We have been busy here at the villa, making ourselves comfortable. We have installed some roman blinds to various windows and french doors .... all looking really good! We're awaiting a fence to be put up out the front, to keep Jess the border collie safe and sound. I'm trying to be patient, although the fence is taking forever! We found a new rug - deep red! ... then added a couple of jewel red and orange cushions... and now we have a warm, rich and inviting living room.
Our quest to get our garage liveable is ongoing and there are still a couple of things to move on, before we can put a car in there.... And we have bought a new one! A shiny, silver Hyundai i20 hatch, eco car of the year in 2010, NRMA small car of the year 2011! It will be delivered in a couple of weeks, and we're very excited! It's been more than 20 years since we've had a brand new car and I feel very spoiled!
