Anyway, we got some carpet and laminate samples, and then invited the A family and the C family over to check them out and give us their opinions. A couple of glasses of wine later and we had all made the same decision that Ken and I had made... pale cream carpet, and either a Blackbutt or a Sydney Blue Gum floor. We're waiting on the quote, and once that's received, I'll pick myself up off the floor, gulp a lot and find some money!!!
I've had a busy night tonight. I've made Limoncello - so will see how that turns out in a few weeks. I also made preserved lemons with the abundance that I have at the moment. They were $2.99 for a kilogram so I have two kilograms, plus what was already hanging around at home, and then another neighbour came down this afternoon for some worm wee, brought me a lovely bunch of flowers, and also gave me some lemons. I love where I live - the neighbours are all so friendly, we know lots of the people in the estate. Every one of them are lovely - it's the kinda place where you leave your front door unlocked (when you're home!!!) and people come visit and just knock & come on in if the door's open!!!
Here's the Limoncello on the left, and 2 large and 2 smaller jars of preserved lemons.... mmmm - Tagine's in winter will be coming right up!!! Do you see the lovely bunch of flowers behind the jars? That was my gift from Val!!!
Roger's been really busy. I put him on once every day, just in the Kitchen/Eating/Media room. After about 5 days, look what he's picked up!!!
Did I tell you that one of our chooks was moulting? God she looks just sooooooo awful! I hope she hurries up and grows those feathers again - she's going to be chilly if the weather turns!!!
Decluttered a pile of jars tonight - I'm going to turf them into the recycle bin. I know I need some, but really I had a whole shopping bag full, sure don't need that many! Felt nice to be able to do that and get just something out of the house! Also chucked into the bin a half eaten, half cut up woollen blanket. Don't have space for stuff!!!
Hope you are all well and happy - it's beddy bye time for this little duck right now!
