An incredibly exciting moment happened yesterday.
Not only did Melbourne give us our first Spring like Saturday (the sunshine, minuscule rise in temps, fragrance of wattle and cherry blossom in the air)…
…but our wonderful cabinet maker also rocked up, mate in tow, to deliver cabinetry that he will start to install on Monday.
I have to explain why this was such a heart stopping moment for us – you see, Tony is a lovely man of the old school variety who has worked with our builder for over 20 years. He doesn’t use email. He doesn’t use the internet. Nor indeed even any drawing software! His sketches are all 100% pencil and ruler drawn by hand and then carefully faxed or photocopied. He is however one of the nicest, low key, non fuss people you could possibly meet. I showed him photos of what I wanted…and used a lot of terrible drawings (I am no artist) and lots of earnest talking to try to convey my ideas. So we really had no idea if what we had in our minds had actually been completely understood and translated into Tony’s mind! From everything like finishes, to door handles, to heights.
So far so good though!
I can’t wait to see it all in place! Hopefully it’s what we wanted.
