Working in the garden...??

First day of the holidays and I have already set my boys to work.  I have a long list of things that need doing.  Aren't I a mean mother.  The boys are so desperate to play nintendo that they will do anything to earn nintendo time.  Today was the first easy job, sweeping and raking the garden.

Although I'm not sure how much work got done, some worked while the other played.

I think there is a little leaf mulch on the garden beds now to keep those spring bulbs toasty warm until it's time for them to pop up.

And we did manage to keep the noisy Miner birds from bothering a homeless little Ringtail possum who was trying to have a nap.

Oh how I want to build him a little home for his own, so the Miners and the Currawongs stop bothering him.

that's what the winter holidays are for Lisha (bribery!) - poor little possum :(

We want to come and visit your cosy home again - you have a beautiful family. I hope everything works itself out sooner rather than later and in the meantime you find lots of ways to preserve yourself and be kind to your feelings and even your frustrations xxxx

Thanks Carli, I'm trying.
