8 08 2009

It’s finished, and it’s very cute – in that classic sheddie kinda way…

Pa, of course, is way happy, and not only because security operative Lola is already dutifully padding the perimeter…

…but more because of this…

…he moved the Morrie and the ‘B in first thing this morning…

Megsie, meanwhile, is way happy because of this (…as in finally out of the house!…)

We’re sharing the satisfaction, darlings, and it’s a be-ewdiful thang.

(We figured we’d best mark the occasion – it ain’t gunna be cute and tidy for long…)

Slab Fest…

3 08 2009

Saturday was Slab Fest at the hide-out. It dawned clear and windless (and frosty crisp) – the perfeck scenario for a pour-a-thon…

T’was a happy day all round – topped off with those two other indispensable slab-o-rama staples; the slab(or two) of beer and the slab of meat (as in a whole eye fillet, naturally.) Wish you woz here.

Bloody marvellous.

Progress snaps here.

Yeah, yeah, we know – it ain’t Grand Designs. But we’re chuffed nonetheless. Things were moving on apace this morning…

Security co-ordinator Lola has had a particularly busy morning, as you can no doubt imagine…





Red letter day at the hide-out…

27 07 2009

Darlings!! Serious excitement on the Gang front – earthworks began this morning on Pa’s shed – which means, of course, that we’re one step closer to Megsie’s workshop. Yeehar!!

 

Darrel-&-Parksie-&-Lola

Darrel, Parksie and Lola have a quick confab before digging in…
