I got these drums for nothing from a factory I used to work at a number of years ago, they have only had food products in them so just with a wash out they will come handy for storing feed for the animals and storing water in. The black ones used to have gherkins in and have screw top lids which we have been using to bring water home from town.

Well the Council are supposed to be re-opening the road this friday so I planned to have the shop looking alive with two big signs out the front and balloons and I might even have a sausage sizzle to boot.

On another note the fires are still raging in Victoria and people are on high alert as the threat of fires is so unbelievable. The town of Toolangi is under ember attack some residents have evacuated and others are preparing to leave. The owners of a Tavern there have opened their doors to the firefighters, workers and locals and have provided them with food, accommodation and even a beer all free of charge. People have given their services as well to help the owners out with generators and volunteers are helping as cooks and waitresses. There are many stories of people helping and giving so much for these people that have lost everything.
I have abandoned my veggie patch at the moment with so much going on but it has been doing well with all the heat and now the rain. The only thing I will have to worry about is getting my stove reconnected, because Dave disconnected it when he moved it in the kitchen, and start making my tomato sauces and relishes with my booming crop of tomatoes :)
Jess has also moved down to Sydney to start a TAFE course so things have been quiet around with out her and we have both missed her. There will be the holidays coming up soon so she will be coming back to spend time with us. Hopefully by then the kitchen and bathroom will be finished and back in order :)
I appologise for the video below of the rescued koala not working as I am hopeless on these things but have now fixed the problem so if you you want to see this video please tried again :)

Please keep the Victorian people in your thoughts and prayers as well as all of the injured animals and the people helping and caring for them.

The plumbing was fairly simple and straight forward, thank goodness.
Look! All gone :) Oh and the drain pipe didn't have an S bend but when straight down and angled out to the pit so all the smell would sometimes come right back at you (phew). We used to keep the plug in the sink for this reason.
Finished this stage, some time later I will show you how we will do the tiling, moving the toilet, building the vanity and finishing touches. We are lucky to have some nice marble for the floor that a friend gave us, very nice :)

It didn't take Dave long to install it once he got his hands on it. The kitchen is looking more like a kitchen now, mind you I do have a sink on the other side of the wall which is the old kitchen that will be pulled out in the next 2 weeks. Dave just LOVES demolishing and he tidys up the mess as well and something even better is that it has hardly cost much and all that is to be done is flooring and painting.
This is my view I will have while I do my dishes, it looks out to the paddock and dam. The breeze comes through and the wind chimes make a noise and it is so peacefull. Oh by the way there will be fronts put on those drawers on the right hand side of the kitchen below.
These are the handles that will be on the doors and drawers they have an antique look and the skirting, top moulding and architraves around window and doors will be painted a cream same as the handle.
