what we've been doing

As I mentioned in the last post, there isn't much happening around here that isn't painting or cleaning. Over the last month, everything has been moved in and out of the house at least once.

Here we are, hanging out on the back porch - trying to stay out of the way and not get stepped on.

These daggy looking steps have now been painted charcoal grey and look much better. Ah, the power of paint.

Here is a photo of us helping Neil celebrate winning this big trophy. Seems he was the one who rode his motorbike the most over the year. He was pretty pleased with his win. To me it just meant he had zoomed off without me too many times!

We don't blog so much these days, but we always read everyone else's posts. Kay says it's the only cheerful, non-political news she gets these days (except when it's about one of our friends crossing the bridge - then we get a bit teary and sad). So everyone, stay happy and well!

we revisit Sherwood bridge

We had to go to Sherwood bridge to gather river stones for decorating our garden. There are an amazing amount of stones, so nobody will miss the few buckets that we took.

This might have been the last fun time we had since Christmas. It has been work, work, work ever since!

Neil and Kay built a cool deck up at the Arakoon house. Once the decking was in place I realised that I had the perfect spot to keep an eye on the entire neighbourhood... hah! nothing will escape my eagle eye now. Here is how it looked as it was being built.

Once we got back to Sydney, the work continued. It's all ladders and drop cloths as just about everything is getting a fresh coat of paint. Word is that the house is going 'on the market', which is different from going to the market. Hmmm. Mostly it means less trips to the park for us dogs!
