    Winter on the Farm

    The rains have been in for the bigger part of the last month… Not the heavy deluges that are much needed around the country to fill tank and dams, but the mizzley rain (mist crossed with drizzle) that keeps you indoors, and turns everything to slush or mould… 😐 We have managed to get two new

  • 2020 ridiculousness

    Annnnnd here we are at 2020 – just like that! Even though its barely a month since our last update – we had it pointed out to us in no uncertain terms, that we’ve been a bit slack on the blog of late. We might also note here, that this observation was made by someone who has missed putting out their own Christmas Family Newsletter, for the last couple of years though!!! 🙄😁 Soooo – without further ado, here is a brief rundown of what we have been upto in the last month… (It may be brief!)

  • Hot & Sweaty

    … Sure enough – the heat has come in, and the Farm is getting drier by the minute… And yep – we’re alllll hot & sweaty!! We know that there should be a decent bit of rain on our horizon in the near future, which will bring our little piece of Paradise back to life in no time at all – but

  • October already!

    October Already

    . We’ve had a bit of rain this week! We awoke in the early hours of Saturday morning to the very distant rolls of thunder, and after dozing for a while, the lightning and rain followed, and a lovely unexpected summer storm passed through. On waking on Saturday morning,
