Review of 2020 is what we do at this time of year
Review of 2020 is important to our plans for the New Year. Even in WA where we’ve had minimal impact, Covid has prompted us to review our lifestyle in many ways. How did you spend the time we had in lock-down?
Many people established vegetable growing, composting and home improvements. If you’re still thinking of taking up the building grants, you might like to consider a smaller property to invest in high quality materials like double-glazed, argon-filled windows which keep out the heat, and the cold.
I have added a living area to my little garden flat to down-size into.
Review of 2020 is time well spent as it reveals just how much has been achieved.
This puts your year into perspective.
From the depths to the heights which you’ve had to stretch, you’ve probably created a new reality.
Floorboards from Alma Rd, North Perth, built around 1900. A few boards from before 1900!
Bricks removed, cleaned and re-used on footings and roof elevation.
Dramatic rain storms necessitated Floor & Roof plastic covering many of the nights.
As carpenters finished the last window frame, and before the last downpipe was connected, in less than 40 minutes an inch of rain flooded the floor and underfloor insulation.
This year was challenging in so many ways!
Review of 2020 shows the Resilience we have developed

By the week before Christmas the heat arrived forcing us to render inside the coolness of strawbale walls. Most of the outside has a second coat of render and coverings, so we can relax for a week. It was wonderful to share the achievements with the extended family on Christmas Day.
Remember to help your loved ones do their Review of 2020 to see how much they have achieved despite the challenges like not being able to visit family in other parts of the world. This the saddest part of Covid for many of us, especially when my wonderful aunt is 97.5 years old. Thank goodness for the telephone, because many of our older family haven’t taken up the internet.
