Here is the one I made for Callum and I will be sharing more ideas for how to decorate this easy to personalise project in the near future……An advert on You Tube!
Here is the link to the original post if you want to see the surprises inside this fun project.
Now for the garden and pond updates!!!
Last time the sun shone in our garden I pressure washed what used to be the place the previous owners of our house had their whirly gig washing line. We didn't like that kind of washing line so we got rid of it as it was the perfect place to put Callum's pool and then trampoline. Every year it needs weeding and the pressure washer makes it a little more fun. Here is the before…..
Plenty of grass to banish from between the block paving. Some considerable time later……..
The patio is lovely and clean but what about my feet!?…….
Yuk! I even had splashes on my face! My next job after a shower was to line the pond with sand.
Five bags of sand later….it was a bit of a job lining the walls but I got there and then Ivan and I lifted in the pond liner. Scary moment as for a minute or two we thought it was a bit small!
…..and guess who got the job of jumping in and out of the pond whilst it was filling to re arrange the liner so it was nice and neat?…….good job I had that shower.
I thought I might tease Ivan at this point by reporting that he was sitting under the umbrella sipping Pimms whilst I was hard at it……would be a good test to see if he keeps up with my blog ;-) tee hee
…..but really he was the one who fetched all the sand and mowed the lawn and made the Sunday dinner!
So that is it for this report as I am off to Edit Video 6 of my workshop. I'll let you see the finished pond once ……..mmmmm…..oh yes I get to stand in the water and finish off the edges with stones!
I have just been searching for the link I mention earlier and I found loads of fun stuff from way back in my blog archives and I think I am going to re post some of them….a kind of 'Blog Blast from the Past'. I think it would be fun……what do you think? Might try that on Thursday as tomorrow is WOYWW.
Have a great week and thank you for popping by X
