Dragspelhuset



This is the expanding, cedar shingle covered Dragspelhuset (Accordian House) by 24h architecture as seen here. You know how much I want my house covered in cedar shingles, and this organic curvy look is right up my street, though obviously my house is geometric, but I can wiggle them so they are laid in a wavy way. Meant to post this weeks ago but never had the time... 'til today - I'm officially free of my hideous job!

They suck big time in their, never even left a note to say goodbye or anything. At my official redundancy meeting I joked that I knew the 120 staff from my department were hiding in a darkened room with flowers and cards - joke didn't go down well. Such a humourless manager. And incompetent. And rude. It costs nothing to be polite, or at least civil.

This is very exciting as it means pizza and wine for me tonight. I've been so good, not had pizza in years, but I used to say that if I ever left work I'd celebrate with pizza so I can't wait for this evening.

Now I can concentrate on my health, my home and - hopefully, my own business (longer term). That's got to be a good thing. Thanks for all the messages of support from you lovely bloggers. You are the best.

Dear Cally,

Somehow I missed your hydrangea post with its serene photo and lovely news.

I wish you so well with this new bend in the road. I feel quietly excited for you....each time my husband or I have been taken a step like this, it has been rewarded with enough and I hope the same for you!

Pizza is ALWAYS the perfect choice for those moments in our life when new paths beckon . .

All happiness to you!!

Good luck with your new life Cally, you sound like you are well out of that job anyway. I hope the wine and pizza went down a treat last night!! Marley will be happy to have you around more I'm sure. Love the cedar-shingled Accordian House. I'd like a wooden house - we live in one made of clay lump! (clay-mud and straw and pebbles and goodness know what else) It's a traditional building material for old cottages here in E.Anglia

Thanks to all of you, I'm really pushed for time so I'm struggling to do my blue post thing and still visit everyone's bogs, but I really do enjoy and appreciate all your comments. xxx
