sometimes when I start thinking, i feel a little worried about Villa Maria. when I go there, to unpack boxes into my art studio or Sacred room.. I don't feel as if there is life in Villa Maria. it feels cold, lonely & unloved. Maybe I am expecting too much too soon. Maybe it is because it is still a 'building site'. Maybe it will take living there for some time before I will feel that the house is loved. It took quite awhile for Inglewood to feel sacred and peaceful. lots of sageing, bell ringing & tibetan bowl singing. many rituals & prayers. many family gatherings.. when i go to Villa Maria to work, I tell her that I love her & cannot wait to live there. I burn candles and incense and listen to Gregorian chants. Hopefully she will absorb this energy and love that I lavish on her..

the final touches to the bathroom have started. the past weekend was a flurry of activity. Chris arrived bright and early to connect the taps and install the bath.
Chris was quite excited. He is a fully trained tradesman now but this was his first claw-foot bath that he has installed by himself.
smile for my blogging friends, Chris!
manoeuvring the bath down the narrow hall and around corners was a little tricky.. but it is nicely installed now. all we are waiting on is the shower screen to be installed - but at least we have a functioning bathroom for when we move.. now all I need is new towels.. what colour? Oh and some Miss Robyn finishing touches of course.. all in due time.
