Because you haven't heard from me in a while, I thought I would fill you in on the excitement that surrounds the Hamwich Homestead:
5:45 am - I wake up
5:50 am - I stagger out to the front veranda with a cuppa
5:55 am - next door neighbour's paper gets delivered
6:00 am - lady across the street leaves for work. I get a "howyagoin?" wave from her. I wave back.
6:10 am - "duke" leaves for work. (honestly, would you ring up someone named "duke" to fulfil your decorating & painting needs? That's what the advert on his truck reads: "Duke's Painting & Decorating - to fulfil all your decorating needs".)
6:11 am - "rendering guy" leaves for work, closely followed by "conduit guy".
The fun never stops.
