Everyone loves a holiday. July is a bit like the calm before the storm for us! The ewes are heavily pregnant and are enjoying life before their lambs arrive.
George (our ram) was so busy enjoying his job that we had to force him to have his holiday too!
So at the moment it’s just daily walks through the paddock, checking that the sheep are all happy. Some days it feels very much like being the pied piper with the line up of pets that follow me around!
Over the long weekend, I was lucky enough to have my whole family to stay with us, and yes, my husband loves it too!
I am one of four in my family, and we have eight kids between us all, and grandies to boot! What fun, noise and mud!
These days, when life seems to go by like a speeding bullet, I really treasure the time to eat, drink, dance and laugh, with my brother and sisters. Not to mention how amazing it is to see all the cuzzies go bush, armed with chips, a roll of toilet paper and their trusty dogs.
With so many hungry mouths to feed, cooking is a huge part of our time. This year on the menu, the highlight was the herb crumbed lamb cutlets. The meat from our lambs is a very fine texture, packed with lots of taste. The best bit is seeing how much they are enjoyed!
It's that time again, for the girls to head into the shed for a haircut.
We've kept some of the black and grey wool separate, in the aim of getting it spun. I've already asked my friends mum to get her knitting needles ready!! Exciting!
