After our efforts this weekend, almost all of the jobs/tasks that had to be done around here are done!
I think the only big job left is to install the attic ladder in the garage ceiling, and we can't do that until we get the ladder.
That is a big annoyance, as Stew rang around various Bunnings branches yesterday and he found Hamilton DO have several, and other branches have them too. He is livid.
To add insult to injury, we found a Mitre 10 MEGA here in Cambridge yesterday ... and they have the exact attic ladder we want too. Grrrr. From now on we will be going to our local Mitre 10!
We got a couple of larger plants while at the Mitre 10 and a cool wind thingee for the garden too.
When we got home from there, we went out into the garden to plant the two bigger plants... and I remembered that the previous owners had told us there was rhubarb growing in the corner behind the two big olive trees.
So I went hunting.
No Rhubarb. But I found two little pumpkins!
Anyway... as I was getting out from behind the olive trees, I looked up...
ABOVE: Bugger me! There's a pumpkin in the freakin' tree! Like... the vine has grown up into the tree... so... my Olive Tree grows pumpkins!
ABOVE: My OLIVE PUMPKIN tree.
TODAY... IT'S HAPPY 4TH BIRTHDAY TO KEERA.
We shall be having a little birthday dinner for her tonight.
Now... I'm off to get some washing on, and tidy up after the weekend.
12.48 pm: This morning was spent shopping. And dropping a big double door cabinet down to the Hospice Shop.
Can't quite believe we found more to take down there!
We also went to Mitre 10 and bought fence stain and a big paint brush to paint the new fence with.
Then we came home.
ABOVE: Grandma and Granddad got Keera some new clothes, so she has some here when she visits.
ABOVE: Keera playing with her new doll trolley. It sings 'Let it Go' when you press the button. One could get very tired of that song, very fast! lol
ABOVE: "How old are you now Keera?" FOUR!
After sorting out the birthday stuff, I re-arranged some things in the kitchen AGAIN.
I'm hoping I've now got things in their permanent place.
But knowing me, I will move shit again...
ABOVE: For now... the family can tell where things are from the stick-it's! ha ha ha
9.21 pm: And we have had a lovely Birthday dinner for Keera. Lots of noise and food. Visitors have now left and Keera's in bed. We are watching some TV before bed.
Tomorrow Lacy and Keera go home and I can get back to fluffing around here getting everything ship shape again.
