A lovely young apprentice plumber Oliver offered to help out, but I don't think he knew what he was in for! The other plumber Grant who has been helping, let him know what needed to be done, and he came up to our house today with two of his mates - Josh and Brady, and they spent over five hours digging a trench down the side of the house.
I felt so sorry for them as I knew they all work all week and were giving up their Saturday, for someone they didn't even know, but was so grateful that they were able to come and do it, as it means that the landscaping can hopefully go ahead as planned.
It's such a relief to have the trenches ready to go, and hopefully the pipes will go down during the week. I can't wait until it's all done. It makes me so happy to know that the house will finally be finished, but I just wish Aaron was here to be able to enjoy it with us.
