Hillbrow Day 4:
Lots of drilling, banging, activity in each room! 5 different teams of people all busy with fixing some aspect of our flat! Amazing that they do this each time someone moves out! Let the games begin!
Day 3 in Hillbrow Report: Arrived super early this morning to greet any visitors! By 9am the painters, plumber, maintenance man, dry-walling guys, and welder had checked in to assess the work to do. And since then Telkom has also been, followed by the glass fitter! Amazing how accommodating the management of Connaught Properties has been! And I forgot to mention the electrician who stopped by yesterday...
Daniel and Vusisi
Blauwberg Netball team???
Well things are progressing slowly. Here are some pics...

Kitchen before... a bit of work needed indeed!
Well people, today marks the beginning of a life-changing move for the Branken family! We are here at our new flat in Hillbrow, making decisions about furniture, colours, layout etc. All very exciting! Can't wait to live in this wonderful place!
One thing I loved about today's visit to our Hillbrow flat was seeing our kids accepted so quickly by the other kids in the playground downstairs. People think we are giving up so much but I am starting to see how much we are gaining...but now to sleep: tomorrow's visit begins early again!
