It took me two weeks to get the house all sorted! But I have a garden too. I had used it; I sometimes drink coffee on the concrete steps, and when I have guests I sometimes drag some kitchen chairs out. But it was all a bit makeshift. And I have three summers here; it would be worth investing a bit in making the most of it. So after due consideration I decided to buy a classy wood four-seat furniture set. And the next day it arrived. After work I assembled it. And the next morning, when it was sunny, I dragged the table and one of the chairs onto the lawn and had my first well-facilitated al fresco breakfast! May many follow. And I hope there'll be al fresco dinners and BBQs and whatnot too!
