Win some, Lose some!

Early Saturday morning I heard a commotion by our door, so I checked outside by the chook ‘house’ to find something rustling around with the chickens’ laying box paper. A little black thing ran away, and I was sure it had taken a chook. In the morning, the headless chook lay helplessly by its laying […]

Georgia wins Pet Parade at Middleton Fair

On Saturday we went to the Middleton Country Fair. It was a superb day! We saw animals, visited lots of stalls of homemade crafts and produce and Georgia took Lucy in the pet parade and they won! Georgia won a scarecrow badge and some lollies because she had the cutest pet – and quite possibly […]

A day in the forest

On Friday I felt rather low, being rather claustrophobic and lonely. Monte, being the great man he is, would not put up with my crap, and insisted that we all took a walk into the forest to look for the creek. I agreed, not reluctantly, and I felt so much better afterwards that I wanted […]

Animal Farm

We have names for everything now. This is how […]

Arriving at Fangorn Farm

Possibly the best picture I have ever taken. Matthew is a real country feller in his overalls, with his trusty companion d’Artagnan. When we arrived at the property, the first thing we did was walk the top perimeter. That’s everybody, including the cat. It was Monte’s birthday the day we arrived. We celebrated midnight with […]

Finally an Update!

Ok, so we’re here in Tasmania. We don’t have internet at home yet. Actually, we have the internet, but the internet doesn’t support Mac OS10.5 yet, so poo to Telstra. We’re all sitting in the local online centre, which is very flash. Georgia is playing games and Matthew is feeding a baby dolly with a […]
