Set in concrete.

This week the builders poured the concrete slab for our extensions-finally! A week of rain delays do not the happy renovator make! Luckily the weather on the day was good though, and as soon as I got home from work Michael and I went out the back to have a little look-see and proceeded to vandalise the beautiful, neat concrete work.

Our initials in the pretty new concrete

Cute, hey? The reality of it is that these initials will likely be polished clean out when the polishers go through, but what the hell, it's the thought that counts. At least I have a picture to prove it was there, and we chose a little corner that will be under a kitchen cabinet anyway just in case it doesn't polish out.

It's a bit wonky- the concrete had nearly dried, the only tool on hand was a little twig I had picked up off the ground and it was dark, but having a little token love-heart etched into the foundations of our home forever makes it special to us.
