Winter is nature's way of saying, "Up yours." ~Robert Byrne


So, it would seem we skipped Autumn all together, and went straight to Winter. The trees are desperately trying to catch up to the weather, and there are still a couple of birds frantically packing up and heading north. But oh my god, Jo’burg is suddenly freezing cold and grey.

We bravely tackled a renovation project at home (rebuilding two of our boundary walls) that is finally nearing completion. What used to be our front garden is still a pile of rubble, and everything is covered in dust.


The cats have been loving the new playground – despite hating the disruption to their daily routines.

We have been very fortunate to work with a fantastic builder, who has removed a lot of the stress from the process. But, even so, it is not for the faint hearted, and I would probably not do this again. If ever we had to attempt a build project again, it will not be where we live.

The husband and I built a cupboard yesterday to store our rapidly growing DVD collection. We will need to build another soon, as this one is kinda full already.
