First up for the day, some photos of our outdoor endeavors from yesterday:
ABOVE: I had fun directing where everything went out the back. I will be taking out all the buxus and camelia plants and putting in native grasses, agave's and succulents.
ABOVE: The back yard. It's a gorgeous area.
ABOVE: looking back at the house... there's more to the right but it wouldn't fit in! I might have to invest in a wide angle lens.
ABOVE: To the right is our bedroom, with a concrete area where I've put the two chairs and a little white table. What you can't see is the two racks of washing on the concrete too. lol
ABOVE: His nibs taking a break. It didn't last long before he was off doing the next task.
The guys have several jobs lined up. Getting shelves in the 'new' linen cupboard, a dog door in the internal garage door, and hopefully they will get the new clothes line up.
While all that is going on, Bex and I will do some smaller jobs around the house, while looking after the little boys.
ABOVE: Pictures are slowly getting hung...
ABOVE: working, working....
ABOVE: Yaaa... a dog door in the internal garage door. Now we can keep that door closed to keep in the warmth, and the dogs can come and go from the house to the garage, to outside. THANKS STEVE, you just earned your dinner!
ABOVE: Kelly gave me a house warming gift... the very cute blue star picture. She used assorted blue buttons... very nice. THANKS Kelly.
So grateful ... the guys got all of this weekend's jobs done.
- The dogs can come and go from the house to the yard now.
- We will have a usable clothes line by tomorrow night.
- We have a new 'linen cupboard'.
- We have a lovely wood shelf in our bedroom to match the one that was already in there.
- My PC is up and running, but we need to get a booster so it will work faster.
I have hung 90% of the paintings and so on, so the house is really starting to feel like 'home' now.
4.36 pm and we are all winding down and relaxing for the rest of the day.
I'm cooking dinner, something simple like sausages and veges, then Steve, Bex and the boys will be going home to Auckland.
Dinner went well... I'm really enjoying the new kitchen... SO MUCH ROOM!
All quiet here now, everyone is in bed and I'm about to go too.
