We returned from Thailand early in the morning on Friday and where greeted by 10 degrees in Melbourne. Brrrr!
We had a fun relaxing trip, but now it's back to reality. For two weeks I didn't cook or clean which was bliss.
I'm still feeling very lazy, but yesterday I had to crank things up a notch as housework called and the garden needed a lot of attention.
The girls and I got stuck into what was a sorry looking veggie patch. By the end of the day we had pulled out all the weeks, turned the soil over, dug in compost and built a fence to stop Lucy from getting in and digging it over again. Phew!
That was a shock to the system, but we are happy with our efforts and are excited about growing our first veggies in a proper garden. In the past we have only grown a few herbs in pots as we have never had this kind of space before.
It was lovely to have a break, which was much needed, but now Spring is here and we have lots of projects ahead for Doris (our house) that will keep us busy over the coming months.
