The pool tiler has arrived and is two days into his work. He will be finished late next week. This will be me in a matter of weeks!! xk
A Simone summer
And in Adelaide, this is what it looks like. This stunning photo of my kids and the boy from across the road was taken by my dear friend Simone Hanckel. She took it when doing a shoot for our neighbours, that was supposed to be of THEIR kids, and our kids crashed it and stole the show, as usual! (Don’t worry, my neighbours got amazing shots and their money was not wasted on my kids!) She...

The entire house has been daily covered in a fine mist of plaster powder. Also, the plasterers themselves were very odd. Very quiet when I was there, then, they would bicker like children fighting over a toy! Totally bizarre! SO happy...

It also tidies it all up, no more miss matched bricks. Image above is the dining on the left, the back door far left, the door to the laundry on the far right, door to the outside on the far far right! Dining room and back door. Aaand...
