Spent the day cleaning, helping with appliance deliveries (fridge arrived all dinged so I will be getting replacement doors in a fortnight or so!), paying bills, rushing home to fax documents, vacuuming new carpet and pretty much detailing the new abode. We left the house after the sun went down and after we played with all the lighting combinations. I am so pleased with our lighting... very simple, basic actually, but considering combinations of pendant, task and lamp lighting, it all looks spectacular.
I started taking photos this morning, then got distracted and never considered the camera again so I'm sorry you will have to wait until at least some of our furniture is in before I post some more.
We have done our sums tonight, while paying stressfully large bills! and I am also pleased to say that we came in right on budget, give or take a few thousand. I'm wrapped. I've kept control of everything I could have down to the letter and the few unavoidable blow outs... plumbing, electrical circuitry... couldn't be avoided, but were offset by bargains where I could get them......
Boy this has taken a physical toll on me... I STILL HAVE MY COUGH ..... but it has been well worth it. The place tonight (despite the mud) looked magical. My heart skipped a beat when we left. I'M FINALLY EXCITED! Thank you for all your wonderful support, my friends. You have helped me deal with the tough times and have been so generous in your compliments. I am sorry I have not been able to visit many of you lately. Once I am settled, I will have a big 'session'. This bloggy blog is not over. I will continue to post as often as I can but I will also be spending time over at my shop blog.... now need to pay for all this. Good night my friends. See you on the other side... whenever Telstra can get their act together and get me a phone line! (another story).
