Today we start taking stuff over to our new Storage Unit in Botany.
As it is supposed to be a miserable, wet weekend, I doubt we will be moving any of the 'larger' items on a trailer, instead we will most likely just take over all the smaller items.
Getting anything out of here is better than nothing though! I just want all the clutter gone, gone, gone.
Totally over having to haul a dozen things out of the store room under the house to find one thing, or from under the stairs etc.
I expect we will get quite a bit done though, so I'll be happy.
I got a bit of sewing done last night, following on from doing some at class yesterday.
I got to the point where I could lay out a few bits to get an idea of how it will look:
Those pinwheel blocks are getting easier and easier to get right now too... it just takes some time to get those freakin' points right!
I've considered them a personal challenge, and I like a challenge! *smiles*
Right, I'm off to start finding stuff to shove in the car and take to the storage unit...
Bit of a mad rush on here... the bad weather is holding off so Stew has gone to get a trailer so we CAN move the bigger stuff today... Yaaaa!
It's lunchtime, and Stew's gone down the road to get something from the Hot Bread Shop, then he's going to load the trailer with garden rubbish and take it to the dump.
That will cost about $50, which is a darn sight cheaper than the $250 the guys touting for business told us they would charge us "Cheap as man"... pfffft! AS IF.
I can't believe how much we have achieved today. All the clutter is gone. All the dead and overgrown plants are gone. One of our neighbours saw Stew putting masses of agaves in the trailer for the dump and asked for them, so they scored some good plants for free. Gotta be called an EXCELLENT DAY.
I have moved quite a lot in the lounge and family/dining room too... photos tomorrow.
Stew is knackered.
Bex and Dante are asleep.
Steve is home from work and relaxing.
Brylee and Griffin are somewhere around.
All is good.
ABOVE: And... down came the rain! We sure dodged that lot this morning, so lucky.
SPARKLING: That ain't a cow! It's our pig WEATHER VANE! It only looks like it's on the neighbour's roof. lol
After dinner I went downstairs and did some sewing. Stew called out a bit later on and asked me if I was ready to come up, as it was after midnight?
WTF? How did over 4 hours go by so fast? WOW. I didn't even think I'd been down there for an hour.
So, it's bedtime I suppose. Catch ya tomorrow!
End of Day: an awesome, productive day. Very happy.
