I quite like what I've done outside; in the rain! I bought an old dressing table for $5, and I've made it into a planter. I also got rid of the gravel from that area and I've put soil and grass seeds down! Of course I had to put the wire down... Sharpie would dig it up if I didn't!
And as for the Squeeze... He sat inside on the computer while I did all the back breaking work and then came inside to cook a roast lamb! lol
So I reckon I've about another week or so of cleaning up and beautifying! Then what..?
