The grass is riz
I wonder where the birdies is?
Melbourne is the answer!

Last week I spent a nice few days down in Melbourne as hubby was presenting at a conference there. He was working hard but I had a great time exploring. The weather was pretty good too, a mix of sunshine and showers as we head into Spring.

I spent a great few hours looking at curtain fabrics in Warwick’s showroom and came away with plenty of swatches.
I was also persuaded to take a trip up to the Skydeck in the Eureka Tower. Great views if you have the stomach for them which unfortunately I don’t. Considering I don’t like even going up a ladder I’m not quite sure why I agreed to go. I was OK if I was sitting down but felt sure I could feel it swaying (that might have been the vertigo!) I lasted until a little girl thumped the glass and leant backwards against it then I was a wuss and had to go back down 88 floors to terra firma.

Meanwhile back at the block they were busy beavering away. Finally, finally, finally the lower eaves were completed 🙂
Last week saw the commencement of gyprocking and today we got to see all their hard work. Looking great!
Yesterday we received the progress payment claim for commencement of internal linings.
Next week is full on with the internal doors and frames, staircase, garage door and water proofing. Then I believe we will be at lock up which is normally 10 weeks prior to completion 🙂 ! With that in mind I have arranged a kerbside collection with the local council to pick up the first batch of rubbish we have managed to cull from our rental.
