After all the rain we've had in the past few days, I thought it would pay for me to check out the hole on our fence line again.
The contractors had filled it in, but then dug it up again to connect the sewer line on the other side of our fence, for the new house that will be built there.
They had shored up the hole by our fence... but I kinda thought it wouldn't hold after all the rain.....
ABOVE: the tomato plants are going crazy...
So are all our potted vege plants. We have been eating lettuce, spring onions, chives and spinach from our pots for a couple of weeks now.
ABOVE: the rain has battered my hydrangeas... and I forgot to put sulphate of aluminium in the soil before they flowered, so they are not as blue as they should be. They look really dismal.
ABOVE: a win here! This grapevine is finally growing well. One day I hope it produces heaps of grapes for us. OMGosh I love grapes.
Today: BEX AND DANTE come home. They will be home by dinnertime (evening). I am sure they will be happy to get home again.
Not sure what is on the agenda for the day yet... but I do have to go out and post a parcel to me Mum in Australia. I've left it a bit late for her to get it by Christmas I think. *sigh*
We had a quick visit from Kelly, Gordon and Rena this morning... then once they had gone...
We went out. To Hamilton.
And did our Christmas shopping, plus got a couple of things for us too.
ABOVE: it was a tight fit, but Stew got it all in.
We did all our shopping in the one place, and got rewarded with a FREE Turkey, two FREE Half Hams and a FREE Chicken too!
Now that sort of shopping I like.
Now we are home again, and Steve is about to head off to the airport to pick up Bex and Dante.
I can't wait to see your wee man... yeah, yeah... and Bex too! *smiles*
End of Day: lots of loves tonight from master Dante. Lovely to see them home again. Photos tomorrow.
