A Kipling Reno

A Kipling Reno
1942 - 2013
God gives all men all earth to love,
But, since man's heart is small,
Ordains for each one spot shall prove
Beloved over all.

No easy hope or lies
Shall bring us to our goal,

But iron sacrifice
Of body, will and soul.

There is nothing left to-day
But steel and fire and stone!

Though all we knew depart,
In courage keep your heart,

In strength lift up your hand.

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
You, too, can be like Lim and Kiz and renovate four houses in five years!

Excellent photos Candy! I think it looks better last week than this week.....!

Lots to do, lots to do. We are on the countdown now to move in date - 31st July. Am looking forward to at least a working kitchen and bathroom..... Can we do it though? Watch this space....
