So, among the kids stuff and renovations, I've let stuff slide. Let's stick to the yard for this edition...
This is at our front door. A cheery and welcoming set of unswept leaves, with a yellow kids Ikea bowl in them. This is...wait for it...our cat's food bowl. Stylish, no? It just screams love and care. Occasionally I lean out the front door, and pour a bunch of dry bits in the general direction of this bowl. Poor cat. She needs more lurv. And a broom.

So we dug the dirt out of one this winter and made it a firepit. Which we still haven't painted, or made a cover for. Coz that's how we roll. That last three feet elude us, again.
And the other two concrete circles are still languishing in the yard, full of dead weeds.
|Unnattractive firepit. Also note fallen-down light (which fell down in the floods. In January. Thanks again, Australia.)|
Finally, pause now, dear readers, to admire the vege garden. Yes, folks, with a season or more of neglect, you too can have withered pumpkin vine, abandoned watering cans, and unused compost bins!! Send no money now!
That giant clump of enormous grass behind the compost bin is lemongrass. It's like a triffid.
Lolly wants to plant seeds this year, tomato and cucumbers. We clearly haven't got to this yet.
So, these are the Things I Let Slide. An irregular celebration of the shit we all have that we just haven't got to yet.
