Weekend Warriors

It's the weekend & MOTH & I are going our separate ways. He'll be in building mode in our main bathroom, which is now just a gutted shell - albeit with a hole in the outside wall I could drive my car through! (Pics next week with an advance warning to 'Look away now!') And weather permitting, I'll be in our 'jungle' planting up a new garden bed Son #4 very kindly prepared for me on his week off from the wilds of his much-loved job in Northern Australia.

Whatever your plans are, have a fabulous weekend! I really loved all your fabulous comments on yesterday's post - I laughed & laughed! MOTH tends to do his best thinking when locked up all day in a room that's he's renovating, so stay tuned. As he emerges from the dust & grime of the bathroom each night, I have a feeling I may well have a couple of posts for next week on the go. When I hear him utter those famous words "Millie, I've just been thinking......." I know we're on a roll!


  1. Millie~ On a roll...or in trouble! Sometimes when the men say something such as that- it can mean a heep of trouble! Hope you have a delicious weekend of planting and relaxing. Planting??? It will be months before that wonderful task is in front of me.

  2. Enjoy your gardening - will think of you as we wrestle with the last of the great agapanthus harvest. Glad you liked the peonies - I planted a couple 2 years ago. Very slow going but hopefully will be rewarded with beautiful flowers - fingers crossed!

  3. I love a woman who can put a husband to good use! Have a good one.

  4. Millie...Pretty soon you can soak in your new tub after hard a day in the jungle. Can't wait to see pictures of the garden and the bath. Enjoy your weekend. ♥Rosemary

  5. Enjoy your time in the garden Millie - I think it is best to stay outside well away from any looming trouble :) Amanda xx

    Have golden weekend!

  9. Sounds like you and MOTH have a dirty weekend ahead? Have a wonderful time! ;)

  16. Have a great weekend you too Millie!

  17. I love Stirling. I have family in Crafers, when I visit there we sometimes shop in Stirling. I love the fruit shop and bakery we go to there.

  18. Enjoy your garden, Millie! The weather has been so perfect, it's impossible not to get out there in it! I can't wait to see what the husband has done in the bathroom, and what a nice son you have!
    Happy weekend!
