Sutra: That geeky feeling

eeeeeeeeee! To my new phone which I was finally able to pick up on Tuesday morning!

Here Follows Rant:

So Aus Air Express tried to deliver my parcel to my home and no one was there. So obviously they took it to the next Post Office on their route which is 10min from my home.
I work 9-5, an hour out of town, which means leaving home at 8am and getting home at 6pm. The Post Office they took it to is only open 9-5. They could have taken it to my local Post Office (open 7-7) and dropped it there (where most of my mail goes) But no. They didn't.
Call Aus Post and ask for it to be transferred: "You will have to pay postage"
Could someone else collect it for me: "No, you will need to show ID upon collection"

End Rant...

Sutra: My Weekend Gone

I had my hair done on Saturday, look at how lovely and shiny and clean it looks! Yay for the hairdresser!
Then I tried to take a picture of these cute flowers up the block! They were tiny though and as I didnt feel the need to lie on the ground to capture them accurately, this is what you get.

On the weekend we started laying our flooring! This is the yellow tongue I was telling you about last time. We got a whole bunch done on the weekend after a trial of maneuvering which started off Saturday morning. Where about 10 sheets fell off the back of the truck! Luckily as I was at the hairdressers I missed the angry grumpy fest which this would have created.

And how do you get the bunches of boards off the truck and 3 metres in the air? Digger power of course!

In order to make this not a completely building related post, as that is all I talk about lately. I took a pic of my Sunday outfit. Inappropriate shoes certainly, top and jeans too matchy-matchy, course. Comfortable? Yes.

Have a great weeek!!

Sutra: Floor Joists Done Like Dinner

See what I mean?
We have some really lovely looking floor joists now!
You can see in the middle their is a length of timber which makes up part of the link way between the two sections of the house. Don't worry there is actually more there now. I just don't have a picture of that yet!
This weekend we will be putting down this stuff called yellow tongue which is like a particle board with little yellow tongues which sit in the grooves.
So then we will be able to walk on it safely which will be nice!

Okies y'all have a great weekend. Off the the hairdresser tomorrow which is always a treat!

who gave this to me?

Which refers to this cold I have recently acquired.
By recently I mean today, at around 11am.
I have this terrible feeling somewhere between my nose oxygen passage and the back of my throat where instead of nice soft fleshy tissue I am breathing using sandpaper.
I often get sore throats. I am of the opinion that this is because I am a Taurean and apparently throats are very volatile areas for these ppl. Thats my theory and I am sticking to it until someone gives me something better.


So the minute I get a cold I rush out and buy Olive Leaf Extract because I believe that it's the bom. (which is good)
Taste = Foul: Try ehinacea in liquid form and nothing will ever taste worse than that.
Immune boosting and sickness warding offness = wicked

The second thing I do (not necessarily in that order) is to make a lemon drink. For which I have decided to do as many other lovely bloggers of note have done in the past, and make a pictorial step by step of drink making procedure...

To make this drink of health you will need: Lemon, suger, industrial size bucket of honey (no need to use the whole thing less u want to), hot water (not pictured), a cup

Cut the lemons in half and squeeze lemon juice into cup using preferred methods of squeezing. I like this jaw clamp thing so I can really squish the life juice out of them.

Add hot water then honey. I like to use 2 teaspoons depending on how strong the lemon is

I also like to add sugar. No reason. I just do.

Ok I have now drunk 3/4 of my lemon drink and I am already feeling better :)

See now u know how to feel better when u feel like crap too! Happy world

Sutra: House Update!

Over the weekend we reached a milestone in our building progress.
We finished painting the steel work!

This was a hugely long process because we had to paint all of it in situ and all the time clambering over tanks, steeing ladders up on stupid slope-y and rocke-y ground and having to climb all the way to the top rung in some places (not recommended by ladder labeling people)

I have to say that I am actually immensley proud of my efforts as you should know, I pained it allllllll my self!

So as you can see above the evolution of our house thus far.
Know what comes next? Floor joists, flooring then ...... Framing!

Then it will really start to look like a house!

Have a great week
