getting ready for summer... and peanut :o)

So yesterday we went out into the sunshine trying to get ready for next weekend. All being well, at this stage, we will have a brand new entertaining area - well the beginnings of it anyway.
The form work is up and ready and the rest will hopefully be done before the concrete truck arrives on the weekend... we cannot wait.

We also began painting the fence out the back (when I say me, I mean, Mark painting and me keeping him company :oD).
We finally chose the colour this week - colorbond, Jasper - and I am so excited to see it finished. Here is the start of it.

Progress has continued this week with the arrival of 24 tonne of fill. As you can tell by the photos there is alot more needed, but the most important part is done now if we want our concrete to be poured next week. Fingers crossed that there is no more rain for a few weeks.

the nursery, almost done.

Our furniture for the nursery has arrived, Yay!!! I am so glad that we got the chocolate colour. All that needs to be done now is the fit out for the built in and we are done.

we're getting there.

A little more progess has happened, and a little less has been scratched off the list (and alot more is added). But I guess that is always the way :D.

We have recently had a bobcat come and scrape the land in preparation for turf. Mark has also been busy trying to finish off the retaining walls and drainage also.

Here are some pics.
