Busy, busy, busy!

A bit of a delayed update – ‘cos we’ve been busy lil (ok – maybe not so lil!) Wimmin over the last few days or so – our apologies! So it was out to the block bright and early on Friday, to open the shed for Justin (by now you should know he’s the electrician!) so … Read more…

The tap runneth over.

TaaaaaDaaaaaa Another exciting Monday was cast upon us – with Justin and Danny (the Electrician & Plumber) having been out at Strigidae with all manner of diggers, trucks and such – and when we went out on Monday evening after work, the power and water pipes had all been run to the corner of the … Read more…

Weed-whacking & Plan #84

Saturday saw us down at Bunnings, picking up our new loo and bathroom sink, as well as a few other ‘essential’ items – and then it was off to the farm for a bit of a working bee. The slasher man has been and mown earlier in the week, but obviously couldn’t follow boundary-line directions, … Read more…

The Wobbles

If anyone happens to have read my angsty little grumble the other day about how much I have ahead of me to do, and was a bit worried or was thinking it unfair that I had so much to do ‘by myself’ – well DONT!! We all have days now and then when we feel … Read more…

Mid week visits.

And then THIS happened…. Yesterday afternoon we took a trip out to the Farm, to have a look at how the floor had cleaned up. We’d also scored a bargain of a whole pile of ceramic pots of various sizes – at $20 for them all, so the back of the truck was full of them, … Read more…

Productive Monday

Today has been a nicely productive day. 1) The soil-tester folks went out and did the testing today – a day earlier than expected (!!) which means we are a step closer to knowing what options we will have in front of us regarding a septic system. 2) Very informative talks were had with Terry … Read more…

The best laid plans…

Another weekend has come and gone – and whilst we didn’t quite achieve what we had initially hoped to – we did get a decent bit of work done out at the Farm. We’d hired one of those floor-scrubber thingys, so on Sunday morning we packed up the truck with that on board, plus the … Read more…

A clean-up up-cycle win.

We’ve hired a floor-scrubber thingy from Saturday pm to Monday am, so this afternoon we went out to the Farm to tidy up a bit and remove the majority of the stuff we’re currently storing in the shed, in readiness for hopefully getting a good bit of the floor scrubbed clean tomorrow. We inherited some … Read more…

Skipping with joy.

Happiness is: the delivery of a skip-bin to our house. We finally sold one of the cars yesterday (tho it was a bit sad to see our soft-top baby go), so last night we emailed our buddy Gavin to drop off a bin when he was next in town – now that we have somewhere … Read more…
