Old Estate house found today in the rain







Kristen was driving past this house this morning on the way to Carindale shopping centre to buy some much needed new shirts and shorts when he noticed it had sold and some folks in the yard were moving some older items into their cars.
Well he did not come home with any new clothes but he did come home with lots of old items some of the furniture we will be listing on ebay tonight.
Problem though, he come home with his clothes extremely dirty and ringing wet and he had only a few clean items to change into.
This is no reflection on the washing and ironing in my house.
It is a reflection that everytime Kristen goes off to buy much needed new clothes he finds some excuse, when he comes home, to explain how he never made it to the shops.
Normally I just roll my eyes but going on the quality of the huge cedar desk directly above I will take him at his word today.
You can see all these items for auction right now on ebay by clicking here

  11. I might have to employ him as my location scout! Sounds like he has a good eye (whilst driving) - an important skill.
