Aunty again and fencing update..........

Here are some pics from the fencing yesterday..........since we still had a log burning we decided to have a sausage in bread BBQ down the paddock..........it wasn't too bad a day...........

love looking into fires..........

dinner wasn't done and this was rumbling behind us.............it wasn't very far off but thankfully missed us............

showery clouds scattered around all arvo.................we got back to the house about 4pm and the temps were heading down.............it was a pretty easy day for me as I was doing lots of VERY VERY SLOW driving laying out posts and then when we were driving them in.............BORING.........but the easiest job...........the iron posts are all in and one wire is strained...........

got this beautiful HUGE rainbow just as we finished...........what a great ending...........the kids were busted but having the best fun riding the 4 wheel motorbike up and down the fence and stoking the fires...........

today was supposed to be cattle work but it was damp this morning.........so we called that job off......and today has been awful day weather wise..........so we didn't even go to the fence............sleety shows scatting around and freezing cold so I have spent the day home bumming around......

...Fairy girl finished her Xmas decorations for a swap with 3 other little sewing girls...........more about that next week when they receive there parcels

.......the kids made me some fruit salad this morning...........they tried to present it well............except it was on my crappy biscuit tray.....lol...............but it is the thought that counts............even the tomatoes????.........

but all day we have been waiting for a phone call and finally late this arvo I got the call.............I have another niece...............no name - all well...............yippee...........Aunty Chookyblue again............

Take care til next time Aunty Chookyblue..........

PS got another block done of the FQS BOM 1/2 way thru the blocks now
