Aarrgghhh - An Evaluation

For those of you who don't know, my hubby and I are renovating a hills cottage in The Dandenong Ranges, in Victoria. Well, things are moving very slowly due to engineers, incorrect soil test reports and just other fun council stuff. Finally, it seems, after a year of having the renovation plans drawn up, things seem to be moving.
So today, we have our house evaluation. Fingers are crossed - hoping that they value it high enough to get the money we need without Lenders Mortgage Insurance - I'm actually a bit pessimistic that we'll get the value we want, but oh well. We'll see. But anyway, I've been madly cleaning inside while hubby tidied up outside. No matter what we do, it does look like a bit of a building site in our drive, but we are renovating - what can you do?

So that's at 10am.

At least the house is spotless, so today I can scrap - always got to look on the bright side :-)
