Renovations.

We have had a lot going on here since the last post.

On Thursday, we travelled to Adelaide. We had a few things on and tied them all into the one visit. Joseph saw the Ophthalmologist and Amelia went to diabetes camp. While Amelia was on diabetes camp, Steve and I went to Hahndorf to stay. Daniel, Sam, Madeline and Brigette looked after the boys for us so that we could have sometime on our own. 

Hahndorf was wonderful. Steve and I stayed at Amble Wren Cottage for 2 nights.  It was good to spend sometime together without the children and relax away from the busy life we have. 

Since coming back, Steve has been working hard on renovating the lounge/dining room. Here are some photos from the work he has done. 


Here is Steve finishing off the replacement of the wood that was running the wrong way.


All this took 2.5 days to do. Next we need to sand the wood down, stain the wood and then varnish. The sander is coming on Monday so for now Steve is working on the computer table. 

He made this bracket to hold the computer table up. 


I was pretty impressed that he made this himself. Once it is painted and varnished, I am sure it would look really professional. 

I will post progress photos as we do them. It is much easier for me to upload to facebook so if you want to see photos each day, you can go and like my facebook page here

Thanks Nancy.

He is very dedicated and good at it. I am so thankful for all the work he has done on the house. He has saved us a bundle of money by doing lots himself.

Thanks for your visit and comment Nancy.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
