30 days : days 18, 19 & 20... Laundry Renovation cont...

Ok, so here is another update of sorts on the laundry...Day 18 saw the security come on board to safeguard the big 'unveil':

Laundry Security
Clearly he is busy 'guarding' something...
Then, as things were slowly slipping behind schedule, we had to get additional 'hired' help by way of an apprentice:

Clearly, unimpressed with being 'caught' sleeping on the job

And this is how she shows how unhappy' she is...

30 days: day 16 Valentines Day

Well last night we went to a movie... Not any old cinema no no, that would be just to boring. Instead we went to where I work to the St George Open Air Cinema to see 27 Dresses! It is a truely beautiful night, watching a movie on a big scree that appears out of Sydney Harbour... You not only get to watch the movie, but also the changing lights of the city as office towers shut down for the night. Mind you, prior to that, we did catch up with some friends of mine for dinner at the Sienna Marina Restaurant in Wooloomooloo.

30 days: day 10

Friday night markets

vege stall
a day off from work, so that I could be at home for the tiler to lay the sand and cement floor for the laundry. I sorted out paperwork, this took just about all day, so some fresh air and conversation was in order. Luckily it was the Epping Twilight Markets, where we had dinner followed by a visit with the favourite brother and SIL, and the nephews.

Rebecca Cool - Ginger-Cat

Last night we battled the weather to get to the opening of Rebecca Cools' art exhibition 'Hop, Skip, Jump' at the Paddington Contemporary Gallery. This is our latest acquistion. To celebrate our purchase, and because now we are broke, we had dinner at Harry's Cafe de Wheels.

30 days: day 5 Snail on a Hoya

In continuing with this 30 day theme, yesterday when seeing L off to work, I saw this snail sliding down one of our Hoya carnosa. We have had a lot of rain over the last couple of days, which unfortunately, brings the snails...

30 days : day 4... Laundry renovation cont...

Continuing on this theme of '30 days' (oh and yes, we did not do one yesterday as we were too busy with this work) I will continue with posting photos of the Laundry Renovation. Yesterday, I had the plumber here. He arrived nice and early, 7:15am, and got his tools ready. A petrol operated concrete cutter was the tool of choice for the morning!. For those who don't know what this sounds like, think of a chainsaw in a confined room! The living room was full of exhaust fumes which dissipated some 30 minutes later.

Now yesterday was a nice day, only 35 degrees C with very high levels of humidity. So, my task(s) for the day were to have a supply of cold water at the ready for him, and his son (with his friend as well). The 'boys' were given the task of digging the trench for the pipe to connect to the sewer, fun fun fun!!!
