I had all of my children home on the weekend and a few extras to celebrate my middle son David's birthday on Saturday .It was nice to have them all here as it rarely happens now they are all grown up and leading their own lives. At the moment they are all not too far away so I get to see them a little bit more than I used to.
The fog has started early this year although Sunday morning it was only around the hills. We have already had a couple of days this week where the fog is so thick it has been nearly impossible to find our drive.
Sunday night I went and had dinner with my Sister in law as my brother was away fishing. She whipped up a beautiful prawn curry and a salad from Jamie Oliver's cookbook. Steph is an amazing cook and it was an absolutely delicious meal.
While I type this post Dave is out splitting the wood we brought home and finding all manner of insects and spiders under the bark. He isn't very impressed at all. There are so many Huntsmen Spiders living under the bark that I was wary when loading the wood on Sunday and if I had of known about the massive centipede that he just found I would probably have stopped picking it up and throwing it in the trailer.
At least we are getting a full woodshed because I think we are going to need all the wood we can get.
