catching up.........

Now where was I ...............heading to the markets...............yes well they were great markets.............plus a few special orders which is wonderful........

was having a lovely afternoon after the markets (it was pretty warm in the morning) enjoyed lunch with some family.........casually headed home thought "great a nice quite arvo" (home phone it is "out" again) So i was sitting out in the garden in the perfect spot where you can get mobile reception trying to avoid the "ant hightway" just near my feet and reporting the home phone out (which take 10 MINUTES - great service - NOT) when dh rings the mobile and asks do you want to go and pick up a part - can't really say no so DRAG the kids out of the pool and head off for a nice drive...............4 hours later arrive home with 2 kids asleep at 10pm - boy were they going to be "foul" on Sunday..............He told me the silos looked great in town under lights...............here the best he could do with his mobile

Also the silos did another record the other day................in a 23 hour period they received 19,300 tonnes of wheat. Last year the total harvest for the area was 33,000 tonnes.............pretty amazing...........

Sunday I had plans for a nice quite day and the kids were not tooo bad.............but my neighrbour came down just before lunch and we enjoyed some wine and nibbles then coffee and some chocolate all the way from Finland (she LOVES my blog friends) and the day was totally written off.............it was cloudy and we had no idea of the time but we chatted and had a good catch up..............we have not had a day like this for ages...............
