The autumn weather is glorious, with sunny days and crisp nights, and it's lovely in the evenings to snuggle infront of the the warm fire while we listen to Eric's reading homework.
We're having much more success with our seedlings in the hotbed now -- I replanted vegies and sweetpeas, and the latter are already up and setting their first seedleaves in the open. Hopefully Dad and Jumps will get my borders netted over this weekend, and when the next load of manure arrives we'll finish up the second new circular border. I have 10 new David Austen roses (barerooted) arriving in June, and the beds need to have settled by then.
Jumps and I also went to see a longtime schoolfriend friend perform in a musical -- she was fantastic, although the musical perhaps needed some tweaking -- while Papa and Eric spent the day together at the big zoo in Sydney, and the Grandmothers minded baby.
And we've been to two birthday parties -- one for little Hannah next door, and the other for a puppy who just turned one! Bouncy Dulcie wore streamers, received presents and cards from her guests, and even had a cake shaped like a bone!
