ABOVE:  Happy Birthday to our grandson Dante... we hope you have an awesome day.  And CONGRATULATIONS on being awarded 'Student Of The Week' on Friday!  Well deserved.

GARDEN PROGRESS from yesterday:

 ABOVE:  This section of the garden is mostly our stuff and two new plants I bought the other day.  It's looking lovely.

 ABOVE:  I love how this is such a pretty front door/entrance feature.  It's going to look even better once we get a new fence there.  We are going to make a screen type thing to hide the air conditioning unit too.

 ABOVE: Stew did so well clearing everything off the BBQ Table.  Most of it has gone around the back for now, to be positioned around the property at a later date.

ABOVE:  He pulled out three roses and two shrubs from this garden.  I will be getting new plants for this garden, and adding some that I bought with us from our Cambridge garden.

For the rest of this week I am going to concentrate on Christmas Preparation.  I've done NO gift shopping... and I would like to get the tree and decorations up too.
So... I might be going shopping today.


2.42 pm:  And I've just returned home from shopping.  It was EXHAUSTING!
I went to the Base, then into the city centre too.

I think I have 90% of the Christmas presents, so I did well.

ABOVE:  Molly, (the ex-cleaning trolley), is super handy for transporting shopping from the car to the house I must say.  *smiles*

Now 'all' I have to do is wrap and label it all, put up the friggin Christmas tree and decorations, and I'll be ready for Christmas.

I might just wait till Steve and Bex get here... and let them do the tree and deco's.  I'm just too bloody tired to contemplate it right now.

End of the day and it's been a quiet, lazy evening.  Lovely to know the bulk of the unpacking is done.
