Just a blue, blue day

And Wednesday morning dawns – is it windy or rainy – no! Yeah! For the first time in five days it is sunny and still, a perfect day for “installing” a house. Are we excited, well maybe just a little bit, shower, breakfast and coffee and off we go to the site. And it was a bit gob smacking to see the crane rising above the houses’s as we approached and all the detours in place and two semi-trucks with two modules parked up the street. To think that in two days the site would be transformed with a house.

Our first visitor in Camborne Road, Singapore

Patrick and I were sharing a glass of wine today, both of us having a nice crisp white wine – P in Singapore, me in Sydney – no we are not mad (well, maybe I am) we were using Skype! We even cheers’d each other, I hit my webcam a bit hard though and it nearly wobbled off its perch on my monitor.

Anyway as we were chatting Patrick did (very nicely) say I was just wondering are you going to update the blog!

Yes, Okay, Okay I have been a bit slack, just a little bit – well all right a LOT! Absolutely no updates since umm, well, lets see – gee its so long ago I don’t think I can count to that number. Well I confess, today is Sunday the 17th January and I am in our new house, and no updates, well since (cringe) the 6th of October (the day before our house was to be installed) – now that’s only, what!  103 days, that’s terrible!

So, that’s a lot of catching up to do – so be patient, but, it will all reveal itself over the next two days.

Just to wet the whistle

Look up in the sky, is it a bird, is it a plane – no, it’s…………………..

Sydney receives a soaking

October 6, 2009 – 12:22PM

Sydney has received a much-needed soaking, with more rain falling over the weekend than during the whole of August and September combined, finally washing away any remnants of last month’s dust storms.


Yesterday afternoon small hailstones fell during thunderstorms in Sydney, and further hailstones could be expected tomorrow and possibly this afternoon, Ms Golding said.

Cooler days ahead

But there were cooler days ahead, highs of just 17 degrees expected for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, “which is unusually cold for Sydney”, Ms Golding said.

Arrrrhhhhhhhhh, cmon – be nice……. just a couple of more days, please…….

Leaving Soon….

Two and a half hours and the trucks (with the modules) leave the Prebuilt factory in Kilsyth.

So, what’s important when you build a house in one state and transport it to another state for it to live – well, the weather! Sunny weather is very good, cloudy weather with no rain is good, cloud and a bit of rain is OK, heavy rain not so good, heavy rain and wind, not good at all. Would be really good if there is no rain on Wednesday or Thursday in Sydney and none on Tuesday in Melbourne.

Now let’s see what is in store……..

Tuesday: Melbourne: Showers, local hail and thunder….14C, Sydney: A shower or two 19C

Wednesday: Sydney – Windy, Shower or two 17C

Thursday: Sydney – Windy, Few Showers 17C

Hmmmmmmmm, where has all that weather Karma disappeared to?

Bed now – I’m sure that will help! Dreaming of sunny days and tropical islands, surf and warm water, mojito’s – now – I’m feeling better all ready!

And on Sunday we go exploring….
