Monday 30 October 2006,
This is my darling husband Marcus and I on our wedding day. This Sunday 5 November will be our 1st wedding anniversary and I have had the most amazing year. I know that times get hard and we won't always agree but so far it has been fun and wonderful. Now that we are expecting our 1st baby things are going to be a little different but still it is a very exciting time ahead and I cannot imagine my life being any different.

Wednesday 25 October 2006

Things are very busy at home at the moment. Hubby(Marcus) and his dad have been busy sorting up cattle so that we can get rid of some before the prices at the market fall even further. Luckily we have alot of lovely breeding cows that we can keep and look after for when it finally rains and the prices go up again. We have lots of sheep and cattle heading off to market like every other farming family. No-one can afford to feed them all at the moment. We have 2 types of cattle. Black Angus and Short Horns. Marcus loves the Short Horns the best and I have to agree with him. They have so much character in their red an white markings and the calves are just the cutest things ever. I will have some photo's to post real soon. It's always a pity that they have to grow up but even the older Short Horns are quite nice looking.

I started sewing a skirt on Friday and should finish it off tomorrow. It's the first time I have used my overlocker in about 2 years and I was worried that I might stuff it up but it worked out pretty good. It is a really simple A-line draw string skirt to help accommodate my growing stomach but the fabric is really summery and colourful so it will be great.

It has just rained for about 5 mins, not really very substantial but it may settle the dust for a while.
Over and out.

Thursday 19 October 2006
Here goes, my first ever blog.

Thank you to tigerfilly for helping me get started.

A bit about me to start with. 32 years old living on a farm that my husband runs with his father, it is in the Ournie valley which is right near the Murray river and about 1 1/2 hours from Thredbo. It really is a little slice of heaven down here to be able to wake up the the birds in the trees and the cows mooing (except when it's calf weaning time it's a bit noisy). I will post some photo's when I figure out how to.

My hubby Marcus and I were married on 5 November 2005 and went on our honeymoon on 10 June 2006 for 5 1/2 weeks to Canada where we had an absolute ball. We had planned on starting to try having babies while we were away and came home to find out that we were successful on the 1st go. I know that we are very blessed to be this lucky but I still felt very shocked for about the 1st 3 months.

So now I am 16 1/2 weeks and feeling really good. I guess I have been lucky. I only had 2 bad days in the whole time. I felt kind of blah for 14 weeks but really pretty lucky. I have been trying to get down to some serious sewing so that I have some maternity wear for the months to come and also eventually I want to make some baby clothes but so far I have trouble just getting my housework done cause the weather is too nice and I don't want to be inside but I guess I will have to get "nesting" before too long or I will be too fat to do anything. I will have to set aside all my stitching and patchwork projects for the moment too.

Enough for the 1st time. Hope this works o.k.
