I am married to a builder……….
My husband is honestly one of the hardest working men I know between his work as a stonemason, his farming and being a brilliant dad to the two wee men however……this leads me to a conversation myself and my colleague had recently. Three reasons you would know im married to a builder…….she concurs by the way!
1 – Tools, tools tools…..
2 – Work wear
At this stage I could sell Hi-viz vests, the kids love trying them on (!!). He owns more wear wear than casual clothes….think this page from Engelbert Strauss his brand of choice, they are everywhere. To be fair it makes the present buying easy, the washing not so much! For any other farming mamas out there, they do a great range of kids protective clothes. Something which I am very strict on when they are out on the farm.
3- Our house is never finished
I’m not complaining…. but our house is never finished. We undertook a mammoth renovation project when we bought our new house 2 years ago and its still on going, extending up and out and all the rest. He loves to keep working on the house basically because he can. I love his vision and his resolve to give me the house of my dreams. Im currently waiting on a beautiful kitchen from Cherrymore to arrive. Hopefully by Christmas we will be done!
