Sutra: Christmas

So this was my Christmas!
No food photos because I am always way too busy eating to take pictures of what it is we are eating! But it was all delicious and amazing! Everything just seems to taste better on Christmas day than any other day!

When we arrived at the shack on Christmas eve the wind was up, so John rigged up the windsurfer to go and have a good old crack at something he has not done in about 2 years due to house building taking priority! It's something he really loves and is very good at actually! But he had some pretty sore muscles the next day!

Looking good out there! In the bay gliding over the water!

As my partcipation in Christmas lunch, I provided Sangria (copious amounts) and truffles. What did we all learn from this experience? Don't let me make the truffles! They were the size of golf balls! Delicious, but huge! Also extremely not good looking! Oops!

Here we are being super gooses! With the hats and streamers!

This cracker guy climbed the truffle. It was a hard slog, but he made the peak that day.

Good bye you beatiful place you! I will miss you 100% until the next time!

Sutra: Winter

No wonder I am so cold these last few days!
But on the other hand maybe we will have a good snow season this year!

Sutra: Oh Yesterday

Feeling very meloncholy and cos this is my blog I am sharing... Yesterday, 4 years ago, one of my favourite people in the world died. A nice kid, only 18. He was loved by so many people and is still missed daily by many.

I love you and I miss you. The world needs more nice guys like you! Normal kids with problems just like anyone else. Boys who love their family and let their cousins pluck their mono brow. Who bake cupcakes and go swimming in the rain. An amazing person and a friend.

Then today 4 years ago, I graduated. It was a less than joyous occasion.

That's all I got for today.
Other than to tell you: the weekend starts here!

Sutra: So Shiny!

One of my jobs in this enterprise was to pick all the fittings. Apparently I like chrome! We ordered most of our stuff from If I had my time again I probably wouldnt use Reece. We will be getting out final little things like towel rails etc from Robert Ferguson in Launceston. When we ordered from them they had our stuff in after only about a week and they were so easy to deal with and gave us a call as soon as we could come in and collect our stuff. Reece on the other hand... Well we waited about 3 weeks and didnt hear anything from them. When we called we found out that they actually had most of our order, but no one had notified us. They were also missing a few things. Then we have been waiting another week or 2 and had to call them again to see if the rest was in and they didn't even know what we were still waiting on! So I had to check our quote against what we actually had and email them to say what we were missing. So, yeah. Annoying! I am happy with the stuff i got from them, it's all just lovely, but i am annoyed at having to constantly chase them!

Our shower rail is a nikles shower rail from It's so shiny! It has a great flat head which has a mirror surface on the back, which is good so I can check for mascara residue!
The taps for our bath and basins are from the Phoenix - Kubus range also from I love the squareness of them! Very much like our house!
A Mizu 1700 Gooseneck tap for the kitchen, also from is what we have for our kitchen. It's soooo pretty! I can't wait to start using all my nice stuff!
Mizu kitchen sink. Its a sink. I dont really like the draining racks in most sinks so this one has a nice neat and minimal draining rack.
This one is a little different, its a Vitra - Piu Due squarer bowl basin from unfortunately I don't think they carry this basin anymore. It's huge! Which is good so I dont splash water everywhere... Or thats the plan anyway.
These are our main light fittings. They are called Surf lights and we got them from which is located in Hobart, Tasmania. They are just gorgeous on the wall, very simple but they light beautifully! I really didnt want ceiling lights or down lights. Down lights are a little overdone nowadays and use a fair bit of power and ceiling lights are a bit boring! So wall lights it is!

So there you go. These are the fittings we have and they are lovely!
It's ok to be jealous.

Sutra: The Chosen Colour

So this is the colour we have gone with.
It's called Vanilla Quake 1/4 which somehow looks kinda pinkish when you compare with white but is actually a more beige-y colour. Oh well poor J now will be living in a girlyfied house!

Yep, so you cant tell at all what colour it is can you?

Sutra: Painting Progress

Painting is coming along quite nicely thankyou very much! As you can see our house is looking very white with a slightly yellowish cast to it! The undercoat is slightly yellow, which i dislike. I also dislike painting the undercoat on with a brush around the edges. Its a very very thick undercoat, kinda the texture of clag glue, or custard (:-S). So its a pain to paint on. Rolling is not so bad because with a roller it spreads much better!


Master bedroom (my room!!!!)

Hallway from the other direction

Sneak peek at our super awesome fittings and stuff!! Toilets and sinks and taps and stuff! Yay!

Sutra: Going back in time

This is what happens at the beginning of spring. All these lovely flowers come out and make their home at the block! I loved the justaposition of the lovely little purple flowers with the barbed wire, these flowers were growing in a few places all down the fence. They are probably a weed, but they look lovely!

My cute little car is nearly a 4wheel drive! It made it around the back of the house, which is no easy feat!

This is my desk at my new work the first week i started! Very interesting huh...

Another pretty view of my house for you to gasp at its lovelyness

My car before the little silver one :( got stolen and burnt! Of all the bogan things that could happen. This pretty much tops it all!

Snow on the mountain in winter
More snow.

This is how cool people put up plaster! With great difficulty in fact! J actually welded up this special plaster hoisting device on to an old hospital bed!

My first trip in my new little car. Yes i took this picture while driving. Dont tell me you have not done the same!

My last day at the old office! And my biiiiiiig bag i was given by my old boss! I am in fact trying to fit inside the bag. I mean, thats what you are supposed to do right?

My old work view! Just had to show you and also remind myself how lovely it was!

So thats it. I am actually rushing as i am off up the block now!
Using a new app (for me) called draftcraft to edit this post. It has a few failings...

Sutra: So... What's up?

I have not posted in a million years! Sorry about that... I just was not feeling it!
This is what's been happening lately. Including getting a new job which I love!
Plastering our house... Which is not fun at all! You should all know this and then don't do it! It's messy and dusty and plaster dust is hell on hair!!!

Lovely flowers from my work colleague as a thank you for doing her makeup before a super fancy awards dinner we went to with the other 'corporate office' staff

Me doing my best impression if a gypsy... or something. As I said, plaster is really really bad for your hair. If you like dry shampoo, you might like to get a little bit from a building site and try rubbing it in your roots... or not. I will let you decide.

A Hallway... Amazing yeah? I think the last post I did was back in April and maybe we just had the timber studs? Well look! Now all those studs have plaster on them! Way big improvement

This here is the dining area. See a fireplace on the left right there? Thats where we can cook sausages and potatoes. (I sanded this whole room and now I have to paint it. Envy me at all?)

Breakfast with some girls because one of said girls (the one on the left) was down for a few days from a place which will remain unmentioned, because she doesn't like it! Mine is the biggest!

This is the sexy J having a nanna nap. He can nap like nobodies business. I on the otherhand cannot. It is one of the great mysteries of the universe as to why I cannot sleep during the day, in a car or just about anywhere else.

And thats all I have for now. I dont want to overload you on my first blog back in ages with my awesome boringness. I will save that for next time.
