Tradie Central

Last week I had the electricians in for 2 days, rewiring the lights, upgrading the power board and making everything safe. We had to remove the old lights as they weren't safe with old wiring.

The plumbers removed the old oil heater after much comedy capers the thing finally came out. They are back today to fit my new kitchen appliances. YAY!!

We have the gas company replacing the pipes as we had a gas leak, not sure how long that had been going on with the old lady living there but they moved very quick as it was extremely unsafe.

We inherited the table, not sure what to do with it yet.

Brown doors

Become white


The carpets came up yesterday.
We love the timber floor.
Notice the heater is finally gone.


With no time to scratch, we've been falling into bed around 9.30 each night exhausted.

Andy heads over to the house at 7am to let the tradesmen in, then off to work. I get the girls off to school then spend the day at the house till school pick up. I then take the girls to after school activities, make dinner, put the girls to bed, then do more packing to take boxes to Doris in the morning. Andy comes home from work for dinner, then back over to Doris for more work, then back home at 9.30. Then it all starts again the next day and so on, but we are making progress. We will be moving in this coming weekend and sleeping on our camping beds till our big furniture comes over on Monday.

Pat yourselves on the back- you have done so much in such a short time. The paintjob is looking fantastic and those floorboards look glorious. Makes the whole place smell better with fresh paint and getting rid of grungy old carpet. Our walls are filthy and I feel like I'm finally getting rid of all the energy from the previous owners with every coat of paint I slap on. Hope your move goes smoothly. melx
