House Developments

Been slow on the house the last week or so. Lots of bits and pieces but no major milestones so to speak. That is until last night. Got the stairs in. Reminded me of the Led Zepplin song 'Stairway to Heaven".... Up and up. Will be OK once we have some side support installed. Long way to fall.

For those of you who are interested we've been busy on our aquaponic system new installation.

Alan and Wanna's aquaponic system

More to follow.

House Construction

Seem to spend all my time writing posts about my House Construction. I'll add a few more pages on day to day stuff in future. House has been going well. I'm hoping to complete most of the work by the end of January. Then we'll do some concreting round the side and under the orchids etc. I then plan to add in an irrigation system etc. All very much retirement stuff......

We have a Spirit House in the garden which overlooks our house. The Spirits who live there have seen a lot of activity of the last few months. They haven't complained to date!

House Construction

Getting on with the house. Seems to preoccupy nearly all of our time. Except for our aquaponics system.  That as a project is also coming on well. Check my link. siam-aquaponics
Was going to have a sort of boring colour but thought lime green suitable. Fits in really well.

Country Scene

Saw these beautiful animals haves a little cool down. Water Buffalo. Wonderful.

Jetty lighting

Spent the whole day adding lights and power to our jetty. Steve came over to do the main work. In fact he really did it all. Kredo our neighbour and I helps pulling cables etc but not a great deal else.... During all this hte dogs wandered about showing very little interest except to find the most inconvenient places to lay down. Still in spite of their efforts to get in the way we got the job done.  Lights and power sockets should get commissioned tomorrow.

End Of 2012 And Beginning Of 2013

We had our party.  Went very well. Local tradition is everyone brings a small present and they all get raffled off. Lots of fun. Also everyone helped with the lighting, music and food. Wonderful get together. We also had lanterns and fireworks. I missed the fireworks , went to bed early...

That's it.  May all you resolutions be kept if you so wish.  But of course that's up to you..  :)
