Last Saturday, R snapped his achilles in a footy match, resulting in a visit to the emergency room and a sad and sorry sidelined footballer three games in to the season. So much for an injury free season and all that preseason prep-work thrown out the window. Poor R! He isn't as young as he thinks he is! just jokes...
Anyway, he had surgery last wednesday and didn't come out of hospital until Good Friday and was under strict instructions to keep his heavily plastered leg elevated at all times. There went our Easter Trip to our caravan in Deniliquin...i think R was more disappointed that he was missing out on the traditional Easter Golf Game with the Deni Crew if you ask me (me on the other hand thinks i would much prefer playing nurse maid to him with his bung foot than handling a very inebriated golfer at the end of the day! ha!). Guess the highlight of this weekend was being able to catch up on some much needed sleep, so i shouldn't complain :)
But i digress, this is also supposed to be about the house.
So, in between the shuttling between work and the hospital, I did manage to get on site to see if anything more happened as we were told the slab would be laid last week. We caught up with our SS visiting the site last Monday so had a meet and greet and update on the expected happenings. Apparently the trenching was to have been done that day but there was machinery breakdown so it was going to happen hopefully Tuesday.
|Glad to see our SS with intitiative. After visiting and seeing the gates left wide open one day, this sign was slapped on and now no worries about people getting onto the block. YAY!|
|The pipes are in - oooh something is happening! YAY!|
|The dinted shed. Must've happened when they were digging the trench (See bottom of pic)|
|:( hope rust doesn't set in!|
|The polystyrene mountain has something to do with the slab :)|
|Nice and flat and compacted|
