Counting down

Yes, I am officially in countdown mode! Tomorrow is the builders Final Inspection where building surveyors or some such come out and inspect the house in order to release the Certificate of Occupancy and evidently some of the managers from head office come out and take a look too.

I have 8 sleeps until my PCI and 15 sleeps until handover! -squeal- I really only have 2 weeks left to go!! WOOOOOOHOOOOOOO Wow!

I've been trying to make a list of what needs to be completed:
  • Carpet
  • Kitchen splashback
  • shower screens
  • Mirrors
  • outdoor painting (I want to see my door!!!)
  • electrician needs to move a light switch and do a GPO in the bathroom and an outdoor light
  • Insulation to go into the roof
  • Appliances - last thing to go in though
I finally bought some door mats on the weekend. I had been looking for something nice that wasn't plain and boring and I finally found one that's simple but OK.
I've asked a friend to get her hubby, who is a handyman, to give me a price on how much it would cost to build a brick letterbox but yesterday I also finally found the letterbox I was after so I'm really not sure which way to go with regards to that, I'm tipping it will be a price point decision.

I also ordered my redi shades last week and they were sent on Thursday so hopefully I get them today too

OMG I have only 15 sleeps to go!!! I really should have done some more packing on the weekend hahahah ahh well will do some each night after work this week, there really isn't a lot left to do but still, it does need to be done.


  1. um w00t!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so exciting. hope it all goes to plan

  2. Yeheeeyyyy!!! That is amazing! I'm very happy for you!
