A Night on the Tiles.....

Just a quick post to say that I've been doing some tiling. Been meaning to tile the small hallway between the two back bedrooms and the bathroom. Its one of those holiday jobs which takes a few days to do.
The sub straight was laid first, then I had to cut the tiles to shape. Yesterday the tiles were glued down and after New Years we will finish with grouting - I can return to work knowing one more house job is finished.

No small feat to do this tiling.
New Year is a time when we like to spend alone together and if we don't feel like staying up to midnight - we don't have to.
So!!!! We are leaving for Ballarat for the weekend (leaving our son in charge of the house and the cats).
Booked in to a hotel and a restaurant for dinner and take in the history of one of Victoria's larger regional history. Ballarat is home of the Eureka Stockade - read more on this here:

A painting depicting the pledging of the oath and the raising of the Eureka flag.
I guess the Eureka Rebellion could be likened a little to the Boston Tea Party or the French Revolution although Australia is fortunate to not have had many conflicts on home soil.

It should be a good trip to Ballarat, a city built on the riches of the gold rush as was Bendigo. We'll post on it for next Monday.

Sunday will be the second photo in the series of 365 daily photos for "TRAVELLING THROUGH FRANCE - a daily photographic memoir".


  1. I'm impressed! I would not dare such a feat.

    I assume you are not concerned by the flooding we've heard a little about in the news? I hope not, at any rate.

  2. Walt - I'm a bit the same sometimes about starting some things but I've always been someone who might bite off more than they can chew. You always learn something about yourself - not always good!!!
    BTW I must turn on the news - where do we have flooding?

  3. Have a good time on your special weekend.
    Wishing you health, happiness and tons of inspiration for new posts in 2012.
    Best wishes to your fans and fellow bloggers too!
