After a full week of hard work from Nanna and Poppa, Craig, Oom Pa Pa, Katharine and Steve, Daddy and even Nanna's neighbour Rob (plus some full on baby sitting of an unusually grumpy Ella by Mummy by herself all week), the house is starting to look really good. We've scrubbed all the walls and repainted the lounge room, dining room and all four bedrooms. So just kitchen, laundry, two bathrooms and a hallway to go.
Grandpa and Daddy had this week off to get as much of the painting done as possible, but are back at work this week, so we'll be reconvening next weekend to hopefully finish everything off. Meanwhile, furniture is being delivered tomorrow and we're looking at carpet options for the lounge room on Tuesday to finish off the transformation. The final problem is that the hot water system needs replacing and we're still working out what the best option for it is. So still a fair bit of work to do but it's all coming together really well – thanks to everyone for all their help so far.
