What a wonderful weekend. Mum came down to look after Bert so we could get stuck in to the garden. Now the place looks fantastic, a long overdue going over has made the front yard look respectable again and the backyard is on the way. What proud little renters we now are.
But it wasn’t all work. In between weeding, mowing and ripping out we got in a visit to the market, a long lazy barbecue lunch, some laptopping (of the computer variety) under the tree, visits from Zita and Rob, two mum-and-dad-only trips for coffee, our first joint shopping trip in many months and a lovely dinner. Not only are we more relaxed than we have been in months mum has headed home with enough Bert love to get her through to Christmas so everybody wins.
