This is my kitchen and lounge tonight...
and we've been scouted for a tv ad tonight by the neighbours! Photos taken exactly of this! They want "middle NZ un-renovated homes, un-renovated kitchens (that looked lived in and aren't too "flash" or renovated or "modern" looking). Rustic looking is good, possibly with wood details or with character. Ideally NO shiny splash backs in the kitchen". (their words).
The neighbours all work in tv, and they came over to investigate and said we are perfect. And that is so nice to see a real home, that looks lived in and has a really homely feel, that is not a show home, that has a ton of books everywhere, and shows a busy real family.
Oh my gosh - it IS real, we are stupid busy this week (and I am close to tears with everything), yes it is homely, has a lot of books, and it is a TIP and needs a damn good clean.
We find out tomorrow if chosen and filming for the Mercury Energy ad is on Tuesday. Fingers crossed - that is a lot of wool ;). And really really neat to meet the neighbours and wonder why they come and go all hours of the day and night and are always moving stuff in/ around/ out of vans!
