Going to the chapel...


Bubu has gotten down on one knee and proposed! To Mumu!

Best weekend va-cay at Young ever~~!!!

Its been five and a half years since we started dating and bubu remembered that I have always wanted to go cherry picking but never knew where people went to do it.

So, a trip was planned to go to Young about five months ago and what was thought to be a short vacation away from the stress of building our home and from work became a life-changing trip for me:)

I won't go into too much detail of how he did it because its a special moment I'd like to keep to ourselves. But a ring was planted on a Ron cherry before Ron got down on one knee and asked
"Will you pick me?"

My answer of course was a definitive yes!

And lucky me- I get to plan our wedding:) watch this space... I might share some wedding ideas soon after the house construction is complete:)

We've got cladding and you know it - Clap your hands!

CLAD your hands, CLAD CLAD your hands! (Far East Movement Style Bitches.....)

We finally have cladding! YIPPPEEEE (two thumbs up ^_^) I'm really digging the Southern Texas mini planation house look - cos let's face it... No one really builds the house Ryan built Rachel in the Notebook. But in my mind... our house is a close contender. Afterall, Bubu bought and built this house for me :) What more can a girl ask for? (edit: Build a house for your gf and its only second best......sigh FML)

It didn't take long for them to install and paint them either - just 3 DAYS! They still have to put the cladding up under the first floor front winodws but with the constant rain at night they havernt done anything for the whole week! ARGH.

Wonder what the builders will finish before Christmas! Maybe Santa will come by the unfinished house and leave a lil present for us!

Lock up shouldnt be too far away! Heres a sneak peak of the cladding.

Roof Roof!

Finally A Roof Over Our Heads :)

The house has certainly started to take shape and look like an actual house. Now we can actually squat without getting wet.

The weather of late has been slightly eratic with sudden bouts of rainfall and stinkin' hot 30 deg days (Don't you just love Sydney weather?) But you know what they say... what doesn't break ya' only makes you stronger... I just hope that principle applies to wooden frames and floor boards (Fingers crossed!!!).

We also have the guttering installed. We had chosen dune for the colour of the gutters but Bubu is almost certain that the colour installed is cream and not quite the colour we had chosen.

I've taken two looks at the shade and saw nothing wrong with it.

Bubu had a brilliant idea which is to take the gutter colour swash to the gutters installed and compare them to make sure the gutters being used are indeed dune.

What do you guys think?

Does this look Dune to you?

Overall, I love how the house is coming together and its been fun anticipating what's gonna come on next!

Now for Bubu's artistic shot, peering the house from the bushes...

House of Mumu|Bubu - what a magnificent sight:)
