We've just had our garden changed to make it child friendly and low maintenance. All poisonous, thorny or unidentified plants have been removed and the lawn levelled and re-turfed. The decking at the far end now has a fence to stop Harvey driving backwards off it! And there is a new slide down onto a rubberised area. The decking at the house-end has been completely replaced with a new, larger area for our table and chairs, an enclosed fence, storage underneath and fancy lighting set into the floor!
The Guinea Pigs also get a new "high rise home" with legs on their hutch!
The yard has been repaved with a very similar block paving (bordered using the original paving stones).
The flower bed along the fence opposite the back door has been removed leaving 3 small beds for the climbing plants. We're aiming to use the barrel planter (seen here outside the back door) as a herb garden.
What a busy month! Apart from all the events detailed below, Charlie got his first tooth and his first passport (using this photo) and we took the sides off Oliver's cot so he now sleeps in a "big boys bed".
We recently had some pictures taken of the boys in Mothercare. We were approached in the shop by a woman from PixieFoto who said they'd had a cancellation and that if we would like to fill the spot we could have the photo session and one free picture for £5. It's a clever ploy, because they know you're going to fall in love with the other pictures and the 5 additional photos ended up costing us £100!!!
