To make me smile

Doing the groceries yesterday and I saw this Azalea for sale. Now when I lived in QLD I never had much luck with my azaleas - but this just looked so bright and pretty I decided it needed to come home with me.

I'm not quite sure where he'll go? Maybe between the driveway and front path where my lilac is now doing so nicely.

How gorgeous is this Azalea?

Hopefully I have better luck in this climate!

Let there be (sky)light

The light in the kids' toilet has blown (I actually think it's the transformer) and while I am arranging to have a sparky out for that and a few other little jobs, it occurred to us that really for daytime a better thing would be a skylight. The room has no external wall access (hence no window) and had I thought of it I'd have had it put in at time of build.

Anyhow I didn't - and so today had the skylight installed. And what a difference!

This is with no light - just the skylight

Huge difference

No excuse for not keeping it clean now
