Hubby's new hide away.

This is my view as I write this blog post. The hubby and his current WIP, his workshop. 

This is also where he has spent the majority of his Christmas holidays.
 At the beginning of the holidays it was just a hole he'd knocked into the back of his garage, with garden and sky where he now stands and so he has been a very busy bee. With a little help from friends and family. 
So why am I out here working? Well if I wanna see my husband at all right now, then this is my only hope, but bless him, he brought out a comfy chair, footrest and even created a little desk for me too. Now that's love! 

Ok so it's a little bit dusty and a little on the chilly side right now, but with a warm coat it's not so bad. I've worked in far worse spots. 

I've got a feeling I may need to get used to it too, as the anniversary gift of a steam engine I got Dan last year will be living out here along side the lathe I got him for Christmas and as a result, Dan will,
 I suspect, be practically living out here too. 

Dan's been able to enjoy a pretty expensive Christmas this year, with the cost of materials for his workshop and all his new toys too, but I can honestly say he deserves it. What he does for this family is amazing.

Working hard everyday, allowing me to stay home and chase my dreams. He's also supported me emotional through a whole lot these last 11 odd years and I don't think I will ever be able to thank him enough. 

He is my everything and I am so pleased that I can finally give him some of the things he's always longed for. 

So here's to the best man I've ever known. My Rock! Dan Solheim :) 

Who deserves to be spoiled in your life and why? Have you ever done something big or surprising for someone you loved? If you could, money no object, what would you treat the ones you love to? Feel free to share in the comments.

Love and hugs

  1. Aw, what a sweetie! You're a lucky woman. Good luck to him on his "WIP." :)

    1. Yes he is and I am indeedy lol. He said to say thanks also :)

  2. So sweet. My hubby would love a hide-away of his own. I'd give him his dream one if I could. Happy New Year! :)

    1. Awwww I'm sure you'll be able to one day. Believe it or not quitting smoking was what has saved us enough money to get his done. Best choice we ever made :)
