September Holidays

The holidays have begun. I have great  plans to get things done around my house.

On Tuesday I had a tree cut down from my front yard. Unfortunately I didn't take a 'before shot' but this is how it looks afterwards.

I now have a lovely big pile of mulch to spread over my garden.

I have begun spreading it over my garden.

I completed my tax on the weekend. It is the first one since I have been with Centrelink. I tutor for a few hours a week and have spent some money setting up an office and organising things.

Last year I began tutoring and working with Centrelink has been a bit of a nightmare so I needed an accountant to sort things out for me. I met Paul through a friend. He came to the house and his charge was very reasonable so I am putting his card here just in case anyone is looking for an accountant.

It is 3 weeks since I started this post. I have just been so busy so I am just going to conclude it by posting an array of photos from my past few weeks.

View out my kitchen window.

From now on I plan to write daily and post weekly. I want to keep more of a detailed record for my own sake and to see if I can improve my daily timetable. I just can't seem to fit my life into the allotted time!

  1. I love so many of your photos esp the little echidna/hedgehog with the toadstools, the Gymea Lily and the M&Ms on the cake. You should make the little girl a Olaf snowman for Christmas. I did a couple a few years back. We can do that together next week if you like? See you soon.

  2. Thanks Michelle. great to see you last week. Great idea about the Olafs. I will have to make 6.
