The only problem with you pull out something like this you end up with BIG HOLES!!!But as you can see we now have something much more workable and once the retaining wall has been rebuilt it will look great. I'm going to paint the iron fence once we get everything else done too :)
By the time we got all that done it was time for a quick lunch and then back off to the green waste dump. The ladies who run the place really are wonderful... they've always got a smile for you and in a funny way I'm going to quite miss going out to see them. From here on in we'll have to go to the landfill site and they're not nearly as nice over there :(
After we emptied the trailer it was back to Bunnings for nails, bolts, cement and POSTS! I have to admit that it was a good bit of retail therapy because it means that we really are making progress! Once we got home we ripped down ALL of the old fencing... my poor neighbour had a bit of a heart attack until we explained that we are actually going to put up a brand new fence LOL The kids next door go to my school and they've been keeping a pretty close eye on the happenings across the fence!We've kept the palings from the driveway fence because they were in really good condition and I spent some time denailing them... not the quickest job in the world when some of them had up to 18 nails per paling!Luckily for us NONE of the old posts were concreted in so they've all come out quite easily and they're now sorted out and ready to go on the trailer and off to the dump... and see Mum I DO tidy up!!! LOLI'm really looking forward to tomorrow because we're all ready to get stuck in and make some real progress but in the meantime I'm off for a much needed shower and then Dave and I are going out to our favourite Indian restaurant for dinner YUM!!!
