Well the old man is certainly snoring again! 🌧 What are you up to today?
Yesterday I bought a curtain from the op-shop for our sons room. Previously we’ve had curtains without black-out, so we had to add a hefty blanket behind it to help block out the light properly (as that is essential when trying to get a little one to sleep during daylight savings time!) Because of our previous curtain set up, we weren’t able to ever open the curtains as it would risk everything falling off; so, we have always kept his room dark. Not entirely pleasant, hence why it’s really only been a room to sleep in, rather than play in.
Now we have curtain that can be opened, I gasped when I saw the state of the window!! So that is why I’m cleaning windows in the pouring rain!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you find you do that? Start one small job which leads to a whole series of successive jobs?
Already there has been a lot of play now his room has natural light. 👍
In my next post I will start to delve into our guesthouse and the plans we have there.
Wishing you all a wonderful day!
I went for a slow stroll around my garden this morning at 6am.
I love this time of the morning on a Sunday in summer when the garden is fresh, the spider webs are intact, and and the sun isn’t hot yet.
It is lovely to see the abundant growth after the rain.
I noticed that the lemon myrtle tree is about to flower in time for Christmas. 😊
It was a Guild of Assassins, after all. Black was what you wore. The night was black and so were you. And black had such style, and an Assassin without style, everyone agreed, was just a highly paid arrogant thug.

My own personal assassin. Get those thrips! Proud to find many of these guys on my roses lately. It means I am growing a healthy insecticide free garden!
Assassin bug (Reduviidae). Predatory insect (beneficial). Prey on small invertebrates such as aphids, beetles, and stick bugs.
Careful though! They won’t hesitate to bite a finger if you get too close 😮
