I took the day before cup day off and had some turf delivered. We went with Kikuyu which is what we had at our last place, it's agressive growing so is good with kids and dog and is also at it's best in summer.
We had plenty of helpers and we were all knackered at the end of the day.

I got the tank pump running and we've been watering it in since.

Unfortunately we are now into 'the hotest period for November on record in Melbourne' with the entire week being above 30 deg and posible relief next Monday before being back to above 30!!! So we're now rationing the tank water.

We've moved into the house although there is still alot of work to do.
To start with we haven't got our phone or internet connection yet hence the lack of comunication.
Last week we got the last of the electrical stuff finished so all the lights work and the central vac (the vacpan is Ritas favourite toy at the moment.)
The garage is still full of stuff so we'll need to put up some shelves out there to organise things.
My Mum and Dad have been staying with us and have been a great help.
I've attached a few photos of the family / kitchen / dining area.
