The builders are here!

Hiya folks,

Next week Term 3 commences and we’re back in the studio from Tuesday. In the meantime, though, how’s about this? The builders are here!

We’re finally doing the last piece of the renovation puzzle – fixing the West Wing. Once finished, the West Wing will house a new family bathroom, upstairs laundry, and new small bedroom. In the meantime, though, there’s lots of bangings and crashings, and no toilet access for a couple of months (sorry!). Luckily the lads leave before 2.30pm (starting at 6.30am OMG can you believe it?!), so there should be no other inconvenience to singing lessons.

On the other hand, we’re also planning to renovate the front yard, entrance and driveway, so there could be some inconvenience while we get that done!

In other news, the dogs don’t get to be with the hoomans anymore. They have been corralled out the back by 2 child-proof gates, because there has been too much building work going on in the rest of the house, and I was worried about them getting out the front door and running onto the road. I like that the doggies can’t get through, so I’m keeping the gates there for the time being, or until I can’t stand it any more.

We’re also doing some light landscaping in the rear yard, but that won’t affect lessons at all.

I’ve also started making inquiries about performance opportunities for our Brisbane Broadway Babies series. Theatre hire is SUPER expensive, but I’ve some ideas up my sleeve. I want these showcases to be as much about atmosphere as they will be about opportunity. In other words, making the experience as professional and funky as possible. Stay tuned for more.
