A problem and a solution

This section of the gutters lacks a downpipe and since the garden spruce up a solution was required to reduce the amount of splashing. I am hoping to divert the run off into the garden bed on the right instead of just running down the hill. After a visit to Bunnings to get downpipe and fittings...no more splashing.

Finishing the outside cupboard

I never did like louvres on doors. Especially fixed ones which are impossible to clean. So this project on the cupboard outside wasn't finished until now. I took the boards which were blocking the bottom half of the rumpus window, cut them to size and fitted them on top of the louvres. Finished.

With all the violence and gloom in the news of late, I am almost tempted to retreat into a world which is kinder, so I savour these moments of quiet where one can just live in the moment and not focus too much on the cares of what may be in the future.

Garden spring clean

Still much to do but it's a start

Garden spring clean update

One side done...decided to just move plants around, mulch and tidy up. The other side will suffer the same fate.  Hoping to get most of the hard digging work done before the weather gets too warm.

Year 11 Social

With Katrina Tang.

Garden spring clean

In dire need of tidying up.  Hopefully I will get the energy enough to rid the garden of clutter eg the old pond that doesn't have fish anymore and other plants that need to be moved elsewhere more suitable.

Sleeping in the bassinet

Up in the guestroom, there is an old bassinet which stores an extra pillow for guests. Tilly decided it was a prime spot for naps.
