Hello there, Krankie, glad to have another aussie on here to chip in. This will be my last post for a while, we leave on the first leg of our trip tomorrow. Only going to Winton overnight, will meet up with the family there to see the little fella. Then we're headed to Darwin, leaving our car at Elders, and flying to Broome. (Did I tell you all this before, sorry if I did, too lazy to go back and look!) Mum is not coming out of hospital in the near future but, if she should, the family down there to ready for her. Will go down as soon as I get back.
I think I've bought a new pony mare - we don't need any more ponies - but she's so lovely I couldnt resist. Oh dear. She wasnt for sale but the ppl seemed receptive to me buying her, havent worked out a price yet. I'll break her into harness if I can, as well as the kids riding her, she's only 2. I don't need any "projects" to work on, for goodness sake, I have plenty of painting commissions harrassing me, what am I thinking! Havent floated the past hubby yet but I know it wont be met with enthusiasm, just a lot of eyerolling and "what do you want that for?"
Still quite wet here, another fog this morning. The rain has done a lot of damage to the mitchell and flinders grass, but should bring enough herbage to compensate. Time will tell. At least our main body of grass still had green through it - folk, who had grass that was hayed off, now have thousands of acres of black to look out on. Any green pick will be slow coming.
Mitchell grass doesnt respond under about 30 degrees and it wont be that again for months. Our waterholes are full again so that's a great thing in June.
Best wishes to everyone, keep safe, and I'll be back in a few weeks!
