House and Garden *august*

Hi everyone!
My oh my how the time is flying! Where did all the hours go? Already September month and I haven't even written about our house and garden for August! Holy Moly....

Since last time, we have gotten a dog. It's very small, yellow, doesn't bark (but I was hoping it did), doesn't eat and is a bit "plasticy". It is a very good "guarden dog" keeping the door open and hold little messages when I am in the backyard.

Imagine after just one week in a new job, you have to go on holiday...tough life but that's been me lately.
Holiday was planned well before the job came my way so the little week of holiday was incorporated into the first bit of training.

This time, we went to Musket Cove Resort in Fiji located at the Malolo Leilei Island. We have been to Fiji about 10 years ago and loved it, so this time we picked another resort and loved it even more. After three hours on a plane, a few hours of waiting at an airport hotel (if we had known that the Denarau port was so nice we would have taken a taxi there to wait instead), 30 minutes on a bus and another hour on a ferry, we arrived Musket Cove Resort in darkness with a band playing guitars and singing, candles lit and the whole reception welcoming us by the beach.
We had a little sightseeing around the island on a buggie (think golf car and you are very close) and then we were shown our home for the next few days. A little house with living room, kitchen corner, bathroom and bedroom. Flower decorations were placed all over the place; on the bed, on top of towels and on all the tables. Even outside on the terrace table! Lovely.

Bula. Welcome.
