Outloading

Tuesday, 28 April 2009 by

My hubby has been busy over the road at the CBH bin’s outloading last years grain. So busy that he couldn’t stop for lunch so we ran over some hot toasties and I took this pic of him working hard on the new Volvo loader inside the large Q type bin. He has been filling road trains all week and today they were loading the train. He did a good 7-hour stint the other day without a break and gets the dreaded loader arm/sore shoulder. (I’m at home supposed to be painting the house … but lacking enthusiasm!

No rusty bit of junk

Thursday, 05 March 2009 by

Does this old girl still go…for sure! This post hole digger belongs to my uncle and we borrowed it to do all our post holes for our fence around the house. Beats doing them by hand. It’s a tow start job, and you need to put air in the tyres and fill it up with oil, but she still runs. They don’t make them like that anymore.

The best fed chooks

Wednesday, 04 March 2009 by

They certainly are! I get beautiful deep yellow eggs full of goodness. I have five chooks and four young chicks, which have grown up so fast. They live in the enclosure with our fruit trees and they ate all my grapes this year so I will have to be on the ball next year and get in first. This is only the second year for all the fruit trees and they are going great guns (they should be – some of the tractor tyres they are growing in are worth thousands … one is near new but has a hole – what a waste of money!).

Filling floods

Friday, 20 February 2009 by

One good thing from the floods is that it filled up a small lake. So there has been plenty of skiing and fun for all. But everyday it gets lower and saltier again. This is another spot we found for the kids. An old gravel pit that had filled up with water. Kept the kids very busy on the hot days.

December floods

Friday, 20 February 2009 by

Yep, right in the middle of harvest we had floods. Above, this looking up towards town. You can see my dad’s two trucks parked up on the left. We were having our main road redone by the shire and they were only days away from putting down the bitumen, then along came the rain and washed it all away. Below is my Uncle Mocka’s farm. We were heading towards the middle of his paddock where his gully was running, full of floodwater. This was as close as we could get! Not good for the farmers who still had harvesting to do. It took weeks before they could even drive on their paddocks.

Coasting along

Friday, 20 February 2009 by

Just before school went back we managed to spend a week down on the coast at Hopetoun where we have a permanent van. Here is my Dad and brother Chad trying to catch some fish while we went swimming. My brother and his wife had come over from Albury for Christmas. My brother is in the army so I don’t get to see much of them, especially my two gorgeous nephews Trent and Jackson. So it was nice to spend some quality time together and for the cousins to get to know each other again.
