And yet again things are happening quicker than expected!

We weren’t expecting plaster hangers until NEXT Monday at the earliest … and Mr Tasmania has emailed me to say he’s meeting with the plasterer this arvo and the hangers will start on Wednesday. The electrician is also heading up this arvo to finish up his preliminaries ie putting in the light cables he missed the first time round (and a couple of extras we’ve added) so the plasterers will be able to pull all the cables through as they go.

So we’re now on a very speedy hunt for painters, to start probably in 2 or 3 weeks! We were all set to paint ourselves but have had to face the fact that we just don’t have the time to get it done .. we both work full time five days a week and at this time of the year it’s only just light when we leave for work and dark when we get home – so painting is not going to happen during the week. It is also coming into the coldest part of the year so painting on the weekend (which appears to be when our worst weather happens of course!) will only be able to happen if it’s above 10deg C (otherwise the paint slides off the wall!) …. So we are just going to have to bite the bullet and hire a painting or two. Still, if ever we’re going to pay for painting to be done it’s now, so that’s just how it’s going to have to be.

God is looking after us, just as we think it’s slowing down it starts speeding up again … you never know, we may yet move in in September, instead of October like I’m planning!
