Happy New Year!

Beach1 Christmas11 Christmas2


Here's to you and a celebratory new year, perhaps with time off, and family and good food and maybe sunshine and sand if you're in our part of the world. I wish all good things for you! *clink*

Thanks for dropping in here to visit, I appreciate your company enormously.

We're pretty excited about the new year over here, full of (slightly mental) farm plans and steadfast resolutions. 

Adam's parents gave us a beehive for Christmas (and a beekeeping course.)

Adam and I gave each other a dairy cow. 

It's going to be a fun ride this year. We've soaked up family and friends and the smell of pine Christmas trees and we're ready to rumble. 

I hope you've seen in the new year with a smile, if not, our agricultural fiascos may bring one to your face any minute. 

Happy new year, friends.

Happy New Year Fiona! I love love love your photos of fun πŸ™‚ It’s been very wet over here in NZ so we’ve had to forego our beach camping trip for some relaxing (sewing and knitting) time indoors at home. I’m looking forward to watching your ‘farmly’ antics unfold πŸ™‚ I grew up with house cows and milked them, they can be alot of fun…and amusement. Best of luck and good health to your family in 2012! Regards, MrsW @ Come Smell the Roses

Happy New Year! Looking forward to this year’s adventures. We’re taking a a few weeks off for some thermos drifting (perhaps accompanied by some of your slice of wednesdays) and planning a serious new boating adventure so we may have some nautical fiascos to share with you too!

You know what? DELICIOUS!!! Is that the way they were raised or the way they were cooked? I dunno. Were still eating them of course, and the next lot are 4 weeks old…
