September 8th – Saturday

The past three weeks have been pretty busy and thankfully, the weather has been perfect for outdoor work.  Material for the ceilings arrived along with batons and the rest of the cladding wood. The weather has been beautiful, so, on with the cladding!

Didn’t Robert do a fabulous job! All on his own, with his trusty ‘first mate’ to hand, run, fetch, sort etc. The area to the front, around the door and window, is where the conservatory/veranda will go.  We reckon that Robert hammered in over 800 nails on this ‘east’ side, alone. That is one heck of a lot of hammering!

Windows framed and sills fitted. 

 What a surprise when these Sunflowers came up.

The seeds got spilled into some bark mulch and they have grown in the mulch






Sedum – a great favorite of the Bees



The next job to tackle was the guest bedroom. The walls have been papered and then painted. So what is that I see on the wall?  WOW! It is another Orb! Now, I know there will be those who are sceptic about spiritual Orbs, but isn’t it peculiar that I have taken thousands of photographs over the past few years, with the same camera, and no Orbs have shown up on any of them, other than night shots of the moon! These photos have some interesting marks on them.


I will be very interested to learn what this peculiar image is. This is on a wall, same side as the window, there is nothing on the opposite wall to reflect off, and anyway, the sunshine comes from above and left of the window?


Some small orbs on this wall too!

The ceiling is white – unfortunately, showing as grey in these photos.


That brings us virtually up to date.  For the next few months we will be tidying up more ‘loose ends’,  spreading about 2o+ tons of gravel for the driveway, putting down a concrete slab for the carport and hopefully putting up the conservatory/veranda.

    Robert has excelled in completing such a great
    undertaking which looks fabulous inside and out.
    Pamela too – co-captain extraordinaire who has
    kept things going day- to – day and postings
    updates into the bargain. Now for the gravel and
    conservatory and verandah which will be the icing on the cake. Looks great already –
