To make it even more exciting, they managed to damage the main electric line into the house. Twelve hours and 150KD later, we had power again.

The best thing about a garden is when you use it.

It’s now warm enough to start playing with water in the afternoons – soon it will be too hot!  I have to admit, I probably had even more fun than the children did.
