It's official!

According to my bank I am now a senior citizen. As a bonus for making the grade they are no longer going charge me for the embarrassment they feel at having to look after my money. It's like getting the 100 year telegram from the Queen, I am honoured (cheeky devils).



Anyway back on track. Although I have been a bit slack with the blog over the last few weeks I have not been totally idle. I have managed to get my pergola built without getting my brain fried, we have had a few days of less than 40 degrees over the new-year period. The pergola shades the north-west corner of the house and is built over a brick courtyard where the clothes line is. No more sunburnt washing and hopeful I can look forward to looking like a rainbow in my colourful smalls (no more sun bleached underpants for me).




The garden that had been a bit frazzled with the heat started to pick up a bit with the cooler weather over the last week or so, but the forecast is for more heat over the next week, so it will probably go backwards again. Still, the shade house has done its job and we have had a bit of produce. I think next year we will start the summer crops about a month early and use the shade house to hold them through the heat.
