Absolute Bliss

WOW!!! Can it really be the 10th of January 2012 already???
The past 18 days since I last posted have been absolute bliss.... Loads of things have been happening, here's a brief run down - there was Xmas (of coarse), a gorgeous trip to Sunny Queensland for one of the best 6 day holidays we've EVER had, a delightful New Years Party on the gorgeous over flowing Darling River with a group of friends (both new and old which is always nice..), A visit to Nanny's place, a perfect pool party here on the farm for my little Millie who is now 3 - OMG!!!! And to top it all off we were blessed with a visit from some special friends this morning - they've travelled all the way from Victoria for a week away.

Also, in amongst the excitement we've been trapping goats like crazy (which is usual for this time of year) but with the scorching temps reaching well up and into the 40's for the past week (thank goodness today is a mild 32'C) the new Jumpoline (thanks Santa... *wink*), some bubble bath and a sprinkler come in very handy for cooling everybody down a little - and yes I mean EVERYBODY!!!

Thanks for all of the Xmas and New Year emails that have come through. A few have been wondering where I've been and if all is well - I promise, all is well here on the farm, a little chaotic at times but still very very well....

So................. HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY!!!!! Sorry it's 10 days late....
Here's hoping you bought 2012 in with a bang and that this year finds you taking a little more time out to appreciate the simpler things in life.....

  11. It's so nice to see summer pictures during the winter! LOL! We've had mild one here and REALLY warm...it was like summer for the last few weeks and 70 F the other day. Tonight it's 40 F and raining hard. I have a fire going.
    I'm so glad you got to get away for a holiday. You work so hard all the time. Those girls are just darling!
    You'd be proud of me...thanks to you and Aunt Purl...I have committed to knitting (already crochet) and for Christmas got myself both sets of the Hiya Hiya circular interchangeable needle sets. Around here we can only order needles from the internet or drive 3 hours so I figured I'd take the plunge! Now I can start multiple projects too....uh oh! So glad you and your family had a great Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you!

  12. Looks like lots of fun is happening at your place! Happy New Year to you and your family Jodie!
