We took a short break up to Exmouth to swim with the whale sharks and wow what an amazing experience. We had planned the trip last year in August thinking we would be well and truly finished with building – I was a little optimistic! A total break from build stuff did us the world of good and we have come back ready to ‘rock and roll’ on what is hopefully the last hurrah.
The guys from Landscapes WA (http://www.landscapeswa.com.au) have been busy whilst we were away – they painted our Eastern fence in Dulux Grey Ridge and organised temporary fencing for the pool. Our landscaper suggesting the temporary fencing as the pool ‘people’ wanted the pool fencing installed before they would start rendering and filling the pool. We decided that temporary fencing was a good idea as the thought of having glass fencing installed and then the pool people and landscapers trying to work around it was giving me nightmares!
The landscaping guys have been busy prepping the garden today by removing rubbish/sand from the raised beds and levelling out various areas. They fininished off the day by sweeping and hosing down where they had been working – what a bonus having such neat workers around☺
We were supposed to have the pool rendered and filled today but by 11am there was still ‘no show’. I phoned the pool people to find out where they were only to be told they needed a completely dry day – ok so when is it scheduled in now ?? Maybe next Tues or Weds. I have to say I find this lack of communication and no care attitude is very frustrating. Ready to rock and roll – uuuuuuum maybe a little bit optimistic again. ☺
