My Big Girl is Home
The three youngsters and I drove in after school Wednesday afternoon to collect her. And a few groceries. Having reached the northern outskirts of town headed in a homeward direction, she remembered she'd left her rowing gear behind. We re-crossed the bridge while I sighed audibly and she apologised profusely.
We got home late and ate chinese on the floor of the lounge room in front of the heater. Mongolian Lamb makes everything better.
We've been sneaking in a little cattle work in between baking cakes, boiling corned beef and slicing fillet steak in preparation for a P & C catering job at a local clearing sale this Saturday. Catering for 600 to 1000 people is a fairly big job for our little crew.
Sarah has a rowing regatta in town, Dad will drop her off on his way to Bottle Tree, and we'll all head in to see her compete in the singles on Sunday. Exciting times.
