One job I love and loathe

Hosing our yard takes an hour and a half every day. It can be frustrating because there’s so much we could do with that time but, on the other hand, you can use it as time to let your mind drift. I reckon it’s the equivalent of a city commuter’s traffic jam. It’s made so much more fun though, when you have help like this.

Making hosing fun

One day, we will get a hydrant wash, which gushes out large volumes of water at low pressure and do the job in five to 10 minutes. Maybe Santa will find a way to fit one in his sack!

    Hi Marion,
    Zoe must be a pretty obedient kid if you trust her with such a big hose! I have a daughter about the same age, and we get soaked every time she tries to help water the potted plants at home.
    Keep up the good work 🙂
