Cold and Wet

Have I told you I don’t like the cold? Well I don’t. Never have, never will. It’s June in Sydney and not only is it cold but it’s been so wet too. We’ve actually had our average June rainfall in the first 12 days of the month.

Rain, rain and more rain in Sydney

Naturally the day the excavator arrived on our building site, the rains came tumbling down. They did manage to get the excavation done and we now have a very unique selling point for our property – two swimming pools!

Two Swimming Pools

Thank goodness the sun came out again on Sunday and there is no rain forecast for the rest of this week. With a bit of luck we’ll have some footings and a slab laid by Friday. Woo Hoo!

Lots of Mud

I’ve been busy with clients too. I think they are feeling the cold because two of them are in the market for rugs.

Navy Blue Rug

I have sourced a number and have shown them the images. Now we have compiled a short list and I will borrow the rugs from my wholesale supplier and take them to the house to put them in their living room so we have a full understanding of how they will look in their home with their furnishings.

Blue Floral Rug

It’s so important to be able to see your purchases in your own space before outlaying any money.

Black and White Rug

We installed some roman blinds at a clients’ home last week too. Roman blinds are great for adding some colour or pattern to a space but still give a more streamlined look as opposed to curtains.

Guest Bedroom Roman Blinds

In this case we were covering windows in a guest bedroom and a 12 year old girl’s bedroom.

I hope you’ve had a good week. I’m heading over to the house to meet with our builder and see if that cement truck has arrived yet.
