Following on from the, 'Are you making your homes winter lockdown ready?' thread, we're getting quite fired up (pun intended) with ideas for a garden/patio/yard makeover.
DD messaged last night feeling down because their move to London last year was going to be a great opportunity for us to see more of them. Obviously Covid has scuppered that but like everyone else we have to make the best of it.
She thinks that short visits for an hour or two outside will be safer than overnight stays so we're 'getting our Hygge on' - not just indoors but out!
We've ordered a firepit and I'm thinking up 'outdoor kitchen' ideas. There's an IKEA butcher's block lurking somewhere in the garage and we enough outdoor tables and chairs to fill a pub garden although we'll obviously stick to the rule of 6!
During the summer DH's large fishing umbrellas turned out to be better than a gazebo for keeping the wind and rain at bay so they'll no doubt be earning their keep.
Anyone else thinking about outdoor entertaining during the cold winter months or will you be pulling up the drawbridge?
