It’s been a busy few days round these parts.
There has (finally) been some action on our block of land. After almost 18 months since we began the process of choosing, bidding and purchasing the block of land. Then choosing the house design, making changes (as you do) and gaining bank approvals, final building details and local council approvals, a port-a-loo has appeared at the site.
You can not imagine the excitement the appearance of this little blue building provoked.
That machinery is on our neighbours block. We know our new (future) neighbours – the wife went to school with my sister and now her child is at school with Amelia. It’s a small world.
We spent the last couple of days in Sydney, so on the way home, drove by the block again and discovered that there had been some more action.
Our block has been excavated. Woo Hoo! This was definite cause to crack open some bubbly. Finally, after all of this time, something is happening!
There is progress.
And as Bill Heslop says in the film, Muriel’s Wedding, “You can’t stop progress”.
