Spring cleaning

Today hubby and I did a big clean around the house 
I did windows he pressure cleaned the house 
And we both worked on the deck 
Still haven’t finished 
But we did make a huge dent in the job 
Once we finish cleaning we will need to oil the deck 
But for now I’m resting 
I’m taking meds 
And I’m going to be in bed early 
Oh my but I hurt! 
See ya xx

Bah humbug

Usually I’m all bah humbug. 
In the past it was just money we didn’t have 
And then the kids were older 
And then I just didn’t have the energy with a chronic illness 
But I have friends who love Christmas and dianne, who I meet at swimming, really really loves Christmas 
And she offered to help me do it all 
So I finally said. Ok lol 
This is usually all I do  plus a wreath on the front door 

But now I have this as well 
Looks great doesn’t it. 
They’re not on. But there is 1200 lights on it as well!
But that’s not all 
There are two like this! 

I know. 
They do look great. Especially at night with the lights on. 
2400 of them! 
So I know have three Christmas trees 
And dianne has plans for even more 
As she is happy to come and do it all 
I’m all for it. 
I really do like the decorations. Just don’t have the spare energy 
Can’t wait until Melody comes over and sees it. 
That’s how they finally convinced me 
Melody will love it so you have to do it lol

A different view

Didn’t get a before shot. I forgot. But this is half way. It was really really overgrown 

And here it is. With an extreme make over. 
It was getting harder and harder to get large vehicles around there without the branches scratching them 
So now we have a large open space 
I have one protea to plant in there and I’m thinking of moving an olive tree that is in amongst the other trees that hasn’t 
Done much do to not enough sun 
But for now I’m enjoying just seeing the world 
There is a small tree that was struggling. But now it has lots of room to spread and grow. 
So what do you think?  The willow will grow again and it’s usually very quick at bouncing back
But this time we will be vigilant and not let it get outta control

So much abundance and this is just my backyard 
Feeling blessed

The maiden voyage

Here we are all set up and ready to relax 
Took about five minutes 
So easy 

We organised our wood pile 
It was really cold that first night 
And here is everyone, except me, sitting around the campfire 
It was a relaxing couple of days 
As there was no electricity. We all had hot water bottles to keel us warm 
And lots of blankets. 
But the days were sunny and nice
It was great to just get away
Home now. Have unpacked and checked all our babies 
They have survived without us 
Thanks Mathew for looking after then while we were away 
But now. I’m having a little rest before thinking about dinner 
See ya xxxxx
