We spent most of the day today down in our bush gully hiding from the howling gale that was trying to blow our house away. It is so sheltered down there that when the sun was out, the kids were getting too hot for shirts.
Hubby went exploring last time he was down there and found a flattish spot near the boundary of our property. It was were a slip came down a couple of years ago and has been colonised by Tobacco weed (don't know it's correct name, but it's horribly stinky - like diesel). So we wanted to start clearing it off and we plan to use the spot for summer picnics. A flat, grassy, sunny space, the rocky bottom stream just there, cool bush to retreat into if it gets too hot, and lots of trees to climb and nooks to explore for the kids.
