Stos and I have both taken a week off from the Day Jobs. Breaks have been a bit thin on the ground over the last 18 months, so we thought it was a good idea just to take some time to sit back and enjoy the house. That was until Bob decided that this week would be a good time to do the landscaping. So now we have jobs to do in readiness for the bobcat coming in later in the week. This afternoon was spent pulling out weeds in the front yard and picking up building rubble, although, to be honest, I think we will be picking bits of roof tile out of the ground until we are carried out of the place. The yard is bare but it looks a lot better than the jungle of weeds it was last week. The back is another story but the bobcat will sort that out. K & P were out the front with us but having had a taste of freedom a few weeks ago, K headed for the only gap in the fence and started trotting down the road to seek out treats at M's place. She really is a female (and canine) version of Houdini. But you wouldn't guess her evil nature from the photo here.
I am an office worker trying to get in touch with my creative side. I like to make things and cook but spend more time thinking about these things rather than doing them. I play lots of sport and will always elect to walk the dogs rather than do things around the house. I buy far too many books yet never have anything to read. In 2010 we knocked down our house and rebuilt it but the journey of gardening and organising our space continues.
