I think i must be mad

Just spent months planning and making things for the wedding, Had a nice rest on Sunday and what has happened today.
We have the builders in,knocking walls down to make the kitchen bigger and also to make a downstairs shower room and toilet for my mum, they have just left, the house is full of brick dust and tomorrow they have to knock down another wall, we have moved into mums while all the mess is going on.
worse thing the rooms that we are bashing about is right under my craft room, you should see all the surfaces in my craft room it looks like one of those old haunted house that no one has been in for years and is full of dust, my poor papers cant work in it until the demolition work is finished then i will need a soapy bowl of water.
But it will be worth it i the end, I hope
