My shower completion is still be some weeks away :-( But the glass splashback has been measured and a template will be checked next week. Then once that is installed the shower screen guy will be back for final measurements and then it'll be another couple of weeks. So close.. yet still so far! ARRrgghhhh but at least it will be the way I wanted it ;-)I'm glad I hung in there....

The latest addition to my metal art collection from the celebrated artist Jenny Crossley- Somerset! Or is that Jenny Somerset-Crossley (as Somerset is really her middle name)

Jasmine is back in her kennel today. She LOVED her kennel last year, but lately would not have a bar of it. I decided to give it a wash today and found the reason why she didn't want to go near it! And as you can see she is back to enjoying it again.

It's that time of year again - the best Craft show in Australia! Unfortunately the purse strings will have to be drawn in a bit with the arrival of the Monaro. I have made a few atc's to swap.

And am looking forward to finally meeting the interstate girls from the yahoo group I host - arty_oz!

At last!!!! I am able to see that I will soon have a shower again. It has only been 21 months! The hard part was finding someone who could do what I wanted! After one false start I found a great builder/plumber.... Matt.

"We" went out today with the Monaro club. Not a good start - arrived late at the meeting point and missed them. Only missed them by a little as it happened. I was beginning to wonder how I was going to drive and also read the directions I had printed out via whereis? when suddenly I spied a Monaro, then another then another ... Much relief! We had a lovely lunch at the Erica pub and then most of us went on to Walhalla. There were some gorgeous roads. Coming back there was only one 4 wheel drive in my way and he must have thought the CV8R looked a bit scary, as he kindly pulled over and let us past! I didn't hoon too much as I am still getting used to my new wheels. I must say in the climbs up the hills the extra horses were great! So I had a really enjoyable day and found the club very friendly. Apparently there is another lady in the club with a car like mine!!!

I started renovating my unit almost 2 years ago... 18 months ago my friend Pete and I ripped the shower out, but of course me being me didn't want any ordinary shower to replace it, so between having problems finding a tradey who shared my vision of what I wanted my bathroom to look like and the saga of my back problems - it has turned into the renovation-from-hell. But anyway i think it's back on track and when it's finished , it will hopefully have a big WOW! factor!

Hmmnn nice yellow - goes with my lounge suite! That is just the water proofing compund and it pongs!!!! It will be so nice to have a shower again. It will be a little way off yet as I want to have glass splashbacks...but at least progress is being made!

More of my renovations can be found in an album here

Well my craft room is finally finished! All that remains is to finish organising it. i love my new tele!

I am trying to teach Jasmine to sit where she is sitting now, but she just LOVES to stand between the keyboard and the screen.

Note the step stool in the corner of the photo. I had a letter from the vet recently reminding me her shots are due. She is classed as a geriatric now! - not that I have told her that. I keep the step stool nearby as I don't like her jumping down on to the concrete. I have noticed that she is slowing down a bit and she is starting to get some stiffness. Well she is "70'!
