They're Here!!

Earlier in the week I mentioned that I had cleaned out a space in the garage for a delivery I was expecting...

The delivery has arrived! It's probably not overly exciting for anyone except Sean and I... it's our floor tiles!!

I am beyond exciting. We have been living in this house - with concrete floors - for three years now. We are finally going to have tiles :)

(Our wet areas are already tiled and our bedrooms and front room have carpet, but we have 82 square metres of living area that we need to tile.)

The cutest thing happened when the tiles were delivered... Max was convinced that the delievery guy was his Uncle Mark. I was holding him on my hip and he kept saying 'Mark, Mark', I told him that it wasn't his Uncle Mark, but I don't think he believed me.

I put him down in the garage so that I could take some photos and he walked halfway up to the delivery guy and started saying 'Mark' to him. The guy took off his sunnies and started talking to Max, Max got really confused then. His little voice started to shake and he kept asking me for Mark. So sweet. As the guy drove his forklift out of the driveway Max started shaking all over (I think the noise of the forklift scared him) and said 'bu-bye Mark' over and over again. Awwwwww.


In a couple of weeks Sean's Dad and Brother (Mark) are going to be coming down to help us lay the tiles. It's going to be our biggest DIY to date and I can't wait!


  1. Ahhh, this is a great pressie! Love how gorgeous Max looks sitting on top of the tiles.


  2. OOOOOH! I'd be super pumped too! Looking forward to 'after' pics :)

  3. Oh I can imagine your excitement!!

  4. wow, thats intimidating! I want to tile my laundry wall and I am intimidated enough by that! You go, girl~

  5. Woo hoo. Looking forward to the end result!

  6. I can't wait to have it done so that I can share before and afters!
