Aug 17, 2019 - Just another day on the farm

A lovely day of sunshine to get outside and enjoy the farm. The whips came out and even Grandad decided to have a go. Didn't last long - once he clonked himself on the head he gave up. Grandad fixed Ella's chair swing which had fallen out of the tree after the rope snapped. The ducks were having a great time eating up all the bugs after the rain. The cows had to be rounded up as 3 of them are going to market this week. It took a bit of doing but they got there eventually. I'm not sure the rounder uppers would be any good on a...

Aug 15, 2019 - A great birthday

What a great day. We awoke to lovely sunshine and the temperature even reached 17 deg for a short time. We had High Tea at the Longwarry Primary School.Levi's class were the cooks and waiters for the day. It was delicious and very well done. All the kids did a fantastic job of serving the food and asking everyone what they would like to drink. Then we went to the pub for dinner - Chicken Parma for me, of course, which was delicious. Even had candles to blow out on the chocolate mud cake. The kids were very well behaved...

Aug 10, 2019 - It's all go

We haven't stopped since we arrived. Chiropractor, dentist, playing with kids and visiting. This pic is the kids with the animals I crocheted for them - the girls have hippos and Levi has a dragon. They were very impressed with them. Grandad helped Winta to paint the suncatcher. Today we spent the day at Science works. They are tired kids and we are tired grandparents. A great time was had by all. Its a great place to take kids as they can touch everything and learn how lots of things work. WE've had quite a lot of rain over the last...

Aug 6, 2019 - London to Melbourne via Perth

After a half hour delay due to someone not turning up for the flight so their luggage had to be removed form the hold, then the pilot having to negotiate a new departure appointment, we finally joined the queue at Heathrow and took off.. It was a good flight and we were quite happy with the 16 3/4 hour flight. With an hour and a half stop in Perth then on our way again landing in Melbourne 15 minutes early, our bags came out first and we were straight out of the airport in no time. A good nights sleep and we surprised the...

Jan 13, 2019 - Just another day on the farm

Today was drenching, tagging and the 2 new male babies, Fred & George had their private parts rubber banded!!! The kids all tagged along, either just watching or helping with the gates and calming down the babies. Ella was a very good help The very fat pregnant cow just managed to squeeze through the race. It was very,very windy today, and we had a bit of a rough time taking down the taj mahal and packing it all away, but it all ended well in a neat and tidy package.

Jan 12, 2019 - Everything including the kitchen sink!

The new camper came home this morning. Sarah & Ben have been saving up/ paying it off for the last 6 months. So we all had a good gander while they put it up. The kids gave a helping hand too. Ella helped to put knots into the tie ropes with some instructions from Grandad. It's a fabulous camper with tons of room and should see them well into the future. In the afternoon we had a visit from Joseph & Ana & their son, Noel, and Joseph's parents. It was a beautiful day and Noel had a great time on the farm running around with the...

Jan 11, 2019 - Gold ?

We took the kids to Walhalla the old gold mining town, today. We had a train ride - 20 minute ride to the Thomson Station, a 20 minute stop while they shunt the engine around and then the ride back to Walhalla. Going over very rickety bridges had them a bit worried, but we all enjoyed the trip. Then we stopped at the river on the way back to let them try out their new gold pans which they got for Christmas. Sorry to say we didn't come home any richer, but they had some fun and enjoyed splashing around in the river as it was a hot...

Jan 10, 2019 - A fun day

Tuesday saw me with an unexpected 2 and a half hours in the dentist chair having pre crown work done on 2 teeth. Not happy Jan!!!!! $3000 later and my jaw felt like it was never going to close again! Then I have to return next Tuesday for the crowns to be fitted. On a much brighter note today we discovered the Seville Water Park. The kids had an absolutely fabulous time running in and out of the water spouts. It's an old swimming pool that has been adapted and is a great place - it's even free. A nice park surrounds it with lots of...

Jan 5, 2019 - Merry Christmas Part 2

Yesterday the temperature made 42.5, so the day was spent inside until the cool change began around 5pm when it dropped 20deg in an hour and a half making it much more comfortable. We kept the kids occupied by playing games they gotfor Christmas like scrabble and operation. Lots of fun. Sarah organised for us to have another Christmas Dinner and gift opening today. We had a fantastic day and the kids were very excited again. We had these T shirts made for them which read : - 1. I'm the oldest child I make the rules, 2, I'm the middle...

Jan 3, 2019 - Excited Grandchildren

We encountered quite a few specimens of road kill on our trip from Lake Tabourie to Bunyip - wallaby, wombat, a 2 1/2foot goanna, ring tail possum and a magpie. Makes the journey a bit more interesting!!!! We surprised the grandies and it was lovely to see the looks on their faces. We've had a great day with them all and spent most of it outside amongst the chooks and ducks. Tomorrow the temperature is predicted to be 42 deg so I think we'll be spending it inside with the air conditioner on.

The big boy is 5 today and so proud of himself telling everyone that he is 5. He loves anything to do with tractors and machinery so we found him a great book and also a subscription to The Old Machinery magazine. His parents got him this fabulous remote control digger thingy. And chocolate mud cake with M & M's was the best bit....
