Progressing further towards official opening

There is light at the end of the tunnel.

We are slowly but steadily progressing towards our official opening. Plasterboard stoppers have finished, we can now start the painting and breaking through into the existing house. Plumbing to be finished next and floors to be laid. Deck balustrade and spouting to come.

Hope we’ll get much done before Christmas.

Watch the space.

What a wet summer

the amount of rain we had over the last few days is extraordinary – at least on a subjective level. The occasional hours of sunshine in between evaporate the water quickly, hence yesterday we had 30 deg C. with 80% relative humidity.

The last winter has been so terribly wet and turned all paddocks into mud that we decided to have the horses in a shelter and feed them rather than having them wading through mud and effectively thrashing the paddocks.
