I know, I know, I have been a Blog slacker lately, sorry. It's been busy around here! We had a few days in Perth on short notice after we heard the sad news that Steve's Uncle Albert had passed away. So we paid our respects at his funeral and caught up with loads of extended family we haven't seen for years. Steve looks rather handsome all spiffed up don't you think, doesn't look like a bogan at all... :-)
Speaking of eggs, look at this, we've just had the one thousanth egg from our gorgeous hens, in 13 months. Clever girls.

Steve has completed the retaining walls up to the steps outside the sliding door behind the house. We are so pleased with how it's turning out, and Steve is happy because the hardest part is done. I had a lovely morning yesterday, and went to town on my own to visit, for as long as I wanted, two garden nurseries and did a buy up of plants for out the back. Such fun :-) Today was hard slog as I planted a good many of the plants, consequently I am sitting here in my jarmies at 5pm with a hot pack on my back, worn out!

It's an odd morning. It's very warm outside yet overcast, and the wind is swirly loudly in the distance although it's not really windy here. We have a severe weather warning in place for early this afternoon for very strong winds, and hopefully some rain. So, I decided to tackle some inside jobs. At the top of my list is THE drawer in the bedroom, the one where for the last 2 years I have just stuffed in any receipts out of my purse. One of those "I'll sort them out next week" scenarios, you know what I mean. Anyway, I went through the whole darn lot and tossed out a myriad of useless receipts, like the bottle of wine we bought on 28th May 2012. :-) Neo had the best fun however, pouncing into the middle of the pile, gleefully ripping papers into shreds. I live to amuse him.
