summer holiday

Just back from our summer holiday. We spent the last couple of weeks down in Havelock North at my family home, gearing up for my little brother's wedding. We spent the days outside enjoying the sun and working hard, gardening and pruning. So I wanted something to entertain a four year old. I decided to make Moo a swing so I chose a spot under the pepper tree at the end of the lawn, where our childhood treehouse once nestled.

It's a simple wood swing. I used a plank of wood, drilled two holes each end to thread the 9mm orange rope through and painted it red (with the leftover paint from the front door). 

I sadly didn't document the making of the swing, as I didn't have a camera so the only photo I have is from my phone.
