We have a lot of work to go yet but when I get all of the new curtains up n the front wndows I will finally show you all a picture of the whole house.
Thats it for now ... I don't know what I was thinking but I decided to have New Years here so I have some organising to do and probably some drinks and nibbles will be in order.
Take care and be safe. Type soon!

After a lot of running around like a headless chook we found that with all the rain our gutters had over flown into the roof and down the wall :^((
I spoke to the builder who rushed straight over (to make sure it wasn't his fault) and he has fixed the problem for now. I rang the insurance and an assessor will be out Monday afternoon.
They recommended that we get and electrician out to check the wiring immediately so we did He looked and checked everything out and said it was ok to turn the power back on which was good. He has left the power point hanging out of the wall so that it has some aitr circulating. He has insulated it so that little hands can't get zapped but we still moved a few things around to be safe.
After many hours and a few tears we decided to move H in and take our chances since it looks like everything will be ok. FINGERS CROSSED!!!
I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and if you don't celebrate Christmas then have a nice day ! MWAH

Do you think she is happy? Ecstatic nearly describes how happy she is. She had furniture lined up from her room to the extension. I had to push it back in for now and distract her with half an hour on the play station so Dad could finish painting the outside of her door frame. He was being very good about leaning out of the way as she carried her drawers and stereo in, truly something only a grandpa would do.
Thats it for now so take care and have a very Merry Christmas!

We are also the proud new carers of 3 more chickens! We were down to 2 girls so when I heard there were 3 looking for a home I thought why not. Hopefully the ducks will be relocating to their new home soon and we can get the vegetable garden up and running again.
Thats it for now so take care type later!

On the weekend we picked up the paint and filled all the nail holes in the skirting boards and window frames. D, M and A did a good job of sanding in the front room and today Dad is in there with his sander whizzing through the rest of the rooms. I bet they wish they had thought of using our sander instead of crawling around with a piece of sandpaper lol oh well live and learn!
Al has finished H's drawers and they look fantastic! She is soooo happy and can't wait to use them. I need to polish the handles but i'm not sure what to use. Any ideas for me? They are brass but appear to have a protective coating on the front where the cameo is. Will post a pic when I get my card reader back from my darling husband.
Thats it for now

When I finally got home ( just in time to get the kids) I found builders business card in the door. Will have to ring tomorrow and see what he wants...Maybe I should make HIM wait for a change :^D
Nahhhh I have to ring him to get the electrician back. When I turned the bathroom light on tonight it started flashing and when I went back to the switch it was making sizzling noises. I went straight out the front and turned the lighting circuit off because I did NOT like that sound.
The best Dad in the whole wide world has undercoated and painted the ceiling in the 2 bedrooms and the toilet. I have asked my colour consultant (aka Mandy) to help me pick a colour for my family room/kitchen. Then it will be off to the paint shop AGAIN to give them more money.
Hope you are all well
