Back on Deck

We obviously need to be a little more careful when and where our political discussions take place, after Sally stated this morning that she hopes Anna Bligh catches swine flu. While many of us do harbour similiar hopes, it possibly does little for the psyche of our four year old to be 'pointing the bone' at others.

On a more positive note we stumbled upon an exciting discovery this morning. One of our recipient cows disappeared at the end of last week, obviously hiding in the hills to calve. Unfortunately she was never to return, and even though we scoured the hills valiantly searching for her, it was all to no avail. So after cursing ourselves for not having them secured in a smaller closer paddock, we put her down as a 'missing-in-action', obviously died calving. A few days ago though I found her in another paddock, albeit solo, we believed the calf mustn't have survived the calving, but were happy that we had at least not lost the cow as well. But today, wonder of all wonders, I found her with her beautiful bonny baby bull calf. Haven't wiped the smile off my face all day.

Kids have made it back to school too, the horrors of yesterday's illness long forgotten. Be still oh mighty Fisher & Paykel 7.5 kg auto washer.

Interschool Sports Carnival tomorrow. Stay tuned for photos.
