It’s the little things that can make us proud. Repairing our first fence!
Yes, we had done little bits and pieces before, but this one was a proper repair job needing a fence strainer tool. Reading instructions and checking youtube, because, well... it’s rather tricky. We nailed it, a high-five moment for us, for those who didn’t grow up with land.
There is something highly satisfying about painting walls. It looks so much better, instantly.
All pen marks and scuffs gone and hidden under a fresh looking layer of white.
Three kids bedrooms had a makeover and since we’ve been using the same paint throughout the house, going through the hallways and other high traffic areas made for a very quick tidy up!
Next job will be to replace the carpet in all bedrooms. We’re still researching (as well as gathering courage, since we’ll need to simultaneously empty 4 bedrooms ahead of laying!).
The desk is an early birthday present, he’ll be turning 9 at the end of this month!
Mr Dozer pulled a bucket loader out of his back pocket, to spread some topsoil over the top of the dam to speed up grass taking root. Which will decrease erosion.
The last of the bitou bush (can you see it at the left?) has been eradicated, another big job of the list!
A couple of tree were harmed in the dam building process, we’ve cut some of the branches for firewood (home gym), the rest can stay for soil enrichment.
The new dam, looking pretty even while still empty, will be a delight on my morning walks. Even though we’ll have to eventually alter the walking/maintenance track.
Letting the kids know “I’m checking the weeds between Wattle Lane and Deep Pond”, makes sense to them and know where to find me if they need me.
