Swing set makeover!

Happy Mothers' Days to all the mums. I had a nice day with brunch out, a brand new handbag and of course, some goodies from the school stall. I still marvel at how they source such lovely things for such small change!

Earlier in the week, I tackled a quick projuect. We were given an old swing set years ago, but I'll be honest, the daggy green and yellow colour scheme always irritated me. So I finally got around to spray painting it. Now it's much more in keeping with the rest of the house.

Before: After:

Much better!

A visitor

We had a cute little visitor to our house this week. Not exactly sure what species he (she?) is, but a more unusual bird for us. We usually get magpie larks, magpies, doves, ibis, crows, wagtails (my favourites).
