See the title of this post – “Have you heard of liquid limestone?”. I have no doubt that many of you out there will never heard of liquid limestone. For those who know what it is, then you’re only a few handful of people. By the way, feel free to correct me by commenting on this page. If you know about it already, then feel free to stop reading further because I will briefly explain how I come to know liquid limestone.
I came across liquid limestone when I wanted to vamp up my outdoor area. I have just installed a patio and had brand spanking new pool put in. The next step was to put paving around the pool. At first instance I was thinking of just plain cement paving. Then a friend of mine said “why don’t you use liquid limestone?”. My immediate response was, liquid what? Yep, I had no idea what it was. My friend kind of laughed and pulled out her phone to show some images of liquid limestone used on her uncle’s property. To cut the long story short, liquid limestone is a special cement mix with limestone. It enhances the properties of cement alone. One of the most popular feature is that it’s cool to walk on in summer. How “cool” is that! No pun intended!
Anyways, here’s an example on how it looks like:
Example of Liquid Limestone
How cool does it look? Pretty good huh? That’s what I thought. You can look at more examples of liquid limestone at www.stylishoutdoorsolutions.com.au
There’s also a forum where people are talking and discussing about it here.
Randomness is what I said right? Well this post is about my first ever car that I owned. Here’s the thing, I thought getting a car is straight forward (apart from saving enough money to buy one of course which can be very challenging). But after buying it, it presented with so many problems.. problems that will eventually cost me mega $$$$ well relative to my income at that time of course.
How long did it take for me to save for my first car? Let just say quite a while. If you’re blessed with having enough in the bank – then all I can say is freakin’ lucky you! But I do think the majority of people will have very little saved up for buying their first car. A loan will be out of the question as many won’t have a stable job to even qualify for one.
Long story short… got the car is what is the first thing I do? Well get it detailed of course! Why? Well I had some left over money as I bargained the owner to lower the price. Looking at some before and after pictures form some website like this random one that I saw: www.perthcardetailingwa.com.au .. made me want to get one to transform my “pride and joy” that worth a couple of grand to something that looks like a million dollars! Well as close to it as possible. You know exactly what I mean. Was I happy with the decision? Let’s just say so-so.. why? Not because the finis substandard, but I could of saved a lot of money by getting off my backside and do it my self. Sigh*
Well the car detailing bit was not the real problem I faced. What what the real problems? Well, I didn’t really want too much as I am still trying to recover from it. Let’s start off with a broken gear box.. damage is thousands of dollars. Can I ask my mates for the costs.. of course not, they will just say to me.. “your car your problem!”. But they are happy to go for a ride.
Moral of this post.. maturity is sometime learned the hard way!
Here’s the thing… Life, in general is pretty much like a box of leftover chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get next. But such is life. The Crayon Wrangler might sound kiddy but it’s far from it. In fact, it is everything about my life. So here goes.. my first ever post to kick things off for this blog of mine.
Just like my life… I might post one thing one day and two things the next. Randomness is what keeps me in order. If you know what I mean!
