As most of you know we arrived here on May 22 with our furniture and goods arriving a couple of days later ......... so much of this first month has been busy unpacking boxes and finding places for furniture to go, getting a couple of new bits of furniture to hold things like the wonderful bookcase and the glass cabinet which are both full already! The kitchen has been set up (well, pretty much so - there are a couple more bits to do), and it's been nice to begin putting a few touches here and there. Alot of work has gone on in the yard area with Pete removing the chook yard and pen, putting in water tanks, changing gates and we've added an extra vegie garden bed!
On the crafting front ..... I've been busy making curtains for several windows, working on the cardigan, and brought out some WIP's thanks to walking down to the local sewing/ patchwork shop and joining in with a lovely bunch of girls on a Wednesday morning! I think I've done more sewing this past month than I have for the past few months down in Bundalong before we moved!!
We've enjoyed drives around the local area and checking out various markets and have begun to make progress with all the changes needed on the admin side of things (car rego change overs, changes of address for numerous things etc etc - still got a few more to go!).
Unfortunately poor little Scruffy has not been well. Once again his mouth was playing up - even though he had dental surgery just a couple of months ago where they took out 5 teeth. So we headed up to the local vet here and it seems that he must have a bone infection in the jaw which is why his teeth keep playing up and becoming so loose ...... due to his age of 16 years the best option is some high dose antibiotics to manage the infection and pain meds as needed. He is still eating and enjoys being around us ....... although he was pretty keen to be leaving the Vet's rooms!!
Yesterday was such a beautiful sunny day ....... I've finally worked out where I'm going to put a flower garden ....... so yesterday afternoon I got to digging over the area which took quite a bit of work pulling up all the grass that was there. Sometime this week I'll begin planting it up after I put in a few soil additives to help boost it up a bit. This view is from the top of our back stairs, so I think it will be a nice sight to see once it gets going
Well, I'd say all in all we have had a very successful first month here ... Yee Hah indeed lol! And now with the Sunday Roast in the oven, I'm going to grab a cuppa and sit down and knit and watch a movie ........
See ya next time!
