Today I made another owl..................
.............and another cover for a glass vase. it was blue before, now it matches the pink conservatory..................
Last November Mark bought six boxes of these heat logs from Aldi to try. To be honest we didn't think much of them, they burnt OK but the embers didn't seem to stay warm enough to alight anything else we threw at them afterwards. They are OK as last logs to use on a night time but not to keep continue the fire going for a while. Last winter we used three boxes, we still have three boxes left. This afternoon I chopped each log up into halves or thirds. They should not be put on the fire as a whole as they expand. I am getting a dab hand with an axe!
After work Mark took apart the triple swing, slide and gas BBQ in the back garden and left it outside the front of the house for the scrap man. They are all approx 10 years old now and rusty. Anais and Roman are too big for them now and use them as a climbing frame instead of swing and slide. The garden is now empty. The lawn has been mowed one last time before winter.
A chocolate cake made..................
This evening we went Star Gazing as Roman is mad on space. It wasn't very child friendly. Anais and Roman did a quiz each, we read the information boards and then left.
I am Michelle (41), mum to Anais (17) and Roman (12), been married to Mark (46) for 18 years, stay at home mum.
