We are home. :-)

Hi all, we have moved back home.  Renovations are not finished but we have our beds in our bedrooms and that is all.  The bathroom is tiled and the toilet and shower are operational but not that vanity sink.  So into the laundry we travel which has a sink and cupboard but no washing machine or dryer yet.  Kitchen is just the cupboards waiting for a benchtop and appliances.  So BBQ meals it is.  Saturday my hubby and daughter moved a lot of our stuff to the verandah or spare bedroom.  While myself and a friend (Helen) had a lovely day manning our stall at the Annual Gordonvale Pyramid Race.  Sunday, the three of us did more moving and this morning I finished off the last three bookshelves.  So the other half of the house is now hopefully clear enough for the painter to come in and finish off the remainder of the house.  I was up at 6.15am having a shower so I could have one before all the workers turned up.  Sat down for breakfast at 9.30am and now it is 10.25am and it still only me and our dog.  So much for a hive of activity at our house to finish it all off.
This photo shows our back verandah and was taken from where I am sitting to type this.

I am so happy to be home and not having to travel 30mins - 40mins through two sometimes three lots of roadworks each day.  I think this week will be the close to the end.  Well I have paid internet now and am slowly going through my Feedly list.  Last night there were 738 posts for me to visit.  So may take me a while. :-)
