Down with the wall...(10th - 19th April)

Monday 13th
Easter Monday....another day of leisure. Yeah.

Tuesday 14th
It's been so long since I updated the blog...I can't remember what we did today.

Wednesday 15th
Mark cut out the bricks between the ensuite & our bedroom & I went to pick up the timber for the door frame. Nephew David dropped in to use the gargage & tools to do an oil change & helped me carry out bricks as Mark knocked out the wall. What a mess!

Thursday 16th
Mark built the door frame for the ensuite, screwed it in and bricked up the wall again - well most of it...only 3 bricks to go, but had to knock off because the kids came over for a BBQ dinner. I went to ECU Joondalup for a meeting & printed out all the work I've done for the past 4 months. Had a great dinner with Tara, Nick, Bree, nephew David & niece Kacey. Thanks for the desserts Kacey!

Friday 17th
Mark was not a well puppy this morning...I think it must have been something he drank (?). He got up late & then went back to bed again an hour later. Needless to say not much work got done today! I just pottered around. We went to Jill & Wayne's to catch up with Keith & Kim who are traveling around Australia for 3 months. They live in Canberra & have both recently retired. We watched the sunset over the Indian ocean - it was spectacular - pink, orange & indigo, and helped Keith celebrate his 65th birthday. Hip hip hooray! Kim & Brian took photos...please send me a copy to add to our blog.

Saturday 18th
Mark went to the salvage yard & bought timber for the ensuite floor joists. What a bargain - 8 x 2700 x 100 x 50 jarrah for only $40. I worked on ECU stuff in the morning & started constructing the leadlight window for the ensuite in the afternoon. Bugger it's been 4 months since I did my course & I'm not quite sure what I'm doing! Cross my fingers.

Sunday 19th
Day Off. Went to brunch with the Cleaver family. Jill & Wayne are heading off overseas and won't be back until Christmas. Keith 7 Kim are continuing on their journey around Australia and Brian is heading off to Vietnam this evening. Mark had an afternoon "nanna nap" and I finished constructing my leadlight window. I'm not very happy with it. I've cut some of the lead at the wrong angles and too short...hopefully I can "fix" it when I solder it. Mark worked out what gyprock, cornice & cement sheeting we need for the front rooms & emailed it to Clayton. Quite BBQ at home alone. Aaahhh we love relaxing with a beer & champagne. We phoned Dan to wish him a HAPPY BIRTHDAY for yesterday. He had a great weekend - did his rescue divers course & passed. Went for a couple of dives with Fisher & visited cousin Lyn.
