Exciteable descriptions of a new life living in "The Best Place on Earth". The new template is more basic, more classy, tidier... so totally not me!

9:23 a.m. - Household Saga

I really didn’t feel like running again this morning when I got up but now I’m in my nice warm jeans, I do feel like running.  But I’m not going to, I’m going to hang off and be refreshed tomorrow.  Instead I will completely ruin my Karma and hardened focus by returning a bent ironing board to Zellers (our Woolworths equivalent).


A change is in the air at the building site.  Neil (the builder’s rather nice employee – ex masseur) seems to have been given free reign in completing some of the aesthetics of our house.  He’s perfectly OK with us moving our bed into the lovely green room and our desk (plus sewing machine for me to make curtains) and couch onto the gallery where they have more or less finished skirting boards and window trim.


He is also listening to us and agreed to leave the woodwork for now and grout the floor tiles in the bathrooms today so that the toilet can go in next.  Won’t that be nice?


On that subject, the sinks turned up with the wrong number of holes in them and the ones with the right number of holes will take 6 weeks to procure in the right colour (I think they hand-grind the stones to make the porcelain or something).  SO we went out at the weekend and chose a different sink in the right colour with the right number of holes which was in stock – we took it away and saved builder $50 each so he’s all happy now because the fancy toilet seats are covered.
