Our water rats. They’re all getting swimming lessons and loving it.
After much debate, thoughts and ideas, we’ve decided to put in a pool in our own garden. Nothing big or fancy, just something to play around in, and cool off in Summer. With Spring just around the corner, we’ve decided to go for it.
We’re planning an above-ground pool, so we can add it to the back of our existing deck.
But before we can start with groundworks we had to get rid of the stump of a big, old tree we had lopped years ago.
“A stump is the revenge of the tree for cutting it.”
Three weekends of pyromaniacs, covered in soot, is resulting in a big gaping hole. Step 1 is done, next weekend we have a date with a bobcat...
Just in time for the markets on Sunday...
I’m dedicating a part of my stalls to promote local growers and farmers. My curry paste, garlic, curry packs, beetroot/blueberry brownies, fresh herbs. I’m proud to live in an area where we can grow so many things all year round, where so many lovely people do just that.
Having a little business to run, something just for me, makes me feel energised, happier. It adds a work to my already busy weeks, but it’s so worth it!
David has 5 new teeth coming through at the moment (3 molars), while Tim just lost one and is now dreaming of tooth faries. Alex is practicing more and more words, we’re naming everything, singing songs and keep making games out of it to help him along. Sophie is having a personality change, our quiet and shy little girl is coming out of her shell and is turning into a little dragon, spitting fire or playing tricks on you. With learning to read and write her confidence has been boosted, her friendship with a girl living next door has her getting her fill of girly things. After 3 rowdy brothers she has finally someone to play princesses with!
