RSPB Giving Nature a Home
Progress at last on the Grand Design house behind us. The wooden frame went up this week – it does look high. Much discussion from our back window. OH is dreading 2-storey while I am predicting (hoping) for rooms with high ceilings. Even worse there seems to be a large space (window) facing our back yard. Surely no one would have a north-facing window DownUnder . . or are they planning lots of a/c.
Next Door has cleaned up his front yard (dirt & clutter patch), laid a sprinkler system followed by instant lawn. The 2 garden beds remain unfinished – OH calls them ponds!
We continue our nearly-every-day clean-up in garage. He is finding lots of cables, electrical bits & pieces & stuff he has no idea what it is for. But he can’t bear to throw out “in case. . . .” I am trying to confine the mystery stuff to a single box. We did clear a lot out yesterday that being rubbish & recycling bins collection day. I am finding more of MY missing boxes hidden beneath HIS in supposedly his section of the garage.
Wendyb: Most driving signs are behind you? And they drive in the shade? I'm intrigued....
Rosy: I had no idea Maltesers came with low-calorie centers - that must've been way after my time. I don't think there were any low-calorie food versions of anything back then....
AQ: Good luck with the house behind you. Maybe you could plant some fast-growing trees just in case you find yourself overlooked? Glad you're finding your missing boxes - I think.... :-)
Have a good Saturday everyone - and good luck with Dennis.
