The Block

Today, visited the above for the first time in about 3 weeks, very disappointed to see that the huge truck that was there three weeks ago, is still parked on our block.   But there seems to be some progress and it looks like they have started putting services in and the road has definitely been levelled in preparation for the real thing eventually.  

I also met our neighbour down the road Kylie at her house which is just at lock up stage.
What a lovely lady, in the future I can see many a late night will be  spent down there in her purpose-built scrapbooking room!!

Everybody needs good neighbours

This week we received another letter from the conveyancer to advise that "Due to unforeseen circumstances" our stage will not settle until December!!!  Talk about waving that carrot in front of someone's nose then taking it away - bummer!!!  Oh well, patience is a virtue I suppose.

On a brighter note,  we met the most delightful people today and had a spot of afternoon tea with Raelene & Laurie (aka Reinsey & Loz) who are building on Stage 11.   We clicked immediately and shared our experiences with the building process to date.   It is so nice to know that we will have such nice neighbours in our new area, and we all look forward to meeting more as time goes on.
