Subtle Hint taken.......

Well the painting is coming along at a steady pace.   Just finished the entry foyer and dining room today!   The colour is called Subtle Hint and I'll post a cuppla photos once all the furniture is back in place tomorrow.  Next week I will do the Lounge Room on my days off.

In the meantime....here are the photos of the English Castle we used in the Rumpus Room.   Very happy with the way this turned out.   The colour appears a browny, muddy colour in the tin and when on the wall under the lamplights it has a slight plum tinge to it.  It looks great with the white trim.  Here are the photos.......

Lachlan is in Sydney for another training course.   He left yesterday and returns tomorrow.

Kim and I are in the throws of sorting out quotes for our bathroom and ensuite renovations.   We had a minor heart attack when we went back to the store we chose our tiles from and they didnt have any on the shelf -- AArrrrggghhhhhh.......however, another store has them in stock so we will be hitting that place very soon!   Hopefully those renovations can be started in the next month.   It's not gonna be a nice sight....the whole family using our ensuite for a week or 2 whilst the main bathroom is out of action.   Might have to send the kids out the back yard with a trenching tool and a roll of toilet paper..........   hahahahaha.....

Not much else has happened really......work and paint, work and paint......but it's worth it in the long run.   Hopefully we will be finished the majority by the time my holidays come around in July!

That all for now......take care everyone!!

Painting and re-Decorating

That's all the excitement that has been happening in the Jordan Household lately.

We painted the Rumpus Room in English Castle.   It is a great dark colour that looks dark brown in the daylight but when the lamps are on at night there is a definite plum tone to it.   It looks fantastic with the white trim.   I will post some photos soon.   We have just started on the dining/lounge/foyer areas and within 2 weeks [all going well!] they should be done also.

We have what appears to be a good quote for getting the bathrooms done over.   New floor tiles, shower screens and vanity.   It will be  welcome change from the really older style that they look now.

I picked up my pushbike from Leos' the other weekend after it had been languishing in his shed for the last 12 months; it's had its service and is now back on the road.   Cant wait for the weather to pick up so I can pack up the camera and go riding.   There is so many more places to access on the bike than there is with the car.

I dont have a photo to include in this update but thought I would include one of my fav songs from Crosby, Stills & Nash.  This is called Wooden Ships and the clip is of the preparations for Woodstock.

Hope you enjoy the new look of my blog, I figured the old one was getting a bit bland!

By the way, the links that appear in the blogs below this one are some new projects that I have been working on recently.   Although I enjoy Flickr to show off my photos, I thought it would be great if I had my own site exclusively.   I discovered this site called www.wix.com  which allows anyone to set up their own site.   It is really great and I have actually set up 2 sites; one for my photos and the other for a Jordan Family History site.   I can also upload documents and pdf files which is great for the Family History site.

The link for my photo site is ...   http://www.wix.com/PeteJordan/Jordys-Productions
and the link for the Family site is ...   http://www.wix.com/petejordan/a-jordan-family-history
The family history site is a work in progress but....so far....so good!

Hope you're all well and healthy.



Quick trip to Brisbane.

Hit Brissy up last weekend.  My Niece was getting married and it was a family get together that I did not want to miss out on!  She looked ...
