Flippant Friday…. It is going to be Busy!


Easter weekend and with two days of additional public holidays it should mean time for some rest and relaxation…… but with the weather forecast predicting sunshine and warmer than usual temperatures, there will be no excuses* not to get out into the garden and make a start on tidying up after the winter….. So I guess its going to be busy!

* That is unless you have already made your holiday escape  🙂
