Yesterday we got our teeth into gardening, among other things. Gillo grappled with the whipper-snipper and cleared the garden – it looks great. I built a kayak rack, and treated it. We got a whistlestop tour of Haig and Lauren’s new house next door. I oiled the outdoor furniture, and weedkilled the patio and paths. Then, we ended the day with a yummy dinner of prawn and mint pea risotto – yum!!! unfortunately, in the high winds, the crappy roof corrugates on the car port parted company, so our plan to convert it to a deck may have to happen sooner rather than later! Today, the sparkies are looking at rewiring the back of the house, including what will be our "study" and the outside room-thingy, which will be a bedroom/studio type thing, once we paint it and floor it and deck it. Lots of fun…lots to do before abandoning it all for the Europe trip!!!
