Do it yaself mate…

February 19, 2017

 I thought the next post was going to be the final post on the Lakeside project, but oh no, the last push was just that wee bit harder than it really needed to be!


 Some of you may know, my partner/ builder Jason is also a very keen kitesurfer. Too keen some may say. Last Saturday, an hour before my mothers wedding, he thought It would be superb timing to go out and practice a new move… (Double back roll?) kind of sounds like something the caterer was serving, but as luck & lack of practice would have it, it turns out Jason's not very good at back rolls and crashed quite badly, ripping all his tendons and juicy bits away from his rib cage. That was minor compared to the pain he endured from the countless death looks I threw at him  from across the room throughout the evening at Mums wedding! Some people say I am good at it. This means Jason’s not very good for much at the moment! Timing is epic. 


 So this past week, I have been Builder Kris. I just put the T-shirt on, and joined Drew in finishing the house off. Ourselves. We completed the landscaping, spread gravel, cleaned, water blasted, got totally freaked out by the driveway acid- so did our new grass… and had many laughs. I quite like this being a builder thing. I am getting pretty good at putting the trailer on and backing it! Only fell over once! 


 I have to say, humans, we are so adaptable, It surprises me, our ability to just crack on. Even when we think its too hard… Just put the T-shirt on and #doityaselfmate. You might surprise yourself


Planted some Punga's... so Kiwi.











 Entry Hall... Planted some hybrid Punga's that would cope with the heat. I believe this type is know as Diksonia Fibrosa. Very hardy.

Jason kitesurfing out at Waikuku Beach- a few weeks back.  

 Me? Tired? Nooooo...... (ZZZzzzz...)
