Time to get back to it.

The holidays are over and its back to it. I did plan to post during the break but I'm sorry I was having too much fun hanging and taking the days extra slowly with my little gang. We spent each day at our complete leisure with visits to the local billabong/zoo, parks, shops and lots of colouring in and craft before spending the second week camping at our favourite hang out spot which just so happens to be only just over an hour north of us. I have concluded from our 4 out of 6 nights of rain whilst camping that we need to invest in some serious shelter for next time! Some might call it glamping, but I tell you there is nothing worse than soggy soggy everything. It almost put me off ever camping again! Plus all my whinging could nearly have put off hubby....yes a little bit of whinging from me. I dont like being wet (unless I am swimming or showering)! The days were amazing though and I spent the best part of the last 3 mornings surfing until my arms and body could surf no more. We camped with our extended family which made it even more amazing. I'm so grateful to have such a wonderful crew I can call family.

Broad beans already popping out pretty little flowers.

My beautiful Arum Lilly from my Nana and some Salvia to complement.

Okra from Bridget @ 

Choko looks like it might fruit soon - hopefully, its had a rough trot!

Pumpkin growing on the other side of the fence, I hope no one tries to pinch it....
The garden is still producing and providing something each day. The eggplant just wont stop. Luckily my neighbour likes them as well. I have just popped into the ground most of my seedlings and also put our some new seeds direct into the ground. I am still trying to work out the best method with my seeds here as some dont seem to do too well and others just fine. Trial and error I guess and luckily not too much error. I tried to adjust the garden layout and moved some plants that were in the ground into pots and as you can see from the picture below, they are not happy. Thankfully I know this is how they sulked when I was first given them and they eventually come back to a full and vibrant life. We have had so much rain over the last couple of weeks that the ground is a bit of a soggy mess. I'm so glad the garden beds are raised and they dont seem to be suffering from water logging like the grass in the yard is. 

Not happy.

Afternoon tea for the wee ones.

A beautiful spider web catching the morning dew.

Tried to get a pic of Ruby but she just wants her belly rubbed!

Hard at work, shifting a load of mushroom compost into the garden.
The days ahead are going to be hectic I think. Our renovations will begin soon and there are a lot of phone calls to make, organising and meeting to be done, it hurts my brain already just thinking about it. The excitement of the finished job will hopefully get me through. Does anyone have any super tips that might have saved them through a reno. I dream of a smooth and quick job but I know in reality and from all the experience I've had to deal with from this house already, that will not be the case. Thank goodness my hubby is the one with the cool head and when I doubt I'll just leave it to him......maybe, hehe. Talk again soon. x
