Painting our loungeroom..

Hello Everyone, sorry its been so long in between posts.. time gets away from me so easy these days.. Working full time and now studying to get me into a full time Bachelor of Nursing course next year... Not a lot has been happening in the house for the same reasons above, but we are currently in the middle of painting the loungeroom a dark coffee colour. We have been trying to decide whether to paint the whole room or just one feature wall.. but with the other ideas we have for this room, i think painting all of it sounds like the way to go. _ ignore the furniture as its all out of place right now.. and I plan on replacing it with all new stuff.. one day soon I hope!
More pics to come soon..

I thought it was about time we had a wedding portrait done, since we have just celebrated our 10th year anniversary  lol 
I didn't want the traditional pic where we are sitting there posing.. so I chose this one.. 
We had it printed at Harvey Norman, and I must say the quality is very good.. Here is the finished product..

Its getting there!

Its starting to take shape now.. We have had a nightmare of a time over Christmas due to the the rain. As we hadn't had a chance to backfill yet, the water filled up on the outside of the pool, so we had to buy a pump and get it all out, then backfill quickly as more rain was coming.. There has been lots and lots of mud, but it is now finally starting to take shape and look a bit like it's meant to..
We still have to backfill a bit more and the pump is setup only temporary until Tim can concrete around the pool area and build a filter house.. but it works for now..
Pool fence is not yet quite finished yet. Tim still has to cut down the posts to the same level and add some sort of capping to them to stop them rotting from the top.. but isn't it looking great!!

Other than the pool we haven't been doing much over the Christmas break.. we bought a new couch for the family room
and planted some Syzygium australe 'Big Red" to our driveway (which needs mowing after all that rain!).. They grow approx 4m high and spread to 2.5m ( within 10 yrs), but claim to be fast growing. They have the most crimson foliages available with white flowers during summer followed by edible berries.. birds should love them!!
We added a new blind to the kitchen.. and redecorated the entry..
That's it for now..
Catch ya's next time
