Spa wired and full of water

2586So Saturday morning the electrician turned up and by lunchtime the new spa was powered. The boys and I jumped in and started to clean the inside. Once we cleaned it, I started to fill it and by 8pm it was full.

We fired up the filter and started to heat it. It was 20 degrees when we headed for bed on Saturday night. By Sunday morning it had reached 28 degrees. Everyone put their costumes on an jumped in. The wait was well worth it!

Happy Birthday To Me!

2534On Saturday I turned 34! Trudy and the boys took me to the Sydney Tower Restaurant for lunch. I haven't been for ages, the food is OK, but the view is what you really pay for.

We all ate way too much (I had too many cakes!) and then had a nice walk around the city to try and walk it off. (didn't really work!)

Spa Delivery

2489 At 9am this morning a huge crane turned up to put our new spa in the backyard. It was a bit of a squeeze, but the crane managed to make it into our driveway.

Trudy was a bit scared to watch them crane it over the house, but I had to see it. Setting up the crane seemed to take about 30 minutes and actually putting it in the backyard took about 5 minutes. Trudy headed next door for a cup of coffee with the neighbor. She didn't realise that the crane passed right over the neighbors house!

2498 Its still empty at the moment (gotta get a sparky out to power it up), but soon we will have a place to float around and relax.

Next step is the roof and the deck. This hopefully should be passed by council early next week.

New house project

2393

OK so we lived through the our last big house reno. So on the weekend we started the next big project. Making the backyard more livable!

We are building a nice enclosed area in the backyard, with a raised deck. At the end of the deck we are putting a nice big spa! The first thing we need is a slab. The guys turned up at 7am Saturday and where finished just after lunch.
