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…

Everything is crisp, and the sun is shining, and everything just looks beautiful out in the world this morning.

Brokers, Cleaning and a Container.

We went into the Brokers office on Thursday afternoon and signed all the docs that we needed to for the Farm, so that was a pretty momentous moment in time! We’ve also already started packing up stuff that we wont need for the next 6-12 months, so that once the shipping container arrives, we can … Read more…

Waiting is HARD!

This week has been a week of getting quotes back from various electrical suppliers, checking them against each other – and now haggling with our preferred supplier, to get to price that we are comfortable with and can afford, but that it’s still very much fair to the contractor. We’ve also had a preliminary quote … Read more…

Our First Working Bee.

A rare Sunday of no appointments, so today we popped on some work clothes, grabbed the garden gloves, mower, whipper-snipper and packed up our thermos, some coffee, a few munchies, some milk, and our cups, and stuck it all in the ute (whos name is Zane incase you’re wondering!) and headed out to ‘the Farm’ do … Read more…
