Some things I forgot to include in my Ikea post (I was all afluster with the Ikea goodness):
One of the things I really wanted to get from Ikea was this grandfather clock wall decal. They have a nifty clock that can be purchased to go with it but I already have one which would go nicely. Thought it was seriously cool and for $15 bucks it’s on my gotta have list!
The other is either (or both?!) of these nifty chalkboard stickers. Seriously how awesome are they??? Functional and gorgeous… It’ll probably cost me just as much to ship it to me (hmmm could that be a good excuse to further browse the shop and make the shipping worth while?? heheh ;} )
Think I’m going to need to start a new tag… Must Have List 🙂
Oh and did I mention that I learned how to crochet granny squares over the Christmas break? Just to get myself into the spirit of my impending bumpkin life 🙂 Almost have enough to make a blankie!
And just a quick update on the new land situation. I spoke to my council guy again on Friday to clarify everything and it is possible BUT I’d have to be the land owner for the council to release the surrounding land owners details to be able to get consent for the right of way road (which I need to be able to register it). AND I’d also have to get permission from everyone who is “burdened” or “benefited” by the road which basically means any land owner whose block the road runs through or anyone who uses the road… and that could be a lot considering I can see at least 8 blocks that the road runs through but I’m not sure if that means all users of the road because there is a little sub road running off it which contains another 3 residences. So I might need all their permission too! So basically I need to firstly go out there and see if it is suitable and then work out what to do after that. Even if I did get all their permission, I’m still not guaranteed to get a building entitlement as it will depend on my development application (which I’m pretty sure will tick all their boxes). So it’s all a bit of a gamble. Not gonna stress myself out just yet… need to see it in person first… even if from photos and google earth it looks perfect :).
Next topic is bedrooms… have been doing a lot of surfing and planning in the last coupla weeks while work has been quiet. So I’ll show ya what I’ve got planned.
PS. and ooooohh this is post number 30! who would have guessed I could blabber on so much huh?!
