Ben and Hugo had a lovely time with Honda and Penny Penny yesterday. We can’t believe how quiet the hens are. They didn’t seem to mind two not so gentle little boys playing with them.
I was reading the paper today and thought this comment summed up my opinion of today’s Federal Election. It went something like this – ‘This has been the most disappointing election campaign I have encountered in my adult life. It is like choosing between two really bad husbands in an arranged marriage.’
While researching Tee Pee’s I fell in love with this one using Riley Blake’s Wheels fabric range and we just had to have it. It is from Little Bird Boutique an amazing Esty shop. Fran the owner is the most amazing fabric artist. She sources only the very best of fabrics and has an amazing range of children’s essentials. Ben has fallen in love with his Tee Pee. It has been a HUGE hit!!
I was cooking dinner this week thinking how organised I was for a change when I thought Ben seemed a little bit toooo quiet. I walked down the hall to discover Ben washing his hands. There was water up the wall, on the floor and the addition of the toilet roll added for lots more fun. Ben was having the best time ever! Oh yeah, he lost his pants along the way. They got wet so he took them off!
Our move to the outskirts of Ipswich has brought back memories for Andrew of his country roots. Just before his birthday he mentioned to me that he had always wanted a stock whip. I purchased one for him for his birthday. When at the Ipswich Town and Country Centre, the sales attendant asked me what we intended to use the stock whip for. ‘Oh…. oh…… well we won’t be riding with it’ was my response while in my head picturing Andrew riding swinging his whip shouting ‘Ride like the wind Bulls Eye’. I am sure I must have had a huge smirk on my face. The sales attendant took a number of whips off the hooks, swung them strangely up the shop aisle before saying, ‘Yep this is the one, this will be great to crack around the horses and cattle but not to ride with’. So I nodded agreeing but thinking ‘yep sure thing, that’s exactly what we need for all the horses and cattle on our one acre’. I didn’t dare inform the sales attendant that we wanted it just to crack in the yard for fun and hang on the wall and look pretty!!
Andrew got a chance to break in the whip today…. I had to laugh. I walked out the back and there is Andrew sitting on the saw horse cracking the whip – hilarious!! He mentioned tonight that he has a sore shoulder – even more hilarious!!! Love you honey xoxo
