It looks like it is going to be worth the wait. The majority of the cottage deck was completed today with just the finishing touches and painting left for tomorrow. It seem to be working out really well. We have put seating around two edges which also acts as a barrier so people don't fall off the edge and now we just have to decide whether to cut a hole for a plant or not.... tomorrow morning is decision day!
But for now I need to write a letter.... another of my son's teeth fell out today and despite the fact that it is much easier to throw the tooth under the floor (Japanese tradition) than write a letter to the tooth fairy the temptation of money won out again and now the tooth fairy needs to do her magic. How many teeth can two children possibly lose?
