Photos of Tainn are now on his very own page:

We now have an extra block and a shed that's bigger than our house: photograph">

Detente

Our old cat Ruby, the tabby, seems to have resigned herself to Pippin's affections: photograph

Also, work has commenced on the expansion of Lesley's studio into what was my shed. (My shed will soon be Gary's old shed, which is larger than our entire house!) photograph

Our Cabin at Wallaga Lake

April 12, 2015

Lesley and I have realised that we don't want to stay anywhere other than Wallaga Lake for our holidays, so we've bought out own cabin there. I've given it its own page here: photograph

We'd love friends and family to come and stay with us in the future - I'll let you know the details later on.

Gorgeous Grapes

February 25, 2015

What's in the bucket is about a tenth of the total this year from just the one vine! I've been making grape jam, which is made only from grapes, without sugar or pectin: photograph

Plow/ugh

I was going to put this pleaux in its own garden and call it the "Plau Garden" but I realised it would look nicer in the Tank Garden. photograph I've left my job cleaning at the retirement hostel and started doing gardening, lawn-mowing, rubbish removal and odd jobs. I traded 4 hours work for this ploue and another one nearly as good. I think they're the type that was pulled by a cough. Or maybe a horse.

Happy 2015

January 1, 2015

My New Years Resolution: 720p, same as last year...

Also, I've changed the layout of the site so that the blog section has the full width of the page. Now that most people have fast internet it makes more sense to have decent-sized photos, and the old layout wasted the available space by having the "Pages" menu using up a third of the width.
Here's a nice wide shot of the new Tank Garden, agapanthi courtesy of Cath & Paul: photograph

Also also, I'm now using a font called 'Bubblegum Sans'.
