Hi there!

I’m slowly working towards some simplicity within the home, but hey! It’s a lot of hard work!

I love having a go at growing my own veges and always use herbs fresh from my garden. I try to plant from seed whenever I can and have learnt to save and share my own seed for the following year. I make Award Winning preserves and pickles; and my husband brews Award Winning boutique beers as well. I love to stockpile and try to limit quick trips to the shops. I dabble in bread making and enjoy making my own stocks too.

I enjoy feeding my family good hearty meals, nothing like those tiny restaurant stacks you have to look for on the plate. My husband maintains our vehicles and machinery and we both enjoy fabricating on a small scale mostly relying on metal & timber recyclers for any materials needed.

While I don’t always have time to reply to comments, I love reading them. I hope you enjoy your stay and I hope you learn something new because I love sharing what I learn, and I'm always looking for another new skill myself.

A clean ramp

With the weather getting a whole lot wetter lately, the ramp at our house has been getting a lot of algae growing on it...I should have resealed it last Autumn but never got around to it.....
I have noticed it becoming more slipery with each rainfall....so with the sun shining yesterday, I got the pressure washer out....and got to work.....

All I need now is some really hot days to dry it, then I will reseal it with a good decking oil.

I am so pleased with the ramp and the work I did....It rests my mind to know it is much safer now.

I also need to repaint the gate I made a few years ago.

What a difference!

Having the pressure washer connected to the water tank
uses my free water.
