New gates installed in the carport and lunch with friends

Hi there my family and friends....just look at this old gate, which I actually loved but it was time to update to something we can open and shut easily 

The man got to work on removing the timber panels, piece by piece....

These were 2 very large sturdy gates, but they had dropped so the opening and shutting was getting very hard to do.....

Gates removed and you can see MY car...I have had this Nissan Patrol for 14yrs and still love it....

The other side of carport and what I call, the man's car DX Max although we do share and this one tows the Winjana ☺
All ready for the fencing guy to come and install.....

You can see the new green colour bond gates on the side

Another distance shot looking in..... 

New gates closed and looking good....

From the other side....very happy we are with these, and they were installed while I went to visit my Mum and also catch up with some friends for lunch last week ☺

I was meeting my friends at this very large park called Jells park....

And they had booked a table at the cafe here called Madeline's at Jells 

I had not been here before and was looking forward to lunch with friends....my friend Loo Loo took this for me with my new mobile phone which I love....

There is a selfie of the 2 of us ☺☺

And another with my dear longest friend, whom we both have birthday's in April ☺☺

I got everyone to do a few selfies around the table ☺

There was supposed to be another face in this pic also but someone ducked back......

And there she is with the glasses smiling sneakily lol 

Do you think my dear friend will mind me putting this pic here lol Luv ya besty xoxo

I had a yummy chicken burger without the roll or chips....

She had a great beef thai salad....

There was also some yummy vegetable soup too 

The waitress took this shot for us, so you can see us all together....
It was good to catch up with them all in between my visiting Mum....I saw her before lunch then drove back to visit again for a bit longer....
All I can say is she is going ok, not great, but ok and thank you for your well wishes.....
Lots of driving back and forth but that is ok, just missing from my blog a little ♥

Bathroom finished, birthday family visit and Mum

Hello there, here is how the bathroom looked before that renovation......we were happy with it, but oh my what a change now......

Extra loo and shower

Large bath which I am yet to soak in, but my 2nd grandson has and said it was awesome

The basin and shaving cabinet....thank you for watching this in progress and now finished ☺

I arrived back home on Saturday to this wonderful rainbow rose which the man bought me as a surprise and birthday too ☺☺

They apparently split the stem and put each part in food colour dye and leave for a day or 2 till the petals look like this ☺

Pretty neat and did make me happy as was needed......

Also on Saturday these 2 came for a visit and tea, how cute are they ☺ 

Also my girl and her fella 

The man and his youngest son

My 2nd grandboy who enjoyed that bath ☺

And who do we have here all blurry.....

It is Trixie, the new puppy for my son and his wife ♥

A bit of fun wrestling went on.....

Look at that cute face ☺

She even has been trained to roll over but that ended in a big blur......
It was real nice to have them visit as things are not that great at the moment, so have been typing this over the last week.....

I am putting this rainbow rose here again for my mum who was admitted to hospital last Friday and not doing real well.....but do know she would love this rose ♥
And I am going to have a long soak in that bath tonight ready for the next few days

The good and the bad......fun times

Hello friends and family ☺ Do you own a crock pot (slow cooker)? I have had this little beauty since I was married way back in 1977 either engagement present or wedding present so roughly 37 yrs old! And it still works although the marriage didn't lol  but as said before we get on fine....hope I don't moz myself and it......this was the GOOD ☺and this was on Easter Monday

I love making some real tasty soups in it and this one was a lovely lentil veg one and enjoyed it for breakfast over a few days ☺ Yes I can eat soup for breakfast, love having anything different in the mornings.....Going to be making a great Indian chicken dish for when family come on Saturday. I had my birthday yesterday (Tuesday) and is the same day as my girl; who I had on my 21st way back in 1978 lol.  And we are getting together here at my home ☺☺ and will use that crock pot for that dish.

Back on to the bathroom....while I did that cooking the man continued on with putting up laminate trims in a nice grey....

I helped by ripping off the plastic off that lovely big bath......and in the mean time!

This was discovered.....a LEAK from 2 pipes, inside the brand new basin cabinet.......so the man removed the basin cabinet and took it outside....it was water damaged! In this picture you can see a little heater trying to dry out the floor and wall.....this was the BAD 

One of the dripping pipes with piping and taps removed.....and this was with the water turned off at the mains.....

Just a token amount of water which was collected over the day and of course being Easter Monday a holiday so the plumber was away......grrrrrr 

The poor cabinet.....

It had heaps of mould growing too as we worked out the leak had been for a WEEK.....and hidden because inside the cabinet.....

So yesterday, Tuesday that young plumber came back and repaired the pipes and made sure to fit another brand new basin cabinet ☺☺ That is his coffee cup on our air con unit and he did do a good job and very apologetic.....

And for now we are keeping some paper towel in the cabinet just to make sure all ok......
We went out for tea for my birthday to a local bowling club and had a nice relaxing time after this event lol, even caught a taxi so we could have a little red wine or three ☺☺

The man today (Wednesday) now back to continuing on finishing little bits here and there.....

Lovely big mirrored shaving cupboard all installed, clever man I have ☺☺

And in between this fun time week I worked on my Sophie blanket, I think it calmed me down lol lol 
How has your Easter been?
Take care and I will be back with a final reveal of the finished bathroom ☺☺
