AB and I have almost finished 'up the side'. Just need to replant all the hydrangeas on the shady side .. but the sunny 'kitchen garden' side is now complete: rosemary hedging, kaffir and tahitian limes, mandarin and meyer lemon.
I must say the man of the house is pretty chuffed with himself. He never used to be 'Suburban Bunnings Dad', but it's really grown on him, loves it. If I mention I have Mother's Group, he'll be out there making sure the lawn is mowed for the kidlets.
He's a good man.
But really, what i've been doing is processing photos for other people - I know a few of you have been wanting to see what i've been up to, but i'm still rather shy, mind .. and even though I have permissions from people to use photos i've taken for them, a personal blog just doesn't seem to be the place. I suppose i'll get over it as my confidence grows, but I just want to say 'thankyou' to some people I know who read here, who are generous and helpful and kind.
Tree went up tonight. Undecorated as yet.
My children don't sleep, and the youngest one has decided that life is unbearable unless he's welded to my hip at all times. Oh, and I guess we're weaning, as the sight of my breast in the daylight is like offering garlic to a vampire.
Thanks for the vote of confidence, kid.
But at least i'll be able to wear that chest-tight dress earmarked for Dec 25th, right ?
Oh - and the hair ? Apologies to the 'dresser'. It took a week, and the purchase of a new brush and some SERIOUS boy-putty in 'Surfer-Skate-Rock X-treme' .. but now i'm rocking it. I've *nevah* had hair that actually looks better the grottier it is, but Day 4 is awesome. If I can combine it with a 'inside-outside-frontside-backside' underwear routine .. just imagine how urban grunge I could be ?
Just don't stand too close.
