Today is the day - yay!!!!!

Well today is the day - the concrete will finally be finished.

What was supposed to be done in only 2 days has turned into 2 weeks - the much needed rain decided to come, of course, as soon as we dug up the old concrete. What was underneath was so, so wet due to the existing concrete being cracked the weather got in under that and it was so gluggy it needed time to dry out. Of course, we had extra rain didn't we - LOL!!!!
Oh well.

It's been done in steps - the first step was the pergola area - the kids have been using that to play on already - they love it. They have been so used to NOT playing on the existing concrete under the carport as it has been so chopped up.

Today the carport is being poured - just now actually. I have been sitting in my car for the last 10 minutes after dropping the kids off to school. When I got back I couldn't even get in the drive way. I eyed off the side fence to see if I could jump over that way - thinking they could be there for ages, and then thought the better of it................we could have ended up needing an ambulance........LOL. I could just picture me either half over the fence - stuck, or on the other side of the fence with injuries - this is while blokes were laying concrete - NO the thought was all too much........LOL.

So in a few days we will be able to drive back under cover and then make a start, hopefully, on the pergola. Can't wait. We are ALL so excited.
