Popping back in  
A week has gone by since my last post - it seems nothing ever happens during the week, everything happens on the weekend.

Friday night was brilliant, going out with my son for a belated Mothers Day. I had no idea where we were going; all I knew was that he was picking me up and I was to "wear something nice". My assumption that we were going for dinner was disproved when he and Jess turned up with dinner in hand; once we'd eaten I was hustled into the car and we headed into the city - for this! Avenue Q at the Brisbane Arts Theatre. What a great show! Laughed myself silly.

Yesterday I bought three doors. Well, ordered them at least. My house is kinda weird and none of the doors are standard sizes so they have to be specially made - a new front door, back door and downstairs door. They'll be ready in about a fortnight. Purchase price includes hanging and locks etc, with the deadlocks keyed alike which will be handy.

Today was the V8s from Townsville, and a bit of shopping prior to the telecast starting. Just picked up a few things for the house including paint for my existing front screen door and new insect mesh for it. That's a job for next weekend now.

I'm ashamed to admit that until last Friday I didn't even know the place existed. It's a very intimate space with limited seating but that adds to the atmosphere for me.
There are a couple of other community theatre groups around Brisbane; I know there's one on the northside (Redland Bay or Deception Bay) because a friend's daughter belongs. (Assuming you'll be on the northside when you get here?)

Ooooh, surprise theatre tickets. Now there's a lovely present. :D

We have to get new deadbolts for our doors but actually buying new doors? That's ambitious.

It WAS lovely, and very unexpected.
New doors may not be necessary but the current ones are so ugly - just a plain slab of painted timber. Back door in particular needs to be replaced with something that will let some light in, as my new deck (if it ever eventuates) will cut the light to the kitchen window.

Now that sounds like a fabulous weekend. Aren't sons wonderful!

You really are into this house reno business. Painting, new doors - Bunnings must love you. *bg*

Heh. I need a Bunnings charge card I think! Every time I walk in there to get just one thing I come out with a basketful. Doors are coming from Doors Plus, though, as they will deliver and hang them as well.
