Engineering – check!

Its a bit of a big day today – not only is it Nick’s 40th birthday but we just heard that the engineer has finished with our house plans. So now all we have to do is get the architects to do the final drawing and we can submit for our building consent. We’re also almost finished getting quotes for putting up a barn/workshop which will allow us to move Nick’s workshop over, sell our Aranui house and go flatting on the ‘right’ side of town to be closer to the beasties.

As for the birthday boy – he’s keeping it fairly quiet. We’re going out for dinner tonight to our favourite restaurant Indochine, just the two of us like we did for my birthday at Christmas. I got him a book that he’s been drooling over for months – great big close-up pictures of armour from the Churburg Armoury. I’ll add to LibraryThing just as soon as I can find a record of it or can be bothered entering it manually.
