Today has been a pretty busy day. The press interest is really picking up now.
First thing this morning Channel 7 (Australia) called, and want me on Weekend Sunrise early morning TV tomorrow morning. Because the show is filmed in Sydney, which is two hours ahead of us here in Perth, I have to get up before 5am to get to the studio in time for the slot I am booked in for. Oh dear! It’s just like being back in the mines!
After Channel 7’s call, a representative of a Japanese TV station turned up to film some stuff, as I tried to get the house organised and tidied for the Home Open at 1pm. Fortunately I had done most of what needed to be done the day before, and by lunchtime the house was looking it’s best ever! Maybe I shouldn’t sell it – it looks great! Just kidding!
The Home Open went well, with quite a few people coming through to take a look. Some knew all about the auction, some had no idea that everything was included, and were quite surprised by the idea. During the Home Open a different Channel 7 team from the news department came and filmed a piece for this evening’s news
I did another interview by phone this afternoon, with The Guardian newspaper in the UK and I am currently waiting for a radio station in Ireland to call.
And the auction hasn’t even started yet!!
Here are a few good links to some of the publicity recently put online:-
