THE HELENSBURGH HOUSE

The first and most important step towards success is the expectation that we can succeed.

Merry Christmas

Yesterday we finished P:-)'s Christmas shopping. I am quite proud of the way I shop for Christmas. I usually know what I am buying and I go and buy it.I plan the shops, plan the route and off we go. In a couple of hours we had done all the shopping for P:-)'s children, grandchildren, sisters and friends.

P:-) was keen to see his daughter's house in Helensburgh so we went there in the afternoon. I have written about it occasionally but I will do a quick recap.

M and B, P:)'s daughter and son-in-law bought an old miner's cottage in Helensburgh. Unfortunately I only have pictures of the outside once it was painted and re-roofed.

They gutted the inside of the house and relined it all and redid the floors.

The house has 2 main rooms - a bedroom and a loungeroom. There is a tiny kitchen and a bathroom that is still underway.

 P:-) and I are off for a few days to Sanctuary Point not far from Nowra down the coast. We will take the trusty caravan of course, but I won't be able to blog for a few days.
