What Paddy shot at

January 22, 2011


One of my "boys" at work came out with this "What Paddy shot at" phrase a few months ago.  After a solid 20 minutes of tears-and-all-type laughter, we HAD to google it to find out what it means.  Turns out, it's a really old fashioned saying for NOTHING.  And that is exactly what's been going on at the orange house this week - a big fat nothing.

The first date we were given for our slab pour was Jan 20 = gone.

The second date thrown around was Jan 24, which is Monday.  And considering we haven't been plumbed or boxed up, I'm guessing this is pretty unlikely.

Our CSC did tell us last week that we were due to have our portaloo delivered any day, and our scrape was booked for the 12th of Feb. 


I'm fairly sure this is our block...pre-christmas.  Hmmmmm.

Thanks Deb. It's such a long way to drive to end up being disappointed!!!

Sorry to report no movement at the ranch. Should be all over it come Monday. Gotta get that CLE to give more accurate dates. Met Ezzmay today; lovely couple with mum in tow.

Reinsey, great to see you back in blog land - we have missed you!!! At the rate we are all going we may still very well be neck and neck in the start to build stage. Don't stress, it will happen, we have all waited so long whats another month I ask (at least that's what I am telling myself right now). How are things, message me and give me an update please, you have been on my mind!!! Glad to hear you have met more nice neighbours Deb, they help make up for the rotten ones that are probably out there.

How disappointing to have promised dates come and go with no action.

Builders all over the world promise dates then don't deliver on them; why do they do it? It's SO annoying!
