This Monday's nook/coffee destination is the 'pool shack'... again (the green cup this morning 'D'). We seem to be living out here due to the heat! It's going to be hot today (33 degrees) so we are going to make the most of the morning pool shade before the sun gets nasty. The shade lasts until about 10am...... the last little bit stays on the pool seats either side of the shack... perfect really.... the shade comes back around 2pm on the main pool step in front of the back terrace... we let the boys frolic on that step until there is more shade around 3pm....it's amazing how creative their play is in such a small space. It's the last two days of the school holidays :( ... play lots boys.
Working around 'psycho birdie', we added a few more plants to the 'shack' on the weekend, some sort of fir tree/conifer thingys and some lavender. Hope they live. Historically, we are total brown thumbs but we have not had one 'green death' since planting began 12 months ago. Well that's not perfectly accurate. We've had some strugglers... up in the back garden under the neighbours big trees.... I think there is some sort of competition between the neighbours 100 year old tree roots and our newbies. Hubby has nurtured them, stuck putrid seaweed stuff on them, sung to them and lovingly watered them..... and they have new growth. Would help if it rained now... but just a bit.
We also tackled the wall decals in the boys rooms, this weekend. Not for the faint hearted. No mistakes... but lots of nagging... and "shut up will you"s. I am so not 'fine motor'. Fine motor stuff makes me cranky.... hence the reason I
Happy Monday everyone.
