It's been a busy couple of weeks so far in 2011. We've been sorting up lambs, weighing, drafting, drenching and dagging them, and yesterday brought all the ewes home to the yards and sorted them up into different mobs. Hot and smelly work, I'm glad we're finished in the yards for a week or so. Today we are having some cousins of my husbands arriving to visit. They are from the US and haven't visited NZ for about 40 years(She was about 8 and my husband was 2!) So we're looking forward to meeting them and spending some time together.
Later this week we are off camping with the kids for a few days. The holidays have flown by as usual, back to school in a couple of weeks. :-( Hopefully there will be some stitching time for Mum while we're away. :-)
I'm not doing too bad on my January plans - Raewyns SRTB piece should hopefully be with Janis now, and I have finished up the stitcheries for another GJ block, just need to get it pieced now, and one little cross stitch ornie is finished. Will get some photos when we get home again.
And because a picture makes a post, here are this seasons pet lambs, taken just before Christmas. Charlie on the left and Joanie on the right. These girls are a Texel/Romney cross. They are still pretty friendly even now we aren't bottle feeding them, and love coming up so you can give them a good pat.
My thoughts have been very much with those suffering from flooding in Australia over the last couple of weeks. What I've seen on TV here looked dreadful, so I hope life can begin to return to normal soon.
Till next time, take care .................Nicky
