David had his chainsaw out this month and cut down a Lacebark (which has made room for an almond tree) and a Pittosporum which was competing with one of the apple trees. He also took out Sauron's Plum Tree, as we have been calling it - look at those thorns. It didn't produce anything much and was literally a real pain to prune whenever it grew out in front of the dining room window. Just like Sauron, it'll probably grow back when we're not looking - but now it'll be easier to deal with, being much shorter (almost ground level).
It's also been funny hair-do season this week. Andrew decided he wanted to have his hair slicked back for a new look, so has been wetting it down then wearing a hat to hold it down while it dries. Doesn't stay down for long though.
And of course Eva joined in the fun and let Renee do her hair too
