back to reality........

wow I survived.................for the last 2.5 weeks I have had a constant stream of visitors........
...........some of those stayed the whole time (yes we are speaking and they are more then welcome to come back again)...........
It has been a great holiday time.............the 2nd week got even more busier with shearing etc and them more sheep work on the weekend..........my girlfriend on the weekend made a statement when she came here many years ago.........the background story is we had to go to pick up some hay at a neighbours - "oh i'm not into manual labor"...............lol............so funny cause if the work is on here now days she is in the thick of it............the joke continues......
The cooking is always constant with so many in the house.............
Made these Milo biscuits - Recipe here thanks Lise...........
Yet again more scones.............I always make them the morning they leave.............(i'll try and get a post up on making scones very soon..........)
someone amused themselves lining up bottles while they were here over easter..........not going to incriminate myself and say how many I added to the collection but Good Friday sure was good.............
me playing games here............finally the girls are back into laying eggs...........
Hope you've had time to spend with friends................I am so lucky to have lovely friends...........
Catch you later..............

  2. I agree it's nice to have friends stay and spend time together, but sometimes I feel quite relieved when they have gone and I can get back into my usual routine, so I encourage my friends to stay a short time only.
