The summer heat has arrived, and so has my friend Jen -now enjoying a post prandial nap on the deck. Paul has made electric socket holders from a chunk of Grandad Carpenter's wood -shipped from UK 5 years and well worth keeping to hold some very smart plugs -just one is proving a challenge to attach to the wall! The office is slowly taking shape ... Meanwhile I'm wondering if the kitchen is cool enough to cook in so that I can keep the ripe tomato population to a reasonable level and start some ice ceam -a suitable pudding for supper when its 30+C. We had the annual flying black beetle invasion two nights ago -last night it was just the frogs that inhabit the deck keeping us company and Dagga amused.
