Working Bee

Yesterday we had a big working bee at home to get the landscaping finished in double quick time. At one point we had 25 workers and the whole place was finished and looking fabulous by the end of the day (photos to follow) - a bit like Mucking In, but without the cameras. We just need a new fence built and then we can lay the grass and finito - wonderful!

Thanks soooo much to all who helped, both Emilija and I very much appreciated the energy exerted and the time sacrificed on our behalf. Especially big brother Allan, who helped us buy the plants, plan the whole thing and organise the troops, mammoth effort all round - we love you all.

Hope you enjoyed the food & drinks, you were here so late we must have done something right. Also hope you aren't too achy today - I know I am and I didn't even do anything.

I had a splendid time! ..had no idea 'manual labour' could be so much fun.

The cups of tea and those fish cakes; and CP's soup, were lovely.

Really, mother was busy trying to tell me what was in it, what a con.

Children, children ... both soups were great, Carol's was a spicy lentil number and Mum's was a yummy pumpkin soup.

To be honest when we mixed them together that night they tasted even better - so there.

The pumpkin soup was the one I was talking about, never saw no lentil bullshit,
