Are you all familiar with the ‘Follower’ widget? Well I’d like to unfollow someone – myself! I can not tell you how I came to be following myself, nor I can’t work out how to unfollow myself either. Help.
When I couldn’t find sheets for my bed last night I knew the moment could no longer be delayed, it was time to de-clutter my linen cupboard. It was overwhelming, it was difficult, but it is now complete! I have two garbage bags full of tired sheets and doona covers to be tossed and I feel like I have shed a huge weight. As I worked I pondered on just how many material possessions the average family owns, and admit it can all be a burden.
I also spent time this week re-organising the shipping container, this then meant I could move some items from PC’s shed to the container. Furniture, filing cabinet, stationery, camping gear, sporting equipment, items that clutter up his shed. I also advertised on our local recycle board and moved along, a cupboard and window:) Now comes the tricky part, his shed needs a little re-organising to take advantage of new found space, however as with most Australian men, he is rather territorial about his space. So my job is probably done, just when we were getting to the fun part:(
With a break in the rains I finally made a reconnoiter of my overgrown garden. I should simply call it a jungle, all the rains meant I didn’t harvest a great deal. With the price increase of fruit and vegetables set to go still higher as the floods ravage Australia, I will have to make a very real commitment to a productive garden. Anyone want to join me?
The Gluten-free Almond Flour Cookbook has arrived. Carpenter’s first recipe trialed was a ‘Banana and Choc-chip cake’, so moist, so delicious! It truly was better than any cake I have ever tasted!!
I’m still on my Australian History binge, the more you read of our history, the more you realise what ill-prepared, brutal and corrupt origins we had. Then again we were after all a penal colony, that was the sole reason for Britain claiming this land, a land they ‘conveniently’ ignored was already occupied. However this adversity and the sheer nature of the land herself, is part of what makes us uniquely Australians.
PC will finish plastering the first three rooms tonight, this means tomorrow we are going to pick up paint!!! I can’t believe we are going to be painting this weekend:):) Only one teeny problem, we haven’t yet agreed on paint colour.
