Hello everyone!

Hi! I'm here.
Wow, life is busy, and the days seem to move by so quickly. So many times I have planned to stop by here and share things and it just doesn't happen. I miss being here. So I'm going to try, really try, to make some time for it. I've got lots of things I want to share.
But firstly, because it's long overdue (for our family overseas!), an update on the house.
The outside is finished, apart from front porch and back deck - we painted all summer long! Up on that scarey high scaffolding!

View from the back lawn, Aaron taking the scaffolding down. See that little tin shed on the deck, we are still using that as our bathroom, it's getting a bit cold now!

(This is a before photo of when we first bought the house, it's interesting to see how big the cabbage trees have grown! Basically all that you see in this picture was bulldozed)

We've put most of the gib board up on the inside walls now so it looks a bit different again now.
