A very quick hello,
Thankyoubrocjetship for letting everyone know!
Well 3 pm turned into 7pm before they had finished, we then did a walk through that took ages, then we has to pay them money, popped the champagne and finally said our goodbyes at about 9pm, so very busily trying to put beds together, just ran back to the old house quickly as we hadn't even taken clothes.
Silly us thought we would do a few trips tonight to get clothes and stuff, but ran out of time, so a quick trip to the rental to pick up some clean clothes and toiletries, a quick visit with home one and back to my new house
The kitchen looks amazing, I'm in love with the house, we turned the fire on and I had my jumper off in about five minutes was so warm. No photos yet, but promise some tomorrow. Won't ale long to get things sorted.
Only a few minor touch up jobs, they still need to tile our back step and grout a small section of front porch, but otherwise it is perfect
Sorry guys off to my new home, will be back tomorrow with photos.
Thanks everyone for your wonderful thoughts and wishes

Not long for you either . U getting excited?
Tiny bit, but so much to do and my motto is to have low expectation so I don't stress / get disappointed if it doesn't turn out that way...

I love your house too! Can't wait to see finished house pics. Enjoy your new home and getting it all set up.
Can't believe your dining chairs in storage were sold! I hope they have given you some compensation and are working hard to organise replacement chairs. Hopefully that is the end of all the drama's.
Now the next stage of your build starts.....landscaping!

What? they are buggering off to Thialand? oh great!
Ryan - not to worry. I saw Mat this morning and he said they have no plans at the moment to head back to Thailand anytime soon. The comment he made to gogo was just a joke he said. Of course they will go again, I just don't think anytime soon.
Gogo - can't wait to see more pics. Your house looks a million dollars!!! You must be so happy. Looks like Zen came through with the goods for you after all and all that stressing is a million miles away!
