>I’s helpings Mum decorates

>With – or despite -the input of various four-legged ‘assistants’ [ and I am using the word in its loosest form ], the festive decorating has been completed in time for the arrival of various crafty friends and relations later this morning.

Even in the face of inundation of near Biblical proportions,

they are braving the water, and the potholes, and I expect these hardy souls to arrive armed variously with their quilting, crochet, knitting, spinning and embroidery … oh and food … lots of food.

David was busy after tea last night, creating his own culinary contribution : mini plum puddings


and in a tenuous water-related segue:
This rare sight is the overflow pipe from my dam doing what it is designed for

… overflowing.

With summer only 3 days away, and after the wettest Spring in a dam[n] long time

the dam is full

and thousands of litres of precious water are disappearing down the road
but
and I can’t emphasize this enough
[just in case you missed it ]
the dam is full
for the first time -or so I am reliably informed by the previous owner – since 1996

did I mention that the dam is full ?
