I swore that I would not have heaps of pink for Isla. I was wrong, she is adorable in pink and pastels – what was I thinking. Not sure that my motherly hormones have kicked in or that I have just accepted that I have a cute little girl who seems to have plenty of pink in her wardrobe. Last week I had to buy a few extra outfits to get us to the ’00’ mark and yes I bought light pink long sleeved numbers. Am I going mad?
My hats go off to all the folk who live in rural Australia who have only tank water to do their washing. My goodness kids can make a right mess. With three of us now in the house it seems that we are washing every other day. The tank level is going down, though I hope that we get some steady rain this year to keep them from running dry.
Roy installed our brand new washing line the week she was born so we could handle the new washing load size. Its much better than using our fold out clothes dryer thing and our chairs on the verandah to dry everything. I love anything that helps to make our lives easier and a simple clothes line did the trick for me.
How often do you do the laundry? I am now doing a load every two days.
Last week Roy and I were lucky enough to spot an echidna on our farm. The little fella was fleeing from our chooks and hid himself in a pile of rocks near our chookpen until the safety of night came so he could make his escape. We are one of the few properties who don’t have dogs so we get a lot of wildlife coming through.
