Long time no posts.

Life gets in the way, many times.
My lack of posts is really not good. I apologise.

This will be the last post on this particular blog I think.
We sold this house recently and are awaiting the removalists to come and pack up our belongings and shift us back to where we previously lived.

It was with a heavy heart and many late night discussions, that led us to the conclusion.
Fortunately for us, things have dropped in to place very quickly.

Our house sold within hours of being shown to some people (actually within hours of being on the market).

I will not plug the real estate, however have had the most marvellous experience with them.

We are moving back to a remote town, at this stage for about 3 years, may be longer/shorter, who knows. Possibly we will once again return to the Yanchep/Two Rocks region, or perhaps venture further south?

The possibilities are endless and I am sure at some point in the future there will be another home building blog.

I will look at starting a 'general' blog, about bits and bobs. But then again, that thing called life may very well interrupt and keep me occupied.

For now, see you later. xxxxx

Theatre/lounge finished!

FINALLY! We have some NEW photos for you to look at!
My lovely husband and I laid the floor on Friday night and then yesterday, whilst I was out working, he painted. We finished off the skirting boards last night.
Today he is doing the window sill and then our room is finished.
We are getting an electrician to pop in another tv point and double plug into the corner (bottom photo) as we originally planned for this room to have a projector, it wasn't until we moved in, we realised the room was too small to do something so grand. Haha!
Anyway hope you like them!

Adding old photos, due to choosing paint colours.

I have added these photos, as it really and truly is time to get the ball rolling on painting the rest of the house. I am seeking help from the lovely Homeone forum members, so popped these up to see if there are any ideas.

Thanks Tash xxx

Posts have been very few, I apologise.
We have been somewhat busy with the house lately, but alas I have still to purchase a new card for my camera. So will endeavour to put up some 'mobile phone' pictures, they won't be great quality, but they will show (at least) what we've been up to.

Recent events, we cleaned up the gardens, weeded, moved some plants from the back garden into the front garden - by the way the plants we didn't require any longer we put on Free cycle (click the link and then join if you haven't) and they were taken the next day. The lady managed to score over 13 plants and was very happy.

So were we, as we would have felt terrible throwing away such nice plants.

We have now painted 98% of the living area, with the kitchen, dining, family and activity rooms now having been painted and skirting boards installed.
We need some more paint for the lounge (to finish off 100% paint for living areas) and also floor boards in there and skirting. Once done, we'll move onto laundry and toilet and main bathroom.

Still tossing up colours, we thought we'd found a good one with Taubmans Gusto, but it was too dark and not the 'right' green. So then whilst in Bunnings, we decided to get a sample of Taubmans Iced coffee, but alas, this was too dark also. We're thinking we could possibly go with a half tint, but it seems to have more of a pinkish/red undertone which we are not loving at the moment.
So back to the drawing board on that one!

Ok, well I will try and figure out how to do an upload direct to this blog from my phone, otherwise, will do a normal upload to computer and then to here.

More painting

We did some more painting last week when hubby was home.
I tell you what, it's AMAZING what paint can do to your mood and your home! It looks fabulous and much more 'homely' now :) We did the kitchen, dining and what you'd call the family room and also the activity room.

We still have the 'lounge' (theatre) to do, but for now that's all the paint we had. I am feverishly scouring the internet for ideas on colours for the bathroom and laundry, as we'll be moving onto those areas soon enough. Then the kids rooms.

Photos will be coming, as soon as I buy a new memory card for our camera. The old card died and I unfortunately lost almost 200 photos. Absolutely devastated...

Ok, well thought I'd update, as I haven't been on here in a while.

Nothing much to report on, interior-wise...still going through the motions of bills and other 'fun' things (note my sarcasm) looking for work, but hard to find something that fits into school hours, will keep trying though!

Today I pruned the rest of my kangaroo paws. I pruned the red ones a while ago, as they had all died and were looking horrible. So thanks to good old 'google' I found out how to do it.

Today it was the yellow ones now I have some really nice green leafy plants, instead of half dead pathetic looking things...hahaha!!

Have been 'googling' to try and find out what to plant now...flower-wise, as I would like some colour in the garden over Autumn and Winter. Haven't found anything yet.

If anyone still reads this and has any ideas, please feel free to message me/post a comment.

That's all for now :)
