Sink's Done!


To be honest, I haven’t been that productive lately. I find it hard to get motivated enough to even talk about how unmotivated I am!

My husband on the other hand has been pretty busy with the projects I have found the time to talk about. The outdoor sink that he was working on is all finished now.

The top is made of Macrocarpa that he resined together. We got the sink and the mixer second hand and he did the plumbing himself. So all up it took little money, about 2 weeks part time, and a lot of clever ingenuity!

This has been just great. Especially for the winter as it is now. Bathing the dog out here has kept my laundry a lot cleaner.

Work on the garden has taken a back seat because we have had a lot of rain, nearly a week of it! That’s a lot even for winter. This Kingfisher has been visiting and surveying the area. Think he’s wondering what we’re up to too!

Sink's looking lovely. I have felt pretty demotivated at times too. What with an entire summer of torrential rain and being very busy at work, the garden has suffered a bit. Jx

Thanks Jane. Your garden is still looking great. Great story on the Equestrian event! Would have been a fantastic experience. Watching the closing ceremony this morning and another good show put on GB! Have really enjoyed the Olympics, but probably to the expense of everything else - like everyone else I know!

Sink was put to good use yesterday when my son came back from a mud-plug! Just fantastic.
