Out side.....

I am loving this beautiful winter sunshine we are getting.

I am getting so many odd jobs done..
Today I worked outside and got the veranda and courtyard cleaned.
If you look closely you can see I have had to board up the side steps.
I couldn't stand the dogs up here any longer, arghhh puppies and dog hair, honestly my veranda was starting to smell like a dog kennel.

The veranda really needs a good staining on the floor boards before spring as they are getting very faded.

Next it was out to the courtyard and a good clean up out here.
We still use out here through the day on week ends and every thing needed a good clean.

This area is the go between from the back door to the car shed so it tends to be the dumping ground for shoes.

Now all I need to do is get out and cobweb the house on the out side. That is a bigger job though and I'm putting it off.
It is school holidays here for the next 3 weeks so things are a bit more relaxed..
Will and I are having late mornings in bed and lots of chilling time together.

Have a great week all



  1. Your verandah and courtyard are lovely! We have just a little porch at the back door and ours is like a dog kennel too as that is the only place the dog can sleep outside out of the weather. Every time I go out there, dog hair puffs up around me!
    We have three weeks of school holidays too. Isn't it great to have them home?

    1. Dogs you have to love them, I must admit my Molly sneaks into the house and pretend not to see her... Thanks for stopping by.

  2. How long does your furniture stay clean out on the verandah? We cop a lot of wind so my outdoor setting is always dusty and dirty (and we dont sit out under the pergola too often) - it being 12C and all! I have trouble with birds messing and lots of spider webs. Ugh!

    1. Joolz I am the blower Queen, I go out and blow the veranda once a week gets down all the dust and cobwebs....Now the dogs are not up here it a weekly job only....
