Bit behind with the posting here. The plans have kind of gone out the window, because the boys have both come down sick :(
So for Tuesday: We were going to catch up with Jess up at Elwood, but she wasn't well, and as it turned out, the boys got sick too. Instead we stayed around home and they vegged watching ABC kids, while I got some housework done, then we headed off down to the shops. While we were there we picked up some sausages and bread and headed off to Mt Martha park, for a play, and I thought I'd use the BBQ's there to cook the sausages for lunch. By the time I pulled up at the park, I looked in the back seat and both boys were sound asleep. Thinking that if I woke them they'd be ferral, I drove home to let them sleep. As murphy's law would have it, the minute I parked in the garage (yes, can get the car in the garage now!) and got out of the car, they woke up :( We cooked the snags on the BBQ at home, and played in the garden. Later we ventured out the front, to weed one of the garden beds. BIG job, but one is now done. Only 12 more to go. Remind me why we bought a corner block with TWO massive nature strips? While I weeded the boys played. They rode their bikes, played with the neighbourhood kids, dug in the garden with me, collected bugs, but couldn't find the bug catcher, so Liam decided to use Bretts fishing esky to collect snails in. Gross! He made them a nice little home, with grass, branches etc, and even a container of water. Ewwww, I hate snails. I have a total phobia of things that don't have legs. Especially the squishy kind. Worms, slugs, snails, jelly sacks etc.
I used to love gardening at our old place, and we had a beautiful garden, but then I started taking photos... and well, that pretty much took up all of my time since then ;) Maybe not waiting for DH to do things, and just doing them myself isn't such a bad thing. I do refuse to mow the grass though. I know once I do it, it will also become one of my jobs. I'd rather pay someone to do it, than give myself another job
