What we've been doing lately

There has been a bit of action around here lately despite the yucky, humid heat we are experiencing. Mr fish was doing not much in particular the other day so we convinced him to build a bird feeder to hang out the front! He did a rather good job of it considering all he was told was 'it has to have a roof and be able to hold a tray for easy cleaning'. He even put a little twig perch on the side for the birds to sit on. And oldest one had a great time 'helping' to build it.
The fishes got a new trampoline for xmas and it has been getting a fairly good workout though Mr fish is not that impressed with having another thing to move around when he is trying to mow the grass (which is quite often at the moment as we have had a bit of rain so it just keeps growing)
Here's a better pic of the treehouse with the elves in residence, we have made them some bedding and a rug and they have some little kitchen type thingies that are called re-ment (it's something japanese that is basically miniature bits and pieces that dolls would like to play with)

And finally we bought some fish. It has been the most exciting thing that has ever happened in the history of the world (according to the chief fish feeder) and they get kissed and cooed over every day. I think they are the most spoilt fish in the history of the world but what would i know! Good thing we kept out old tank in the shed all this time, knew it would come in handy one day!

So that's a bit of a round up of what's been going on here lately, how about you?


  1. Sounds like a wonderful time you all have been having. Love the treehouse...such a different idea.

  2. Well you guys have been very busy! That bird feeder is just great the girls must love the idea of attracting birds to there home. Goodluck with the fish too, hope your luck is better than ours we gave ours stress spots somehow and they up & left us. We got the hint and didn't replace them haha.

  3. Looks ike you have had a fun week. Love that you got Mr Fish busy:)

    Hope the fish survive there love from the girls - we have not ventured into fish yet.
