September 24 009

Spring has arrived!

On annual leave this week and had planned quite a few chores around the house and garden. Ordered three cubic meters of crushed rock for the driveway and side of the house, one meter of lilydale toppings to make a path up from the drive to to the back "garden" and two meters of 10ml mulch to prepare the gardens for the upcoming hot summer..... and it's raining! I did get some of stone moved and started on the path but stick inside now.... its bucketing down!

I've been out spending, keeping the economy turning.... (got my tax return!) in case you hadn't already figured that out with the garden materials.... but also bought a new TV unit.... which came flat pack!

Priscilla helped...

Loads of swearing at this point.....

Finished product :-)

Had a very busy start to the holidays with my friends at Southern competing in a novice comp out in Campbellfield. I'll upload the photo's and details of who did what etc next week went I've sorted thru them properly.

Sunday Tinkerbell and Paul came over for a BBQ and we watched the CAPO Nationals which Paul had video'd. What better way to spend the afternoon, eating, having a few glasses of wine and watching powerlifting with good friends :-)

Actually I needed a little cheering up and having them over was just what I needed.... Some very, very sad news late on Saturday night, my brother in law, who had been quite ill for some time passed away - no matter how much you know this may happen it still comes as a shock and I sat up until the wee early hours of Sunday morning remembering the good times. RIP Harry.

Well its stopped raining and the sun is peaking thru, so I should get back out working in the garden while it lasts.
