We have had heaps of fun over the past two days. My bro Duncan and his wife Sylvia brought our cousin Lyall and his wife Cathryn down to visit. I have not seen Lyall for 12 years and it is near on 30 since he came here so it was a real extra special treat to see them again.
Here we all are – cuzzies three. Duncan with the beard and Lyall with none! I’m in the red shirt and Cat with the red hair – just in case you couldn’t tell
Sylvia happily ensconced herself on the end of the wharf with her fishing rod – we had to drag her in screaming and kicking after dark for dinner Cat just walked about in a breathless haze talking wondrously about the paradise she had landed in. Lyall was just happy to be back and had a smile on his face the whole time.
Today we went up to Waterfall to examine the bathroom tiling job and take notes. Duncan is a builder so we were getting a second opinion. We really feel that the operations manager of the Flooring company is shafting us as they are putting off coming down to assess the job. Both Duncan & Lyall agree that is is a very substandard job and not at all done in a tradesman like manner. So we will definitely be standing our ground.
On the way back Tim got a feed of mussels for the cuzzies – they were fair drooling when they saw them come up out of the water.
Nathan took Lyall fishing and then Sylvia. He likes to give his passengers thrills
While we had some extra man power we got them to help move the chicken house that we had been given. It has been built like a proverbial brick outhouse and is extremely heavy. Anyway, with a few ropes and a few grunts and heaves the three guys got it down the orchard, right side up in a better position to give the chickens a warmer, dryer place to live. Now Tim & Shannie have to finish it with perches and nesting boxes.
