Horrible!…

Hubster painted the media today.
Went to Bunnings, picked a colour in 2.5 seconds flat. Didn’t want to think about it for weeks and change my mind a trillion times.

Yep! NBN charge $300 for the connection, then whatever provider you use can charge a connection fee if they choose too.
Telstra charged us a $99 connection fee.

It’s fantastic. It’s 2 years on the 8th of May, since we bought our land. It was a long time coming.

Hubster and I spent 2 hours this afternoon cutting the grass/ weeds.
We are so wrapped with how the front of the house looks.
