We were blessed to be able to have John and Caitlin over for a week in January. Thankfully we caught the train and weren’t affected by the big fire, apart from having to have Red Rooster for dinner as the shelves were empty at Coles! We saw the sights of the town (that weren’t closed for the holidays!) including Grandma Kerr and Great-grandma Okely’s homes. We ripped up the carpet in the new house and washed all the ceilings and walls with sugar soap.
Then came the painting, we’ve been at it off and on for about a month now, but the end is well and truly in sight, and the house is looking gorgeous!
Lauren can to visit at the end of January and successfully panned for gold at the Hall of Fame and we appreciated her help with the painting. We took the train back to Perth to pick up our long lost Camry from Merredin and drove to Perth for Nathan and Anita’s wedding.
February has started well – we just got an offer on our first home, we are just praying it all goes smoothly.
