Hot & Moist

. We’ve had a couple of weeks of extremes on the weather scale… This time last week we were in the midst of a deluge, and were out in said deluge digging drainage trenches, and watching our 10kg doorstep float away!! The good thing about the rain is it replenished some ground-water, which was badly … Read moreHot & Moist

Time flies…

.

Firstly – we’d like to thank all of you wonderfully kind folks who sent your thoughts, love and support (and $$s!!!) to our Family members who’d been through the trauma of Hurricane Irma…

Jammin’

. Today we’re rockin’ it out – and we’re jammin’….! Strawberry Jammin’ that is 😀 Yep – you can buy home-brand strawberry jam for super-cheap at the local supermarket, but when you read the ingredients on the back of the jar/tin, it can definitely give you a case of the willies, wondering why allllll that … Read moreJammin’

You’ll never guess…!

. We know you’ll be stunned to hear this – but we’ve had more rain! Almost a fortnight of constant drizzle if truth be told, and the odd day of sunshine that we saw prior to that, was definitely fleeting. But thats the usual way of winter up here in the North – but then … Read moreYou’ll never guess…!

MORE visitors and job being done!

.

We’ve certainly had a few cold nights during the first couple of weeks of June, with the mercury hovering seriously close to ZERO °C on a couple of occasions.
We’ve also had some light frost and the winds have amped up a bit, which adds to the
