House Warming

What an amazing group of friends and family we have! We just had the best nigth on Saturday celebrating our housewarming and our birthdays (big fat 28). There was so much food (thanks Dad for the spit roast), an enormous bonfire, lights (finally) that Waz hooked up that afternoon and plenty of chatting and catching up! The house is just so well designed to host, the kids had their space, there were planty of places to park your butt, some chilled music and warmth! We were gifted wine to drink and cash for the garden and gorgeous cards from our special friends and family and we are SO grateful! I love that we've created a space that others can freel enjoy and feel comfortable in. I love having a house full of ppl and that we had heaps of help cleaning up and our home was respected and cared for. Thanks everyone! And for those of you who haven't had the pleasure of a visit you're welcome whenever you like, we can't wait to share our space with you.
On the practical side, we achieved a lot in the week coming up to the party. We had more curtains hung, carpet laid (finally) in the top bedroom, walls painted, tools tidied up, paintings hung, LIGHTS hung in the kitchen, laundry and entry, blinds finished, more fencing completed, paths built...the list goes on. The house was in very good order when everyone started to arrive. Huge thanks to Claudia for all her help and the boys for behaving reasonably well as Waz had a call out and didnt get home til 1pm (eek!)
SO I've finally uploaded some photos off the they are...
