Only Tuesday...

It's only Tuesday and I'm frustrated.  Yep, frustrated.  The roadworks at Mum and Dad's house have become so that nobody can get to their houses and they've cut the road.  I had to park up the road in a car park and be walked down to the house and walked back through a 'safe zone' just to check on my parents' house.  It's not a good feeling when you can't do something you've promised to do when others are preventing you to do it.

But then, I'm not to blame really.  There's a company that been contracted by a company to install new storm water drains and a manhole.  However, the road has been cut today and I wasn't allowed near the house with the car.  So, one of the workers walked me to the house and walked me out to my car.  It's a massive job, but I've been told by the Logan City Council that they will be finished by Thursday afternoon and that if there's anything else that needs to be added to the road, they'll add it.  

I've been busily working on my back yard, and looking at what needs to be done, however, I'm hoping to work on getting just enough plants in my yard to enjoy it the way it is, with just enough lush plants to make the shady parts shady enough and pretty enough to pull it together.  And I do hope it does work out in the end; especially with some of my friend's plants I picked up from Park Ridge on Sunday.  
Anyway, yesterday I started to really feel the last week catch up with me.  So, today, being only Tuesday, I went out and did what only needed to be done and came home.  And I'm working around the house today... getting on with what needs to be done, as I've been on the go since Wednesday last week.  Well, I don't have much planned for the rest of the week - and I hope there isn't much planned for it - and so I'll be able to kick back and relax a bit more this week before I'm out and about again to pick up more for the back yard next week, save more money for the art area and work on getting in and working on the back yard... particularly the lawn. 
The last things I'm aiming to get now are:  statues, plaques, good solar lights (as the ones I have now are crap), lawn seed and a few more pots and potting mix for the new plants.  Then, it'll be sweet!  I'm hoping to buy cheap statues, not expensive ones, and the pots I want to buy are going to come from the cheap stores too.  But the rest of the stuff will be coming from Bunnings.  Well, until my next post, take care, keep safe and warm and remember, I'm always here.
