Our new outdoor area

I started this post last night on my ipad through Blogsy, BUT when I went to add the photos it just wouldn't work properly...aaahhh!!  This had been my second attempt with blogsy but I don't seem to get on real well with it....so this post is coming to you from my normal desktop computer where I spend most of my days!!

Last Christmas we demolished our pergola area in preparation for work to commence on a much larger under cover outdoor space. It took a few months after that (5 in fact!) before the structure finally started.

Once it did start, it was a continual procession of tradies and all was finally competed about 6 weeks ago. Watching all our planning come into fruition has been exciting.  We have been enjoying the space so much, it's great to have an outdoor area again.

Here are a couple of before shots.


And here is what it's like now! Having the blinds make it such a protected area if the weather turns bad or is a bit windy. I LOVE IT!!!

Our son Daniel built the walls and rendered them and also built the outdoor bbq area. I am often found after work hours sitting in a tub chair with my feet up, having a cuppa or cold bevvy, reading, checkout things on my ipad, or chilling with family and friends! 

We will be enjoying Christmas at our place this year with some of my family.

Enjoy your day !

That is a fantastic new space, I bet it gets used heaps!

Hey, with Blogsy - they are having issues which hopefully will be fixed in their next update. They emailed me after I whinged about it on my blog!

Photos will not work out of your camera roll. You need to go into your photos on your iPad, select the picture then Save Image. This will put the pic in your Photo Stream and Blogsy will allow you to use the pic then. Hopefully they will fix these bugs soon.

Blogsy is currently crashing for me this morning!

Hello Annette,

Sorry for interrupting you sitting out in your lovely area! The difference is amazing. Good luck with the ipad blogging, haven't even attempted that. I see lots of people having trouble with it. Me I love the old computer, I can sit and type.
Have a lovely weekend.

Happy days.
Bev.
