… and sunny B-) are you jealous? I hear it’s been snowing in London. Console yourselves with the thought that there’s no decent coffee for 300km.

Today so far, I have had breakfast (home grown eggs, and locally produced jam and bread from the farmer’s market) fed the chooks, collected eggs, admired the goats, and helped put dinner in the crockpot.

Later Margie and I will hang out while Mum takes Alan to see the orthopaedic surgeon in the next town. I had planned girly movies and knitting - Margie says however that we may be shifting pigs from the paddock to the yards. Hmmm.

Tomorrow most of the breeding sows will be going, leaving just a couple with new litters and some weaners in one shed (the young pigs being fattened up). This will take a great deal of pressure off as there is a lot of work in feeding pigs scattered all over the farm every day.

Tomorrow M and I are going to Melbourne to get a coffee, and maybe do some shopping. We’re staying a couple of days with Cherie and baby Chloe, and a couple of days with my brother Shannon. Back on Saturday, and it will only be one more week then until I come home!

I’m missing you all heaps - I pop by here to read comments occasionally but can’t really get to reading other people’s blogs much or get onto Ravelry at all. Cherie and Shannon both have broadband however - so I will do some catching up this week :-D and upload some photos!

Take care, xx

    I do so enjoy reading about your life at home. It makes me long for a similar place to live! It sounds as though you’re busy but not in a frantic way. It’s good news about how well Allan is doing! Take care, and keep enjoying everything!

    Don’t think you can escape the snow, there’ll probably be some when you come back! May’s always been a bad month here:-)

    Late as usual to add my comment. I too missing you and your cheery energy. Shame pigs dont have fleeces but perhaps just as well. Keep spinning and love to your Mum and support.

    Hi Diane

    I got back to Blighty yesterday and am back to work today. Missed your company on the plane home - but at least I had an aisle seat!

    See you soon

    Hi Sweetie, thinking of you and wishing I was feeding chooks and weaners downunder instead of pursuing print sales in rainy London. Lots of knitting/spinning/crochet activity here, though: spinners descending on I Knit London next saturday, so I’m hoping to join them. Hope all is well. Missing you! Alix xx
