This could get boring for ya!
Today we are doing more of the same sort of stuff we did yesterday.
Cleaning, de-cluttering (the storage room under the house today), general repairs around the yard and house. We have one week left till we get professional photos taken for the marketing campaign... it's gotta be all finished by next Monday.
I can't believe just how much we had to do! I thought my home was reasonably clean, and nothing much needed fixing. HA HA! I was wrong.
Tracy I can't thank you enough for recommending getting oven cleaners in! I've got them coming tomorrow afternoon. I shall not be using my oven again after that!
It's not a cheap indulgence, but for the sake of my back and hands, I'm just too happy to pay someone to do it for me.
Now, some photos from yesterday:
ABOVE: A sleeping Archer, such a cutie.
ABOVE: An indignant Dante, who yelled at me because my camera was hurting his eyes! 5 minutes later, after I'd put the camera away he was insisting I take his picture! Typical kid.
ABOVE: My brother-in-law Richard and son Vern, who is named after my brother Vern...
ABOVE: Richard's wife Olla and daughter Dewi.
Richard was married to my sister Lorraine, and they have 3 adult kids. Now he's married to Olla. He's like a real brother really, he's been in my life since I was 14. And Olla is like a true sister-in-law too. Just one of me family. Dewi and Vern are now 11 years old and are just the most gorgeous kids.
It was just so lovely to see them again yesterday. They fly home to Indonesia today.
Right, I better go, there's still plenty on my list!
LOL... I forgot an entire room, wasn't even on me list!
The 'dining room' or Archgola room. So, it's now sparkling clean and tidy. Getting heaps done today too... poor Stew.
He's outside hammering and so on.
I'm about to go down to the dungeon (under house store room) and make a start on that.
In an hour or so we will take a lunch break I think.
Time for lunch, and we are going to Sylvia Park. I want to get a few things, and hopefully we can pop in and see the kids on our way home.
It will be nice to take a break from the housework!
Our lunch break was lovely. We had lunch and did some shopping too. Got another Britto figurine, a final 'Auckland one'. Also got some more flowers for the house to make it pretty in my bedroom... *smiles*.
We visited Steve and Bex too. The boys were asleepm but we did manage a quick cuddle with Dante when he woke up.
Home... dinner.... some relaxing TV, and not much else. We are both really worn out.
End of Day: another productive day, I can actually see an end to all this prep work... I think I should have the inside of the house all done by the end of the week!
There will be stuff in the garage waiting to go into storage, but that's all I hope.
