First Planting

Yes I have cut the grass but with all the rain it's growing like a centimeter overnight!
We have started planting out the front yard rock wall. It's been slow going working in between showers and scrapping together the plants at the right price. I'll post more detail and some close-ups before the weekend all going well.

Lack Of Posting

It's been an emotional roller coaster ride of late. We've had some massive let downs by a few tradies. The biggest was the flooring installer, had him booked in for weeks and on the day he was a no show and he won't answer his phone since. I really don't get it...if he's running behind a simple phone call would have kept us in the too hard it seems!

Anyway he's fired and another contractor has been engaged to lay the timber flooring...on my birthday of all days.

The weather has been a complete s**t in South East Queensland lately and with Christmas coming I've thrown in the towel on getting anything major done until the new year.

Alarm Update 2

Alarm went well for a while and I was hoping changing the code panel had fixed the false alarms. It seems not so as I had another false alarm on Sunday and the alarm triggered as soon as I worked in the door. Zone 3 is still the culprit....looks like I'll have to call the alarm people again.
