Two weeks into the new job and I'm getting a handle on things and how much actually needs to be done. It's an initial 9 month contract and I'll have to perform to keep it, but I can do that :)
The former company I worked for has an order coming up in the Supreme Court on the 9th of March to put it into liquidation which finally means that we can pursue our outstanding entitlements. It'll still take a few months but we should be able to recover some of it by then. I hope some action is taken to investigate the former CEO and an alleged missing $600k because he doesn't deserve to get away with that.
By the end of this week the pipes should be down on the block and the boxing done in preparation for the slab to go down on the 23rd of this month. Seems to have taken forever to get to this stage given it's more than a year since we bought the land.
Met some new neighbours yesterday - young couple called Jason and Sherry who seem really nice people. It's amazing that we already know around a dozen people on the estate but don't even know the next door neighbour here in a house we've lived in for nearly three years. I'm looking forward to putting down new roots away from a place that I thought would always be home.
