State of play - May

We had another peek at the apartment on Saturday. The painters were adding final touches but were very tolerant of our sticky beaks! We saw progress in the kitchen (the overhead cupboards are in).......

And the fridge, dishwasher and clothes dryer were all in position (although in the pic below the fridge in the "scullery" is sitting a way out from the wall, no doubt because of the painting in progress).
The Astra Walker "aged brass" tapware is only partially installed (the shower set below needs a shower rose)......We're not sure we would have chosen this finish if it was left up to us.. but I'm sure we'll get used to it.... and we're assured it's very high quality (and expensive, apparently!)
The deep marble architraves finish off the living spaces nicely and the blinds for the living room and winter garden have been delivered - ready for installation.
We're a week away from our official pre-settlement inspection now, and it looks like the apartment could easily be finished off (and CLEANED) in that time with some concentrated effort.. Woohoo!!!!
We were visiting the C5 precinct with the girls on Saturday for the "Campbell Festival". Abi gave up waiting to have her face painted (queues were too long) and had a game of tennis instead with a very lovely member of the Campbell Tennis Club. The club was out spruiking for new members - but I'm not sure Rob nor I would fit the bill (we're both pretty hopeless with bats & balls!). We'll have to leave it up to Abi I think!
