And it glows at night!! This is the pool with lights on.
Yep, happy kids = happy parents. I think (if the rain stops long enough) that this is going to be a great summer! When we started out on this journey, building a new home, I said I would only go through with it if we could afford to put the pool in too. It's a big investment, but when you plan on hanging at this house for a long time and have a couple of young kids, I'm already thinking it has been worth every cent. (still need to paint the wall behind the pool and landscape around it)
I visited the framers I use yesterday. My posters have arrived and I had another couple of things to be sorted too. So in a week or two we will have a big day finally getting some colour on our walls.
DH and I have been trying to estimate our next round of soil and turf so we can complete the next stage of the backyard and start the front. The front will be a 'good enough for now' effort and we can add more/correct if needed later.
This weeks flowers for my bedroom...I decided to pop some colour into the room this week.
My son, Connor, would love a dog...but DH isn't a 'dog family' man. Luckily Connor had a little 'fix' of puppy cuddles when a friend popped in with her new puppy. Meet Alfie...
He is just adorable! My friend is away for a week in January and is looking for a puppy sitter...we'll have to work on dad - it is just 1 week after all!
We are so busy at the moment that not being able to get stuff done is a little frustrating. I have DH's birthday Wednesday and Connor's Friday...big week ahead. We will get there I guess, slowly but surely. At least my reports are all but ready to go home and work is winding down for the year. We really hit the ground running, and haven't stopped since moving in, and are very much looking forward to the holidays.
I hope everyone in Sydney enjoyed the sun after the dreadful week we had. Have a good week everyone!
