Helping Dad paint.

Hello Mr Darcy.
"Hello Dad. Do you want help painting ?"

Uh, no. Or I'll be cutting paint out of your hair again.

Very comfy in Granddad's chair.

We are staying at my parents house for the night - just to get away from our renovations.

Comfy there, Mr Darcy ?
"Oh yes thanks Dad. Quite comfy thank you."

You know that that is Granddad's chair, don't you ?!
"Not any more."

Supervising Dad paint

Hello you two, come to help again ?
"Yes Dad, we couldn't imagine you doing anything without us."

"You missed a spot, there on the left."

Yes thank you Mr Darcy. Very kind.
"Only too pleased to help, Dad."

Ready for the floor to go down

Move along you two, you're in the way. We have to move everything.

"Wow Dad, it's all empty down here."
Yes Daisy, the floor boards go down tomorrow.

"Dad, with all this excitement, don't forget to feed us."
Poor Mr Darcy, I shall try to find some tucker for you.

Ready to tear up the old floor.

Move yourself Mr Darcy, we're about to tear all that old floor up.
"But I'm helping you, Dad."

Well you can help me by moving out of the way !

A smart jacket for Mr Darcy.

We took a day off from our renovations and went up the country to Heathcote.

We found a lovely new jacket for Mr Darcy. It's been very cold here in Melbourne.

You look very handsome, Mr D.
"Why thank you Dad. It's the latest thing, don't you know."

You look lovely in your jumper too, Daisy-Mae.
"And it's very snug too, Dad."

Lovely kiddies, all snug and warm now.

Washing off the plaster dust, and concrete dust, and ....

We're renovating, and at the moment we are plastering and sanding.

Daisy and Darcy are covered in plaster dust and sawdust and concrete dust and other things too terrible to mention. So, in the tub with you two !
The hydro-bath at the Fitzroy Veterinary Clinic is such a wonderful thing.

"Dad, for once I agree with you. It's all a bit much."
Too right Mr Darcy.

Our doors have arrived.

Hello kiddies, what do you think of our new doors ?
"Very nice Dad, but where is the dog door ?"

Dog door ? Um, I think I forgot to plan for that !
"Well Dad, you had better think of something."

Hmm, maybe you can go out through that low window in the powder room.
"Dad, Darcy is too fat. He'll never squeeze out through that window."

OK, then. Mr Darcy is on a diet. Haha.
"Dad, not fair."

Moving rooms again. Back upstairs.

We are deep into our renovations.
We've been living in one room downstairs. Now it's time to go back up so that we can pull up the old floor boards.

OK kiddies. You're about the last thing. Upstairs with you and your beds.
"Yes Dad."
"OK Dad. I hope we'll have a bit more room. It was a bit of a squish down here.
