We had been planning on getting another dog, however had been waiting for the right time.
This is Coco who is our new puppy and new addition to the family.
This weekend was very productive. I was able to buy material (twice) from Bunnings and started on our retaining wall. Picked up shed on Saturday and was able to start building it today. However I didn’t have time to put all the sides up and bolt it together. As I needed someone else to help me and didn’t have any one around to help.
Got lots more to do, but ran out of time. Will get back to all the work come the next weekend.
Will get a decent photo of the retaining wall I have been building, and update this post.
I certainly do believe in karma. I do hope that the person who smashed into my car while it was parked in the car park today gets whats coming to them.
My wife pointed out to me that she noticed my car seemed to have some damage at the rear. Looks like some idiot has ran into the back of my car causing scratch and the fiberglass panel has some crease damage where I believe its compressed from impact and popped back out. However while doing this its not gone back to the correct shape, thus has damage that is still visible. Looks like the panel has some bends in it still when it should be flat.
I am really not impressed, but there was no note and unfortunately the area has no CCTV.
All I can hope for is that the person who did gets some bad karma from it. As they seriously deserve it. Who does that and doesn’t own up. Completely annoyed.
The only saving grace here is that I actually switched car spots with my wife today, so I parked her car where my car was and moved my car towards the far end of the carpark. So technically it could of been her newer car that got hit, if I didn’t do that.
I pointed out to my wife that today I nearly got wiped out in the carpark by a young P plate driver who failed to slow down and/or give way.
Seriously not my day today…
The shed I ordered last month is presently on its way.
Got SMS and email notification today that it is in transit. So I expect to get a phone call from transport depot when it arrives in Prestons, NSW. Will arrange to go collect.
Guess I should be able to get it put together the first available weekend I have (after picking it up).
Woke up and found today to be sunny. Finally the rain has stopped. Sydney just went through the most amount of rain I have ever seen.
I am hoping come the weekend I will be able to get out into the yard to do more work.
Let’s hope it’s not another wash out.
Today the concrete was done. It now needs time to cure. Now I will have my shed slab, which means soon as I shed is available for pickup I should be able to schedule a weekend to build and install it.
Below is a few photos showing how the area transformed from yesterday when form work was completed.
Concrete company was on site getting things ready so that our concrete can go ahead tomorrow.
We also had them use the Bobcat to do some work out the front and in the backyard, so that we could also be ready down the track in the next 2-3 weeks to install our lawn. Still in planning stages.
Few photos showing the transformation.
It was a bonus to see that I got a free upgrade to the new release since I had purchased the product in the time frame required to qualify.
I jumped all in and upgraded my setup. I was a bit concerned on the process but after a bit of reading and cross checking I went for it.
Essentially the upgrade process is to export a backup of your configuration. Now remove DVBLink TVSource add on, upgrade the license in your license portal. Grab the new version of the product and run the upgrade batch file. Once done install the new DVBLink TVSource and license it. Now import configuration saved earlier.
Seemed to all work without a hitch.
I noticed DVBLink Viewer application, but not sure if that was new to this release. Just hadn’t used it until post upgrade. Can see numerous UI tweaks in the various parts of the product too.
