After the storms of yesterday and last night, we escaped very luckily. The only damage is two fence panels gone from the garden. We have been very lucky compared to others who are without homes, power and worse.
Hubby was out early this morning with our neighbour in the queue to buy a couple of new panels. With the broken debris in our garden, 6yo has been helping Hubby this morning to clear up the mess, and she’s also been getting a sneaky lesson on how to be safe when breaking wood.
Hubby and 6yo worked as a team to hold and break between them, and then the hammer came out to finish the job. Hubby chuckled to himself as he got the hammer from the shed, and I asked him what he was chuckling at. His response? “I’m going to repeat my Dad’s words in a mo. I know I’m going to do it and I’m still going to say them” He told me. It really is true. You turn into your parents!
A lesson in what a claw hammer is, and how to use it safely has followed this morning, but 6yo is still giggling away and working hard with her Dad in the garden.
What a great way to end a storm! And now we have a secure fence again.
I’m linking this post up to #CountryKids this week.
Hope everyone is staying safe through the weather.
