Don’t Fence Me In

21 Sep

I feel like I’ve got so much to blog about at the moment so I’m going to get another one off my chest!!

We got Ralph (the dog) about 4 weeks ago now and we’ve had to take him out to the loo on a lead because our house isn’t fully fenced… yet!  We had a super productive weekend, and thanks to the ripper weather on Sunday we managed to knock up a fence so we’re now officially one step closer… Ralph’s stoked, he told me so!

Although Matt’s an accountant, he’s pretty darn practical around the house .  After a couple of trips outside, coffee, a measuring tape, calculator, more coffee and a super drawing we were armed with a shopping list.  We made a quick trip down to Placemakers on Thorndon Quay and $94  later we were at home with all we needed to get cracking!

As you can see it’s holding up pretty well…

Fence doing the job

Fence... doing the job

The end result turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself!  We just need to knock up a gate, and trim the top of the fence posts (by hand, joy!)  Next step is a vege patch down a long the side of the house, yay!!

And some exciting news to end the day… After months of procrastinating we’ve finally manged to get My Sky, which is being installed on Monday.  And… After 2 months without, we’re getting our new wardrobe installed on Thursday, WOO HOO!!

    In order, my favourite things about this blog are…

    1. Ralph in centre stage!!! Awwww he’s cute
    2. That you and Matty managed to build a fence without a builder – how very DIY of you both…. I would have started looking for selotape! 😉
    3. That the wood cost $94!! (Well, not made of wood!)
    4. Just that you blogged about it! Good girl… it looks great xo
