Home and Dry

It's been a long journey but we've now got to the end of it and we've finally moved into our new home. We 'settled' (paid the final installment) on it on 23rd April and moved the remainder of our furniture in on Monday 11th May. All in all it's been a roller coaster ride of highs and a few lows.
We've only just had our water tank installed today 14th May because our building Company were having troubles with the handover to a new supplier. We're just waiting for some much needed rain to fill it.
All that's left to do is to landscape the front and back gardens which could be a bit of a challenge as they are on a slope. The children are loving it and have been helping by digging in the garden tonight. As you can see we went for the stencilled concrete driveway and we are pleased with it. Carpets and Laminate were installed with no problems by Harvey Norman. It is so difficult to visualise it and choose the right colour when you buy. The carpet which we bought is supposed to be brown but looks a series of different colours in different lights. The dark laminate really shows up dusty foot prints and marks but it looks good when it's clean.
Dave made the posts for the post box and we saved a bit of cash by staining it with vegetable oil after the man at Mitre 10 advised us to do so.
