Feels a little like Christmas

Well, it;s raining here again. Which for what has been a drought stricken State, a very good thing, however it is unusual to see so much rain, over in Western Australia, it was hot, very hot and dry..  Today has been the first real potter day for me in our new house.. well 15 year old house, it has at times a cottage-ie feel to it and I love that. This is the day we moved in and the removal guys are required to unpack to the bench the breakables, then they leave and this is what your left with. Chaos. This is the kitchen and family room, the rest of the house looked almost the same.

I have been working really hard to try and make it feel more like home, rather than a house with our stuff in it. I know it is just a time thing really. 10 days later, we are almost there in the organisation stakes.

Before it rained today, I  potted up some Parsley, Mint, Rosemary, Lemon and normal Thyme along with some Basil. It is important to me, to have fresh herbs not just to use but to add to the "feel" of the place. There is not vegie garden but there are little garden nooks, which are very peaceful. I am looking forward to trying to grow a few tomatoes, lettuce maybe some beans as well, I am just looking out for the best place for them.
I also baked my first batch of Anzac biccies today, the oven is a bit, well touchie, temperamental but we managed, it is fan forced and the fan sounds something similar to a single engine plane zooming through the kitchen, I am thinking it needs to be fixed as it made for a fairly noisy afternoon as I also made a good old fashioned Chrissy cake and the rattle and hum continued for a good 3 hours!
I  have just given it a brush with Brandy and the house smells lovely... the Christmas tree was also decorated today, it is starting to feel a just little like Christmas.

You did well to clear that lot! I'd have taken that bottle of brandy and hid in a corner somewhere! lol
