Weekend Warriors

That tragic old fence will be covered by lovely Lilly Pillys - soon!

Remember the pots? All 900 kg of them? Well we have 10 cubic metres of soil/mix arriving this morning and the plants arrive on Monday. It's going to be a long hot day. Lots of steps and fights over the wheelbarrow.
Got to remind myself that we have come a long way from this:

Front yard where raised courtyard is now

And this:

Oh look there's 'Lloydy' in the corner. Hey Lloydy, we LOVE our pool, you champion. Can you pop in and teach hubby a thing or two about 'backwashing' though? He makes a terrible mess of the pool when he does it.... we're talking 'mud' gushing out of pipes.

Whatever you are up to this weekend, have a lovely one my friends.... even if it is shovelling dirt. Yes, shovelling dirt can be lovely.... just got to keep one's eye on the end result. Hubby and I have booked a babysitter tonight so we can have a nice meal out..... as a reward for our scars! A-M xx


  1. Oh so pleased to see you will treat yourselves will make this hard work so much easier...I hope :)

  2. You are a brave sort ..I have built 2 houses from ground up.

    A big undertaking,

  3. Hope you have a nice dinner out together! You will deserve it after all that dirt and pot hauling :)

  4. Hope you enjoy your dinner for two after your hard day's work.

  5. This has not been a good weekend for shovelling's so darn hot! Good luck with it all and thanks for your lovely comment on my Friday's post.


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave me a comment. I love hearing from you. A-M xx
