Is that 12 months already???

Can you believe that it is almost 12 months since we moved into the house??? I certainly can't. Well probably because it's only been 11 months and 2 weeks but let's not dwell on the detail.

What an unbelievable 12 months it has been. New house, married and new jobs for both of us.

I asked J to phone PD the other day to try and get a date for the 12 month inspection (those that have built with PD know that you have to request this inspection, they won't automatically book one in for you). I figured that they would mess around with dates and it would take a long time so I wasn't expecting any sort of response. Within a couple of hours of my request to aforementioned husband, he had emailed me telling me to work from home next Friday (16 May) and somebody would be out to do the inspection.

Wow! Now just have to put a list together .. mind you, it's not a long list but fairly important things (ie. electricals are a bit dodgy and one of the joins in the kitchen bench looks like it won't last much more than a couple of years). Other than that, we'll see if they pick up anything we haven't noticed.

The X-Box couch had a very good run over the weekend with lots of Need for Speed & Gears of War playing. J thinks the 'couch shit' and the 'bed shit' are a bit much for him to deal with but he'll get over it I'm sure :-))

We had some quotes done on Saturday as well for some blinds and stuff ..... swags/tails for the master bedroom and a holland blind (I think that was it) for the sliding door out onto the patio.

The only downer of the weekend was on Saturday when the bricky didn't show up to build the garden beds. I was REALLY annoyed as I was looking forward to seeing some more work done out the back, and we had lost his number so couldn't even ring to see what was going on.

Anyway ... get a call from him on Sunday apologising for not having phoned however he was in hospital after a fall from some scaffolding on Friday where he broke two fingers in his hand and also broke his phone, therefore couldn't get ring when he wanted to. He is now out of action for 6 weeks.

We felt pretty bad for cursing him after hearing that!

Hi Guys, how did your inspection go? Many items that need tending too?

Hope your backyard guy is on the mend :-)
