School holidays...

..when sleeping-in until morning-tea becomes the norm for the littlest kids..
because it's just too darn bright out there! And we are not willing to part with our winter pjammies (that we out-grew last year) because they are a great napkin for misplaced breakfast dribbles (but that only bothers Mum).

..when the dog only listens when she hears the word "walk"...

...and the parents can't sleep-in past 5am because that's when these ratbags start squawking loudly and don't take a break until their midday siesta.

...and then start up again until 6.30pm..

... when Mum decides that the cat is the only self-cleaning thing in the house...

..because even the cacti need a dust.

...and cleaning goes ballistic.

.. we discover we own a "spotted dick"!!!

(alias-drimiopsis maculata, a some-what rare victorian-era bulb, also known as a toad lily,charming,bet you wish you had one)

...that the best plants are the free kind, esp.flowering...


...that I should have planted twice as many babianas...

...that even the disposable gloves have had enough!! and are retaliating..


...that Mr CH doesn't own any clothes without paint on them either..
...that if I had pruned six weeks ago, I wouldn't have had to throw flowers away...



...this is the perfect place to hide a ball from your brother...

...14 years old and "bloomin beautiful"...

...we are amazed at how something that looks so revolting (mushroom compost at "a buck a bag")...
..makes sweet peas so much sweeter..



We've cleaned, sanded, painted, pruned, gardened our way through the holidays and can't complain. We survived sleep-overs and found ourselves childless for a while.

Have we been "flat-out like a lizzard drinking"?

What a ridiculous saying - he looks pretty chilled-out to me.

Enjoy the last three days of the holidays...
