Okay I'm in!
It's summer here and it's our busy time on the farm, picking fruit or packing it everyday (we grow plums, eleven different varieties, we pick from Jan to mid March) DH is busy with that. I'm busy with our other business, working on the farm whenever I can.
DS who is twelve next week is happily driving the tractor, forklift, ute, and truck when needed. He keeps a time book and we pay him accordingly. We'll miss him when school goes back in two weeks.
DD is helping around the house and is currently super excited because the riding school owner has let us borrow a pony for the next two weeks.
Our pony, Rose, is at the riding school getting some training and DD can't ride her yet. So we have Little Ted, a Shetland pony, at our place for a bit.
He's a gorgeous boy, about twenty years old and very docile and sweet. A bit stubborn though! But that's good practice for DD. We have about eight weeks until our local agricultural show where DD and Ted will be competing in the beginner classes.
Had a small bush fire on Sunday about 5km away. Burnt about ten acres of grass and some small patches of trees. The local volunteers (including DH) put it out before it got out of hand.
So that's it for me, what's everyone else doing?
