On a different note..

The whole "our cliff is about to fall down" thing is getting so last week. Shamus came back, took a photo and left again. No further movement.

Anyway, back to the drains - you may recall that a while back (over six months now! Jee-whizz!) we started clearing a path to dig up the old drains and replace them. Well, Matt started digging out there and we didn't find what we were expecting. Darren (the drain guy) told us that we needed to relay the bulk of the pipes as they were clay, but when Matt dug down, we found a slab of concrete and what appears to be PVC piping underneath. Hmm. Odd.

He dug in multiple places along the drain line and for the most part it was the same story aside from about five metres close to the house which looks like the original clay pipes. So on Monday I'm gonna give Dazza a call and try to work out what's going on, but we are quietly hoping that we may not have such a massive job ahead after all.

And that means we just might be able to get stuck in to sorting out the bathroom a little sooner. But let's not get ahead of ourselves now...
