Ahem, I believe it has now been 5 years between Blog entries, Daniel is almost 6 and Jacob, oh yes, we had another boy, is 3 and a half. I am not sure if 5 years is a record between posts but I gather most of my followers have either passed on to pastures new, have passed into the blue yonder or have dropped me as a friends for being the most un-active and boring NW member. We had a storm today..... That's all I have to add. Thanks for listening, see you in 5.

Blimey, A Year Already

Well I have just read my last blog entry and realised that I never actually gove everyone the wonderful news via my blog *slaps forehead*! Well I can of course confirm that Daniel was born a year to the day. He had his Birthday Party on Saturday and it was a quietish affair attended by family and friends. I have quickly come to the conclusion that buying toddlers expensive presents with a fine array of sparkly colours and fantastically lifelike noises is pointless. I have never seen a child ge

Time Has Come!

It seems like less than a week since I gave you all the false alarm scare with the possible delivery of Baby Dazza. Well at 2.30am this morning Mrs Dazza's waters broke so we headed off to the hospital. Mrs Dazza is now on a ward and I got shipped home at 6am. After having no sleep I am on my way back to the hospital with a list of gatherings which Mrs Dazza has sent to me via text (this is over and above the Hospital bag she already has). At time of writing Mrs Dazza has not as yet gone

Is It Time?

Well Mrs Dazza has gone into hyper mode this morning, cleaning windows, washing up, mopping, doing things she's been putting off for months. Is it all symptoms of nesting! Mrs Dazza was sent to the Hospital during the week by our Obstetrician to have some steriod injections. We were told during our Antenatal appointments that you will normally be given Steroid injections if it was thought you may go into premature labour , you can imaging what was going through our mind at the time. Now Mrs D

Bad Dazza - no Blog for ages.

Dear NW - It has been 3 months since my last [s]confession[/s] Blog entry! I feel I have let all of my Blog followers down, A scan photo had been requested and several occassions and I made promises that I did not meet, and for this I apologise. Mrs Dazza is getting bigger by the day and a couple of nights ago I received my first kick. Mrs Dazza had been dissapointed that I hadn't felt any of the kicks she had been experiencing and I think it was getting her down to be honest. I therefore de

New House new...

Well they do say that a new house brings new beginnings and as it has been a while since I made my last blog entry, so I felt that now was a time as good as any to spread some new news. Mrs Dazza and I visited the hospital this morning, for what is our 12 week scan....... Yep, you guessed it, at long last there is a baby Dazza on the way We have been through the usual, who do we tell, when do we tell them, yada yada, but we feel that now the 12 week period is past that we can be a little mor

Christmas came early...

Well it's official, Christmas came early for the Dazza household. We moved into our new home on the 1st December and now have many further years of trying to get it right!! I hope to post some final photo's soon, well as soon as we have tidied the house up anyway. Thanks for all your kind comments everyone and your support throughout all the trouble we had. I would like to take this opportunity to wish all my Blog followers a very Happy Christmas and I hope you all have a great one. Bye for now

Getting there...

Well it's been a long old wait but we're finally getting there. After all of the trouble with the utilities we finally have them in. Believe it or not they both kept their word and the Water was in on the 2nd October and the Electricity on the 11th. We should have the heating on this coming week (although we are still awaiting the glass for the front door - as you can see, but we hope that will be here by the end of the week). The ground works have also been completed and the mounds of earth r

Hindered by Utilities

Well we are really pushing on with the house now and we appeared to be making super progress (but then the bureaucratic public services bureau got in the way!). The Plasterer has completely finished, the Plumber has been in and finished and we have even had the finished floor level put in, so it now feels a lot more homely. We were hoping to have the heating on to dry things out properly so we can get in and start to put a white wash on the newly plastered walls, the only thing is we need Wate

Also available in Colour

Stopped at the house on the way home last night to see if the Plasterers had finished the inside of the house ready for the Plumber and definately had to do a double take. Our house has sprung some colour! Mrs Dazza picked the finish for the house and I hadn't even seen a picture of the colour, but low and behold it hit me straight in the face when I spotted it. I actually like it very much and as such Mrs Dazza had a lovely grin on her face all night, as she felt delighted that she got somethi

A slight change

Popped out to the house on the way home this evening as the sun was shining and it was a glorius evening. Whilst looking at the front of the house I noticed it looked different but wasn't sure why. See if you can tell between the snap below and yesterdays photos: Oh and also I heard a customer fell through a glass table at work today and needed 3 stitches at the hospital. Oh well, hey ho, that's the company sued to the hilt. No doubt it will close down, so its just as well I am leaving at t

What a difference 2 months makes.

