My weekend in the garage!

For the past 9 months, I have been staring at the piles of stuff in the garage as I drive in and out 100 times a day (almost). As you can see in one of the BEFORE photos, there is a leaning tower. It was only a matter of time before it collapsed on a child or on the car. This weekend was the time to do it as the schedule was fairly clear once I got home from my daughter's netball match.

I started by clearing everything out & cleaning the ground as much as possible though I think it needs a good guerney. I drove off to Bunnings and purchased the QiqFix range of garage shelving. It proved a little difficult to get it off the shelf and into the car by myself but some helpless looks saw burly men come running! About 3 hours later the shelves were all together. There weren't too many arguments! Everything was then neatly arranged back inside the garage.

Back to Bunnings today for someplastic containers that actually would fit on the shelves and I think another trip is warranted tomorrow for some more!!

Window Cleaning recommendation

I HATE dirty windows. It's just MY thing. I love looking through clear glass with no dirt, no bird poo, no smears or fingerprints. I had noticed our neighbours using a company fairly regularly and I would watch as a team of 4 or 5 descended upon their home, hurried around cleaning windows and departed. I called them back for a quote on our place and I was astounded.
Now we have a pretty large home. For our house, without flyscreens, cleaning inside and outside, vacuuming the tracks, cleaning the pool fence and the glass stair balustrading inside it cost $210. Bargain! No other quote came close.
The test was going to be to see if I was happy with the quality of the clean. Yes, I am! To top it off it was all completed in about an hour.
Call John Lopez on 0412 916010 for a quote and tell him Kerith sent you.
