I know

You are all hanging out for photos aren't you!

I am slack! It's been crazy here, I havn't even taken any pics yet! But we are IN! YAY... Love the house! Though we are discovering a few quirks...

1. Old houses dont have many power points.
2. Floor boards are NO good in a toilet/bathroom. Wee soaks into the boards & no matter how much you scrub, the stench will not go away YUCK! (lucky a bathroom reno is on the cards first up eh!)
3. There is no normal t.v antena. A Foxtel one, yes. But I dont want Foxtel! ( I missed the Australian Idol Finale last night & I'm gonna miss Packed to the Rafters!! Woe is me!)
4. There is not enough cupboard space in the kitchen. (again, lucky a kitchen reno is on the cards second up)
5. Old houses dont come with fly screens. Poor Ella has been eaten alive by mozzies in her sleep!

So our "to do" list is growing... but I still LOVE all the character and charm our new [old] house has... no regrets...

I will post photos soon I PROMISE!!

At least your are in and the main thing is I watch Packed to the Rafters so I can tell you everything that happened and I watched Australian Idol Finale and Stan was such a humble winner... he deserved it.

Yay, you're in!

Re: the wee on the floor boards - try scrubbing with a 50/50 water and vinegar solution, then follow up with a product called Urine-Off, which you can buy online or in pet stores. Just so you can live with it until the reno...

I am so glad you're in! Hope you can find ways to deal with some of the things in your list :) Mozzie nets look quite romantic don't they?

It'll all work out soon. I can second vinegar for cleaning. That is all I use - for everything! Love it. Plus if it gets on your hands just add some hot chips and ENJOY!

LOL

You know I will associate vinegar & wee now lol... I bough some urine off today. Gonna give Femina's suggestion a whirl. I cannot stand the smell!

Don't buy "Urine-Off"! Go to the pet shop and get "Piss-Off"!

Why settle for second best?
