STEW HOME TODAY

Stew has taken today off so he can get the big gaps in the concrete 'paths' onto the lawn filled in.

So, instead of the railway sleepers, he's going to fill up the holes with soil, then sand, and lay pavers on the top.



We want to get that done before the weekend, as Steve, Bex and the boys will be here, and it's not too safe with big gaps in the paths.  They are quite deep, you would break ya leg if you stepping in one while walking/running.

I'm also hoping we can make a start on the new garden under the kitchen/lounge windows.

There's also a bit of housework to be done... THAT never changes eh?  

Monday is a public holiday (Labour Day), so it's nice that Stew is having a 4 day 'weekend'.

We are going to the movies tonight to see Angels and Demons.  Another Tom Hanks movie... I'm really looking forward to that.

ONWARD...

Well... I clearly 'forgot' to mention it's my Birthday today.... but Leanne let the cat outta the bag!

So... 


ABOVE:  I wonder what my darling husband got me?


ABOVE:   No prizes for guessing!  Another Britto figurine, isn't he gorgeous!



ABOVE:  I don't know WHY?  Tallulah really likes Keera!  She still growls at her sometimes, but mostly, she's very good with her.  Weird dog.


ABOVE:  I went down to Amber Nursery, which is our closest nursery, to get a tree for the new corner garden.
I got one within a few minutes, with the help of a staff member... AND I got the purple/blue flowering standard tree as well, cos it's GORGEOUS.

I will show you the new corner garden tree, once it's in the garden.

Right, we have stopped working outside.  Well I have to admit Stew did almost all of it!
I will have photos of the new garden tomorrow.

For now...


 ABOVE:  We have two strawberry plants... they survived the cull.  Now we have a few strawberries growing.

ABOVE:  Bex and Steve gave me this Birthday gift.  Bex made the little bag... it's lovely.


ABOVE:  Inside the bag, all of this!  What a neat gift... thanks Bex and Steve.

I'm going to sign off now, Stew and I are off to Hamilton for dinner and a movie.

  20. Happy Birthday Chris. Enjoy your special day. I love the britto...I found some in a local shop, I didn't know about it until I started reading your blog. If the dancing hippo with the tutu is still there on pay day I'm going to buy it for me for Chrissie. I can't think of her name.
