Sorry but nothing really new to add except that our retaining wall is almost done & our brick fence is now complete. The hard part is finding timber fence tradesmen who actually turn up to quote, when they say they will. Grrrrr!
Apart from that, our blinds FINALLY go in on Thursday. A seriously looong wait after the fiasco of the discontinued chosen fabric. Now that was a major disappointment.
Our US trip is getting closer. Have booked all accommodation (Disneyland, NY, San Francisco) & now organising a side trip to Toronto to see relos. A lot still to finalise in addition to the house 'stuff'.
We still haven't gotten around to buying our light fittings. No where to store them while we do all the other things.
Will post some boring outside pics this weekend of the fence & retaining wall & maybe of our blinds.
