Jingle Jangle...

Is that a key in your pocket? or are you just happy to see me?

This afternoon, 20 months after we began this blog and 343 days since site start, we finally got the keys to our new Metricon HOME!

There is still a bit of rubbish on site that is being cleaned up tomorrow. Along with a leaky connection to the hot water service also being fixed first thing tomorrow. But overall the quality of the house is really good.

Like everyone else, here is the little gift we got from Metricon.

It is finally OURS!!!

We are planning on moving next Monday. Landscapers start tomorrow. This week will be a flurry of deliveries, our own tradies, cleaning (the builders clean is pretty lame) and packing up the rental.

So busy but so exciting! Tonight we are off to celebrate with Pizza and gear up for Lachie's operation tomorrow, he requested Pizza as his last meal before fasting. Wish us well!

  1. Yee freaking hah!! Woo hoo!!!

    1. Everyone says now the work starts, I think they're right :)

  3. Yay, congratulations!! So relieved you've finally got the keys. Looking forward to seeing the landscaping. We can only afford to do the driveway at the moment which will be in a few weeks, so I'll be living vicariously through your landscaping!

    Hope Lachie's op goes smoothly and he recovers speedily and enjoys helping you decorate his new room perhaps!


    1. Ha ha Nat, landscaping is super practical
      at the moment. Retaining walls, driveway and decking. Then we too, will need to fill up the coffers again before more landscaping. Not to mention all the empty rooms we will have cause we don't have enough furniture. xxx
