Recently I came across a link for a dream laundry.
It isn’t posh, instead, it is quite simple and streamlined.
Something to spur me on with our laundry.
In the beginning…
Out with the dead chest freezer languishing in the Laundry
Hooray we have a council Clean up…quick, what else can we find to fill that precious 3Mx1Mx1M area!
Our spacious laundry had multiple shelving in various sizes and randomly attached to the walls with Ramjet hooks by the previous owners.
Doing some Google research I thought I knew it all to remove those metal thingit studs. Finding instead that they create an ugly big mangled hole in the wall!
So a halt in the proceedings until one of our friends who is a great handyman can remove all those painful pieces of metal and plaster them up for us.
A collection of shelves
Most of the shelves removed
Look closely and find the mangled hole in the plasterboard above the PowerPoint
Needs replacing. We need a small shelf and then hooks below it
Then we can paint and refresh this great utility space.
So….watch this space for our budget clean up.

Even sitting here in the kitchen I could hear the wind gusts roaring through some tall gum trees at a park over the road. I know in some parts of […] Continue reading →

Far too windy today to do any gardening as can be seen by my grown from a cutting Lavender bush. It is sailing to the left. The plan had been to spray the Roses again for scale to really kill those suckers before all the new leaves appear on my for now Winter hibernating bushes. […] Continue reading →
Glamping.

Seize that moment, and savour it… Someone sounds happy thinking it is spring Vivid blue skies in the vault above But wait There are underdressed roses trying unsuccessfully to hide behind the Big red pelargoniam who are showing off in pots. So too, the wiry skeleton trees rattling their bones not able to hide at […] Continue reading →
