It started to rain last night, and its still raining! Don't get me wrong - I'm not complaining! We need water! I wish I had a camera when I drove to the bank this morning - the road was completed flooded! On some corners, the water went up to the doors, of some smaller cars!!! You can't really see that its raining in this photo, but it is! I have sheets on the line, and they are so wet they are nearly dragging on the ground!!! Also see our new fence! YAY! Last week both our Dads, Mr T and a friend, put up the back fence and a new side fence (not in this pic) - it's the cream one, at the back. Its lovely. No more sheets of ironing flapping in the breeze, that I'd tried to tie up with bits of wire and stuffed bits of wood in the gaps, to try and stop Chewy Dog from escaping! Next on the agenda, is Gingerbread cookies! I went to my sis-in-laws yesterday to watch a couple of the kids, while she worked, plus its a good reason to go down for a swim in their pool!!! The kids had a ball with their cousins, as always, and we made some gingerbread cookies too! They are sposed to be for Christmas Day - but I'll be very surprised if we have any left by then!!!
And lastly, a very good friend of ours is a Patisserie Chef and makes amazing dessert creations - this year, its Gingerbread Sleighs & Truffle Trees. Her Mum works for us, and gave us a Sleigh as a gift! Its amazing. She's so clever! I've ordered 2 Truffle Trees, and when they come, I'll snap a pic of them too!
4 DAYS TIL CHRISTMAS!!! (now I'm starting to freak myself out!!!)
