Well it’s sure been a while, I wasn’t intending to have a blog break but due to losing my internet connection, the school holidays and The Husband being off work since November, I just haven’t had any opportunities to blog!
Now the house is quiet with 3 out of the 4 munchkins back at school and The Husband returning to work and the internet is actually connecting for more than 4 seconds at a time, I am taking the chance to stick my head in and say hi.
A lot seems to have happened to you all over the last 3 months and I have heaps to catch up on, so apologies if I don’t get to comment as much as I would like.
We have been busy here too, 2 of the boys had birthdays, we hosted the Christmas Eve celebrations (hubby's family are European) have been to the beach and done a stack of work in the garden.
December also saw our first births on the farm!
We hatched 9 little Muscovy Ducklings, but unfortunately due to a rogue bird of prey we were only left with 3... We are now organising netting to cover the top before the next clutch hatch.
Sadly we also had to say goodbye to our faithful Border Collie 'Bowie' in January. I got Bowie when I was 15 as an 8 week old pup and found out when he was just 6months old that he had an incurable disease and would be unlikely to see his 2nd Birthday.
But with the help of a great vet, expensive drugs and a whole lotta love Bowie had a very happy long life. He passed away in his sleep shortly after his 12th birthday.
I guess we will see what this year brings us, but I am hoping for a happy one for the family, void of any unplanned kidney operations or health issues in general! I have heaps of plans for the garden, and a hopefully 2012 will see the start of some inside renovations too!
Well, Happy Christmas, New Year and all of that to everyone and I look forward to reading about what’s happening in your worlds.
