I know we don't even have the Archgola yet, but I am starting to gather a few things that are going in it.
Like... mostly nautical bits 'n' bobs:
ABOVE: A few of my nautical treasures from around the house. I am sure I will hunt out more.
Today the kids and I are going down to Manukau, I would like to find some cheap white baskets to put under the Marble Top Unit to hold stuff like tableclothes and placemats.
That will free up a little room in the over crowded linen cupboard.
That's ANOTHER job I have to do AGAIN. I swear my linen multiplies on it's own. It's spilling out of the freakin' cupboard!
I also plan on finishing off those two extra boards today, weather permitting. I think the forecast was for the odd shower? That would be good as the ground is already bone dry... it's like lumpy concrete when you kneel on it.
Suppose one shouldn't kneel on it then eh? *smiles*
Right, I'll bugger off for now and get the kids outta bed.
Fook it's SO HOT today! The kids and I went out and about, but after only an hour or so we were done with being outside.
I did manage to find some containers for my linen, but not white cane, there's none around, so I opted for these instead:
ABOVE: I probably got more than I needed, but I can use the spare ones on the wall unit, once it comes back from storage.
ABOVE: I got this as well. I couldn't resist. It's rather cute.
ABOVE : after petrol prices skyrocketing over the past couple of years, up to $2.24 a litre ... can you believe it is now $1.57.9 !!! Amazing. I filled up me car and it cos $88, before it was costing up to $130! I'm rapt.
I hope it lasts.
Lunchtime. Then I'm tidying up the linen, then putting the last (white) coat on the beams.
I text'd the Archgola man (Paul) to see when we might expect to see him... and he said end of next week! *squeals*
I am so excited. I have everything 'placed' in the space already.
AND the best thing is I can get all our stuff out of storage too, cos quite a bit of it is going in the new dining room. The rest I will squeeze in the house and store room under the house again. That will be a saving of $120 a month for me. Yaaa.
Just finished tidying up the linen cupboard, with Bex's help it didn't take as long. But so drained now... sweat running down everywhere. So gross.
End of Day: well it didn't rain.... dammit. We did get one really big, black/grey cloud come over late afternoon, but it fizzled into nothing.
I can't believe how freakin' sticky hot it is at the moment. Sure makes doing ANYTHING hard.
Time to hit the sack, another hot day expected tomorrow. Oh ya.
