We dragged the three girls all over the countryside looking at bricks!! They hated it and moaned everytime. Mum/Dad: "Do you like this brick?"..daughters reply: "if I say yes can we go?"
After various visits to various places we narrowed our selections down to a few choices from Austral and PGH. Austral was probably up there in the choice stakes due to their playground at the display centre...so we always got to do a few laps there before the kids complained.Here are some shots of our girls having a ball at the brick places...NOT!
The Flushcombe Road entrance (near the library) of Westpoint Shopping Centre at Blacktown has Blue Rio bricks but it has been graffitti coated and has lost it's flair". They remind me of my grandmothers house that was in Northmead. They knocked her house down and built the Power House on Briens Rd (now Dick Smiths). It was very ironic as her maiden name was Power. Anyhow, enough of the history lesson....So Earth it is!!
Above are a couple of our choices.... EARTH just happens to be on the display house of the OUR HOUSE too so everytime we go there now we run our hands over the brick and pat each other on the back because we like them so much. They are a brown brick with an almost flat colour. There are no flecks but they do vary in colour. They are solid and look like they are made from brown clay straight out of the ground.From the EARTH!
