Stacked Just in time !!

Zirrius and Zadi~Blanca......somewhere under here !!

Troublesome two-some .....

Bottoms Up !!.....Zirrius and Zadi~Blanca play fighting ...


Yesterday, I spent most of the afternoon...carting hay into the new wooden barn that we have been building !! this year.........so one side of the barn is now full of hay, as this year is the first year for stacking it was a bit of trial and error.....in the end I managed to get 36 bales in total in there. I only stacked two high as the tractor is at its maximum lift and sometimes....you struggle to get the third row off, I didn't want to risk it. I was busy till after dark.

Today it was another early start for me, to re arrange the other barn in order that I could bring in the remainder of the hay. I had another 24 bales to move, tonight we are forecast rain all night and a very unsettled week.......so I am pleased that I have managed to get that job done !

Dare I say it....I am nearly organised for the winter, I just have my delivery of straw for the winter to find a home for....and we are sorted.

Tonight the rain is lashing down, the boys are in the new extension....!! that we have been working on....I have a gate to fix, it is tied on for tonight....so tomorrow I intend to hang the gate, make a wind break to shelter the new part from the prevailing wind.....I'm waiting to hear if we can get the tipping trailer for next weeks job....and then my parents will be making their way back home.....for a rest !

The next time I see them will be Christmas time.....I'm hoping that this year will be a much milder winter, however I've heard lots of rumours already !

I just hope Im not going to be snowed in for 5 weeks this year....

I've heard similar things, not good when you are about to move into a caravan!

After all that work, you deserve a mild winter!

I love your first photo! There must be a caption for it: how about, " I'm sure I put it in here, you have a look" - or, "look! Australia!".
