Well today is the day we are supposed to finally have our deck built. Although it has been fun to jump the metre from the back door, it will be great to be done. For such a simple thing it has taken a couple of months to get organised. It had to go through council. It is just an open deck, less than a metre high, but it had to get approval. *sigh* This alone took 5 weeks. Finally came through, so we rang the deck people and they said, "oh yeah, should be able to do that in a couple of weeks time" Fair enough, I guess, I didn't really expect them to drop everything and come running... "Really, you're ready to go... Hang on... (in background).. Mike, Amanda is ready for her deck, quick, to the Deckmobile!"
So they came out and dug the holes for it last Wednesday, council had to come out and inspect the holes on Thursday (yep, that's a hole alright), and they were due to start the actual deck on Friday. Called them Thursday, and they said they weren't coming on Friday, but on Monday they would send out *two* teams, and would be able to *mostly* complete it.. hmm.. we'll see how it goes.
