|our backyard blitz has started in earnest|
We spent the Australia Day long weekend doing two things - firstly, starting work on our backyard, which, since the arrival of Dougal the digger three years ago, has gone from lush green, to a repulsive lunar landscape. All I can say is it's lucky he's so cute..... We tackled a quick paint job, giving the pool wall a coat of Dulux's Saphire Stone, and one very faded sun lounge a spray of Pink Flamingo. Then we started the real work, digging and levelling the soil in order to create some new stone paths and garden beds. I'd made a trip to Fultons on Friday to buy a heap of stones for the new path - but not quite enough so I'll be back there this week - probably twice!
Secondly we've been doing some intense nursing of Annebelle - she arrived back from her school trip as sick as a dog and has literally sweated, coughed and slept for six days. It's back to school this week so hopefully she's on the mend!
So, I guess it's back to it! Roll on 2013!
