While I was busy Dave got stuck in with the builders line (and it is a very cool pink) and some spray paint (I picked the purple because it looked so cool LOL) and marked out where the posts are going. He's started digging out the post holes and lets just say that it has been a VERY hot day here so they're not finished yet.This afternoon we decided to take some time off to enjoy the weather so we took the girls out to Hannah's Bay for a swim in the lake... and I left the camera at HOME!!! I've been so caught up in taking progress photos that I didn't even think to take the camera LOL
We got back and Dave was exhausted so he's watching a video but I was feeling a bit frustrated with the progress so I decided to test out the new fence colours on the deck. I LOVE them!!! Even Mikayla and Krystal thought they looked good... in fact Mikayla said that the deck is started to look 'sophisticated'... thanks for that Mikayla cause it made me feel awesome! Here's a sneaky look at the colours:
It's a little hard to tell from the photos but the colours really bring out the grain of the wood and my Yuccas look absolutely fantastic up against the deck fencing now :)
Can't wait to get back into it tomorrow now :) Thank you to everyone that is making comments... and thanks Mum for your emails!!! Here's a snippet of the email Mum sent me last night (just loved it!) Oh... My........Stars. Look what you have done !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's absolutely amazing.
p.s. Dinner last night was fantastic... it was so nice to get cleaned up and I even put on some make up and blow waved my hair (it definitely doesn't happen very often!). The food and service were both excellent and when we couldn't finish our meal they made up a 'doggie bag' so that we could take it home to the girls... they loved it too! Plus we went for a wander around the lakefront so it was a really lovely evening :)
