I think the fact that we were really tired after having the grand children for 10 days contributed to that.
Before we left Brian built a new water trough for the poultry. It was a 6inch diameter pvc pipe sealed off on the ends with a small float installed.Brian just cut a slot for them to drink from. The water pod automatically keeps it topped up. It just means that we now have a back up water supply in the main yard for when we are away just in case one source fails.
We headed off to Wollongong to take the grand kids home, their Mum and Dad had been working the 10 days the kids were at the farm and had then headed to Melbourne to the tennis.
The kids went back to their normal routines of OOSH and daycare and we had a few hours each day to rest and recuperate.
We did some shopping, ate out a bit, including a nice seafood lunch we shared one day,
After our daughter and son in law returned home we said our goodbyes and headed to Sydney.
In Sydney we headed to our bottle and jar supplier Plasdene , that I use for my preserving and stocked up on sauce bottles, jelly jars and pickles/jam jars.
Every day on the deck at my sister's house a myriad of birds come to visit and sometimes receive a small tidbit of food.
There were striking King Parrots and Scaley Breast Parrots,
She looked stunning as her dad escorted her to the ceremony,
The next day we had a relaxing day on the waterfront,
The next day we headed back to the farm.
Brian had purchased a new breathable bee suit in Newcastle( he had seen one the same at my sister's place and decided it was for him)
Rob our bee helper came and brought us some more honey that he had extracted from our hives, this is just a small portion of what we get from them.
Brian has been busy with a few caravan repairs since we come home, our baby is an old girl and we regularly have to do a few bits to keep her going.
This time he had a hinge on a cupboard door and the plywood base under a mattress needed re-enforcing as well.
We really are "The Lucky Country.!!!
Please take care and be good to each other,
Jane and Brian.
