In just under two weeks, the roofers will arrive to completely replace the roof of Big House. That means the overhanging trees need to be cut back ASAP, and that massive aerial removed. (Austar, here we come...!)
It's a good thing the overhanging tree is being cut back, because it's dropping some fairly unwelcome guests into the house... We found this tree snake behind some VJs Dan removed yesterday. Dan moved him on, but he came back today to find his little home destroyed and seemed at a loose end.
Tree snakes are a little aggressive but not venomous, so he can hang around until we work out how to get him down from there safely and relocate him to the trees, far away from the house...
This gives an insight into where we're up to in the kitchen/dining space. The VJs in the kitchen have been removed and that aluminium window you can see straight ahead is now out. The new timber window will be fitted tomorrow.
Finally, I just love this photo so I'm sharing it. It's Lucinda and her Grandfather in the paddock, looking for wild ducks.
Happy weekend, all!
