614 - swings and round about
The Upside is I got through my Day of the Dead in one piece.
The Downside is I didn't win lotto. $20 million would have been nice I guess.
But mind and soul being intact is no mere consolation.
What's more we spent all afternoon sweating over the garden bed. The dreaded trip to the Big Hardware Superstore that sends me into a meltdown like a three year old having a temper tantrum every bloody time. Digging in ten bags of mushroom compost, organic chicken poo fertilzer, laying down the lucerne. Good for body as my as soul I reckon.
And then just after we cracked a drink to celebrate on labours...it began to rain. Two hours of delightful wet stuff. Just what the garden needed.
Swings and roundabouts.
Lets hope the dead brothers birthday next month and Christmas go as smoothly.
