 the Bathroom is compact , but the  hot water makes  up for it, the shower is amazing .
 Lets just say my project  list for the weekend is long.
 the living room window look west to the setting sun, overlooking the next suburb.

 it s Lockwood house which means the internal walls are wood no sheet rock . an open standing fire place .
Moving day will be august 25.
there is some plumbing that needs attention and the roof and fence need painting . projects for the summer .
 the garden will be never ending, i have so many great ideas for the garden.

 6 the Bollard Whitby.
 a subburb full of navy and sailing terms and captain cook  names.
