I am amazed by how focused and inspired I feel coming out of these school holidays. The last three weeks have seen so much knitting, crocheting and reading AS WELL as quality time spent with the boys. I am slightly gobsmacked. I do enjoy school holidays, I do. It's just that usually a huge amount of work goes into keeping every one happy (which of course is not always a possibility) whereas this time, we have all hit the relax button together and been on the same wave length. I even managed to crochet some more Floss Bunnies for my friend Shar while watching the boys play cricket together (which is an incredible thing to happen as we are not particularly sporty).
I love getting them ready to go. Putting the little envelopes (containing their life stories - which are very short because let's face it, their lives are very short) around their neck and straightening their ears, plumping their bellies, searching for whiskers and remembering they don't have any....
And then of course taking the obligatory photo of them swimming in clean clothes.
Miracle of all miracles, we went away for a couple of nights to the grandparent's bach (holiday house) and wait for this..... JONNO CAME!!!! From the end of June when calving begins until almost November, it's virtually impossible for Jonno to leave the farm. Thanks to my parents in-laws' insistence and farmy help, he managed to come with us. AND he is even having most of this weekend off.
The boys have been sent off to buy take-aways as the fridge seems to have developed a strange condition where all of the vegetables have turned yellow and sort of fluffy while we have been away. None of us are willing to eat anything that dwells in there.
Have a lovely weekend.
Lots of love,
