Roof trusses on and HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY!

In my last post I mentioned the hot hot weather. Well during the week we had some HUGE summer storms. Everywhere was flooding! Our back fence fell off, a big pot smashed, the dog ran away…. it was a deluge! So as a result, the roof trusses went onto your house, but not the actual roof. Oh, and the rain didn’t cool the temperature down at all. Today (being Australia Day) is even hotter than last week. We are just about to head off for a swim.

My husband thinking…

Our long hallway. Seems to go on forever – love it!

My babies exploring the new house and where all our things will go. It’s funny to listen to their questions “…will we bring the bath?…will be bring the spoons?…how will the dog get there?”

My windows strewn all over the place!
The front. You can see where my gorgeous double doors will go. The windows across the front all belong to our bedroom. I will put a window canopy over the middle one.
My chairs arrived too! They look good, but will look nicer in the new house. Our bench is tiny at the moment, so they are a bit squashed. The new house has an island that is 3m long.

Decided to make a few treats with the boys to eat. I had an-almost-7 year old that was bored and his behaviour was foul so to change the mood we thought making things together would sort it out. It worked thank goodness!
