Not So Splendid
The deck will act as an outdoor kitchen and living area for the summer so we can cook and eat outside.
It was just our luck that once the driveway was pulled up and the footings dug we had so much rain that the back yard turned into a swimming pool.
The boys thought it was great fun and played in the rain and mud. I have given up trying to keep the inside of the house tidy and will just do a final cleanse and carpet clean once all signs of mud and building material have vanished.
It is our year to host Christmas for our family this year so we are thrilled that it will be outdoors alfresco dining.
I am so excited to be able to have a summer outdoor kitchen and can't wait to christen it with a great meal, good friends and lovely wine.
