All covered up

We decided to head down to the house on Wednesday night after work and found this -

Yep - it was fully wrapped in sisalation and the roof was on.  Yesterday we went back down to meet the sparky on site and found that the bricks had been delivered and all of the plumbing roughed in.

Of course we had to take the furkids down for their first look at their new home.

Tomorrow the brickies start and we're told that will be finished by the end of the week.   Next week we get our first look at the garden design and decide then whether we give the go ahead for the landscaping to be locked in to start in July around the time we'll be moving in.

Raels and I went to the footy on Friday night.  She is a Collingwood fan and me Carlton.  For people who aren't immersed in the AFL culture that's like being Protestant and Catholic, or Jewish and Muslim, Democrat and Republican, Capulet and Montague, Hatflields and McCoys - you get the picture.  Unfortunately for me, my team lost, but it was pretty obvious we had improved from last year.   Bring them on again I say.  Not sure whether we'll do together again though.  It's too hard to barrack when you might piss of the person sitting next to you.

First week I went with three of my kids.  Why do girls pull funny faces with phone cameras?

This is very exciting, Loz. You'll be moving in before you know it!

Your kids are beautiful. It looks like you guys had a great time!

Notice how it looks so much more like a house now the walls are wrapped?

Just girls that make funny faces??? I saw the pics on Facebook yesterday.... they weren't the only one pulling the funny face! I had a laugh anyway.

Great game, would have been electric there. I'm just glad it was actually telecast here. All these new digital channels and we still can't get the AFL Footy Show until after 11pm though.

Steph - Yep, supposed to be the end of June:)

River - and we've been plastered this week which makes it feel even more like a house and even bigger if that's possible.

Ads - Which was the reason for making the face :). It was a great game, either team would have been stiff to lose. Unlike last week against the Pies the umpires didn't influence many scoring opportunities.
