It's still quite cold in Brisbane but the days have been so glorious and sunny. We've been taking advantage of the dry weather and cleaning some of the winter cobwebs away.
We took the high pressure cleaner from the back shed and cleaned our outdoor furniture which was looking quite grubby. I also gave our old outdoor table a clean and oiled it. It's not a fantastic job but it's a bit tidier than before.

|It's a lot cleaner than before and is another place to sit for the boys when they have their friends over. Notice, I also cleaned the concrete...|
The boards just sucked in that decking oil. Jason's applied three coats so far.

Earlier in the week, I went with one of my friends to a fair trade wholesaler of hand crafted gifts on Brisbane's southside. It was completely awesome. I picked up a 'children of the world' bunting which was handmade in West Bengal, India for the boys' cubby house. I loved it so much, I bought a second one for Son #3's Kindergarten as it is quite multicultural.
(If you want to know the details of the wholesaler just email me, you will need an ABN to purchase from them though)

And in very exciting news, work on our side stairs will hopefully commence sometime this week. We can't wait!
