I can hardly move......I'm not sure I can speak, but fortunately, I can lift a HuuuGe glass of gin and tonic to my mouth. Just.
I've been shovelling stinky dirt, facilitating (is that how you spell it because it's been a long time since school) ebay pick ups because I've been at it again and selling randoms so I can buy something really awesome. I will feature the really awesome thing here very soon I promise you......it's a promise I swear.
I'm attempting to create a garden around a section of the pool because to be quite honest (and I always am) it was toooooo exxy to do the whole lot. But I'm nothing if not creative and an oasis I will create if it cripples me. Today I think it might have done just that. I can hardly move. The last lady that collected furniture from me this arvo asked if I was ok to lift a piece of furniture that weighed little more than twigs and I had to admit I wasn't sure if I was gonna make it to her car. My muscles won't work. I could barely open the fancy umbrella you see in pic no. 2 (remember it from here). My neighbour was watching me in complete disbelief and I pinched the skin on my hands attempting it, because I really need more blisters right about now......
Here's my pretty little foxtail palm......one of several I hope to plant here......
And the brolly......well, I got there eventually. Can you believe I didn't even have the strength to open it??? I'm quite slight but much stronger than I look and still nothin'......and look at that frosty glass of gin with a splash of tonic......a girl's not a camel you know ;O)
What a lovely spot it's turning out to be......you can see my G & T......if you look carefullee......tehe!!!
I'm off to get dinner for the random kids I have here this evening. I have carefully unwrapped a Woolly Boogers lasagne because it's the thought that counts and because I'm a good Mum to whoever happens to land here at Scandi Coast Home. I will even heat it in the oven and sling some salad across the island bench. Because I'm nice like that ;O)
LOVE Tania XX
