These are the somewhat random and often scattered thoughts of the Marr family members about almost anything - what we are currently doing on the web, recent outings (as distinct from being 'let out'), any interesting stoushes we have had or are trying to have with any one or thing that annoys us, things happening around us, etc. etc.

It's a blue roof, and the windows are a pane .......
Progress continues on the Villa, but still no action on fixing the internal wall and making the space above the lounge window for the air-conditioner. The latter is a little bit of a worry, as the Supervisor only measured it (at my prompting) today and found that the window was too high to allow for the air-conditioner. Will leave it in their hands at the moment.
Completion day is now looking like late October, which will be good - the sooner the better.
Nearly all of the roof is now on - darkish blue colourbond (and we're going to have a RED front door, too). Wall insulation starting to creep around the outside and some of the windows are in - you can start to see how the bay windows in the main bedroom will look. These will provide a nice view down the Court and should provide a great area to sit and lap up the morning sun.
We don't have to worry about any problems with the cat when we shift. Unfortunately, Maisie, our little pet of about 14 years died during the week - so she has been buried here with various other past members of our menagerie.
Things are looking promising as far as selling our house in Ziegler Parade, but more on that later (hopefully). We have just had a building inspector in to check everything out, in preparation for any future sale and the old place came through with flying colours.
