Simple Country Life....

It's always busy round here this time of year as we prepare for the long hot Summer...

There's dam fences to mend, stick piles to burn, goats to muster, garden beds to prep, veggies to plant, sheep to shear, more fences to build (and mend), fence lines to clear and if you're one of my girls, pockets to fill...

Today, while I mended holes in old fences my girls helped out in other ways....

They piled up sticks, collected flowers for drying and filled their pockets full of rocks - eager to take home for washing and painting, these always make the perfect gifts.

We really do love our Simple Country Life*!!!*


  1. Beautiful photos of your girls. Country Life is the best that's for sure. x

  2. The best place to raise children is the country. Their life is not cluttered with all the craziness of city life. Pockets full of rocks is good. It's a good simple life and can't be beat.

  3. Rock collecting looks quite painful though!

  4. oh miss MILLIE what a beautiful smile, u made my heart melt :)

    Love seeing children enjoying themselves, and there is no better place than the country, red dirt and all!

  9. Your kids are so cute. Um, can I just ask... what laundry detergent to you use???

  11. Perfect post and perfect photos of your lovely little style nothing beats it :-)

  12. The best place to increase kids is the nation. Their lifestyle is not messy with all the mayhem of town lifestyle. Pouches complete of stones is excellent. It's a excellent simple lifestyle and can't be defeat.Gold On Runescape