I can't believe it's been 2 months since my last update. We have now picked our Kitchen and Bathroom suite and I have been unduly slated for the amount of AV sockets I have installed in the Living Room by everyone who has been out to the house for a 'look' without being invited. I now have a list of who is banned from visiting us in the future. That's most of Mrs Dazza's family banned anyway. So here are the latest photo's which were taken yesterday: and one from the front looking in..

Drum roll..... It's another update.

These photo's were taken last Saturday. Looks tiny from the front, which I am well pleased about, as this was stipulated in our planning permission being granted, but it obviously all happens as you go back into the house and beyond. As you can see we now have a roof a semi completed Garage and internal doorframes (not pictured). We are hoping to have windows in within the next few weeks too . Here's the photees:

Latest Update

Things are really shifting now. Looks like we'll be ready for the roof soon! We also have an outside toilet in a lovely shade of Blue, as donated by the hard working builders............. Anyway, here's the photees: The house from an alternative angle to the norm: The house from the front in full view: The Garage (seeing as its a new addition):

Housey Update.

Well as Beka has asked for it here's the latest house build update. I gave it a break for a couple of weeks as I have been sooooo busy, but here's the latest photo's to add to your gallery! Latest view from the front Looking down the side via the Sun Room View from the back end! (of the Kitchen towards the back door) Looking in through the front door I decided to climb the scaffold to get an overall perspective of the upstair space that we hope to convert in the future.

House Build Update 14 April 2007

Took the opportunity to visit the site again this morning quite early seeing as it was sooooo nice out there . I have taken some more pictures to share with you all (especially Beka). From the naked eye it doesn't look like much has been done, but the builders are at the same level all round now (except the conservatory) and they have also started the secondary internal wall blocks. I also have a dilema. We have a river running down the side of the property (see photo's). I would dearly like

The wheels have started to move....

Well it's been a while since my last entry , anyway, we gave the house build over to a contractor last week and he stated that it would be a few months before he could start, which we thought was fine as it gives us some time to get a few things sorted. Mrs Dazza passed our site today and witnessed the concrete footing being poured , as much as we are grateful for the quick start, it has taken us back a bit..... Anyway must run as I now have a million things to do in a week. I have decided

It's Official....

Well everyone, it's now official. We have sold . We have received the dosh (sort of) and the house is no longer ours :blush: It nearly never happened yet again, even though we had their signed contracts but that's a story for another day. Anyway, lets just say that our solicitor and her assistant are no longer speaking to me, but hey, why should Mrs Dazza & I be the only victims of one persons incompetance. The solicitor wouldn't even allow us to go and collect our house sale proceeds,

There's no stopping her.....

Mrs Dazza is off work today and asked me to get together a list of house related stuff for her to do today. I gave her a list as long as my arm (and there were no complaints, just excitement) and as I type she is no doubt either challenging a builder , fighting with the bank about a new mortgage, or in with the solicitor signing documents. She's sooooooooo excited, as long as she keeps up the momentum I can sit back and relax (I wish).

We're on a roll

I have just spoken to our solicitors assistant and she has advised that they have received the signed contract in today . The contract outlines a completion date of 16th January :blush: , they want us to do something else for them but it isn't a condition of contract , what should we do?

Still waiting....

Well our buyers stated they would contact me yesterday to let me know what they are doing. I have heard nothing and think it might be a tad too early to start chasing them? All this waiting is doing my nut. Mrs Dazza has been getting so excited over the weekend over the hope of completion and as such has started to look at new bathroom suites, furniture etc (WE DON'T HAVE WALLS YET), still there's no harm in enquiring I suppose. I also got home from work to find our bed looking like something ou

Putting my foot right in it.

Well as you all may know we have been swaying too and fro with the whole house disaster situation. Well I sent a text to our buyers yesterday to give them some grief as to what they are doing now that Christmas is over. Low and behold I get a text back saying can't really talk now. Mum died yesterday. Funeral is tommorow, i'll speak to you at the beginning of the week . I didn't know what to say! Those of you who had been reading my blog will have known that the mum was poorly, but still!

Pre New Year blues

Well the New Year is almost upon us, and yes, owing to the storm that has been passing over us today all our guests have cancelled. There is a stash of booze to be drunk and tonnes of food to be eaten, so looks like the remainder of the night will be filled by getting drunk and fat. Well a Happy New Year to you all.

Is there a ray of hope in the horizon?

Well I had a phone call a couple of days ago about the house and lets just say it was the most positive phone call I have had in the last 20 months in relation to it. I won't say too much at the moment, but there may be some breaking news in the next 12 months. Oh, and in case you are wondering, YES, I STILL HAVE A COLD.
