Special delivery....

Not often do I get excited about seeing toilets, but this time, I couldn't contain myself!! I had just left school after dropping off my Son for his first day, and attending to the uniform shop. I decided to drop by on the way home...just in case! Luckily I had my camera with me, and I couldn't contain my excitement when I saw a toilet and rubbish cage on the block!!

After all the prior dramas and numerous delays, it actually feels like a reality now! We still have a huge road ahead of us, but, for now, I can sleep better knowing that progress has been made.

After I picked the kids up from school, I went back to the block to show them what I had discovered! Sometime after my first trip there today, there had been another little visitor, who had left 2 signs and some pink paint! The first sign I have been waiting a while for, and was just as excited to see it as I had the toilet! (Creative photoshopped techniques used for privacy reasons.).

This sign is stapled to the back fence, and is delivery (or dumping) instructions for our beautiful Daniel Robertson bricks. I am soooo looking forward to these! They will be worth every cent of the $7.7K upgrade.

The pink paint, I guess, is just to highlight the existing water metre so either tradies know to avoid running their trucks over it, or the water people know where to install the tap. Not sure, but it wasn't pink yesterday!

I will be eagerly awaiting to see what tomorrow brings! Maybe, just maybe, there might be some earthworks!!!

This is the best news Stormy...Hooray for Dunnies and Taps! Only home builders can really appreciate how exciting it is to get these items. Hopefully the pegs will go in, plumbing and then the slab. Just think, this year you will be in your beautiful new home!

Thankyou Mrs B! I can only keep all of my fingers and toes crossed that we will be in our home this year. I won't hold my breath given past experiences ;-)

Can't wait to see what happens next!!!

Hey stormy,
HAHHAA you can now say

Hahaha! I wish I'd thought of that! Would have made a great post title ;-)

Slab party might be more fitting. The thought of having a few drinks around a smelly portable doesn't quite excite me ;-)!!
