Masses to do today....

First off we must go and pay for Lacy's storage facility before we can get her stuff out of there this weekend.

Then she needs contents insurance when she moves into the house, so we will go to the AA, they have fair prices.

And power!  The house actually has the power on, but it needs the meter read and Lacy needs to choose a power provider.

After that, I need to buy curtain tracks for the two bedrooms, to hang the two sets of curtains on that I won at auction last night:

 ABOVE:  curtains for Lacy's room...

ABOVE:  curtains for Miss Muppet's room.

I got both sets for $40 all up.  And I have my eye on three matching curtains/blinds for Lacy's lounge/dining room.... hoping like hell I get them as they are really nice.

Lacy has just spent almost an hour trying to get a power company to provided her with power.  *sigh*  It is sorted now, thank goodness.

Now we can go do what we have to this morning....

Righty ho.... storage sorted, pick up all her stuff by sunday night.
Bought two curtain tracks... done.
Bought more towels... done.

Home and watching me latest curtain auction... it's for a roman blind for her lounge and matching curtains for her french doors.
If I miss out on these, I have me eye on another set on Trademe too.

Almost lunch time... going to have a toasted sandwich me thinks....


Wooo hoooo !  I won my latest curtain auction, and Lacy and I have already been out and collected them, and bought another curtain track for the french doors in the lounge.

ABOVE: And there they are.  Big roman blind for the big window in the lounge, and drapes for the french doors.  A bit 'gaudy', but they are really good quality, and the perfect fit for the lounge.  While there seems to be masses of curtains for sale on Trademe, so many of them are the wrong size.  So I feel lucky to have found matching ones for the lounge.

All we need now is one for the dining room, which is an extention of the lounge, so a plain curtain in either blue or lilac is what I'm hunting for now! 

End of Day:  a crazy busy day, but again, we got lots done.  Very happy.
ON TRACK:  nope, too busy means bad food choices.
nite nite.
