Catching Up

My camera seems to have taken its own little holiday over these school holidays, and so in turn blog posts have been missing in action. 

So after an Easter of branding,

we've enjoyed a full fortnight of non-plans, non-clock watching, not having to be anywhere but home.
There was some construction,

this table the first off Wallace's production line.

some fencing,

plenty of boot wearing,

some nature-loving,

 and a little wand wielding.

With our local show upon us this coming weekend, there's also been some dog-jump practise,

and a little weaner-wrangling, the kids intent on dragging some weaners around the show-ring.

Some wet days last week the perfect opportunity for some sewing, the girls all 'requiring' new shirts for the show.  Two down, one to go.


  1. Good on you making your girls show shirts. I look forward to seeing the photos.
    Wallace's table looks great. There'll be orders for dining room settings and bench seats next.

  2. I've missed you! Can't wait to see the skirts :) x

    1. Shirts, not skirts :) And they are beautiful btw - goodness, is there no end to your talent Fiona!

  3. There is always time for wand waving! Don't you just love not having a schedule or school lunches? The kids are much ore excited about returning to school than I am!

  4. Lovely relaxing photos Fiona, although the puppy looks like he/she's working hard :-). Your Wallace has done an amazing job on the table - good on him! Love your breed of cattle with their floppy ears. We are all so tired here - just 3 more days until the term is finished and it couldn't come fast enough. I second the call-out to see the shirts you make too. Mel x

  5. It sounds like you guys have been enjoying yourselves lately!

  6. Life is so much more simpler, more laid back when there is no schedule! Wallace did a wonderful job on his table. Kuddos to the children for bribing/coaxing the puppy over the wall!

  7. That looks like a lovely way to spend to holidays ... relaxed.

  8. OH GEEZ the pressure is on...we've got three super attractive poddies that might drag our kids around the show ring?! (thank heavens for small mercies, I don't think we have a led cattle section so we can just be content with the Pavillion entries!)

    what a great job Wallace did constructing a table, did he do it solo or with some help? whatever the case, I am not sure that I could build a table myself so what an accomplishment for a 10 year old!!

  9. Wallace taking after his Grandad with the building side of things! Love the first photo with the fresh brands!
