It's been a while....

Yes I have had a bloggy holiday and its been lovely.  

To tell you the truth I am finding that it has been nice not to be sitting in front of my computer so much.  Life moves on and we get busy doing different things and sometime we need a little holiday.

I am doing less of everything I was doing before and more driving but I am taking those little moments of quiet and claiming them as my own.

I just thought I would pop in and show you the progress of my swing seat, remember this?

My lovely hubby got himself busy during our dry winter and finished of the framework that was needed to hang my chair!  I did say I wanted it for my birthday and he took me at my word (my birthday is in about 2 weeks).  It has been totally worth the 12yr wait for this and to be honest if we had done it sooner I don't think we would have picked such a nice place to hang it.

Here is a little photo journal of the building process....



 Logs were cut....


 They were so heavy the neighbour had to come and help lift them with his tractor....


 Posts are in, it's almost as big as the Colosseum!!



Beams added....



and reinforced....



The boys helped too....



And the seat was hung!!!


The cousins were visiting so we got the boys to do a test run....


Then mum....


And finally Billy was able to sit and enjoy all his hard work...   :-)


I have named this the 'Serenity Seat' and one by one we have all fallen victim to her charms....



Victim 1.  Look closely and you can see Ethan's arm hanging down in front of the chair, its the perfect length for the boys to lie on....


  Victim 2. ....


 Victim 3. ....


This one seems to think he owns the seat...



If its quiet I know where I can find the boys....



 Victim 4.  The seat had to wait for this weekend to claim this one....



As for me?  I'm no victim, it was love at first sight!  I can't tell you how calm and peaceful it is out on my seat, the perfect place for a little me time.  Ahhhh... sweet Serenity




And here is someone else new who came to stay at our house just before the holidays.  Her name is Tess and she is adorable too   :-)
