Although its been quiet on this little blog of mine, life hasn't been.

In amongst a heap of health appointments to drive to and from.
We've gained 5 more lambs to join Buddy.

We have a total of three from our own flock of Arapawa's now, with two that we were lucky enough to witness their arrival on our little farm...very nail biting and exciting to watch

The day after giving Buddy back to his mum, ( for a second chance of mothering ), we got a call from the school saying the boys had registered their interest for some pet lambs for pet show day.

So being good parents 
( and quite possibly ones that were having a lapse of judgement that day!)
we said yes, and that afternoon we gained three little lambs to feed five times a day! 

Introducing Junior

 Dynamo.....named after my boys favourite magician

And Cloudy

 They're thankfully down to two feeds now, and are in the paddock with the rest of our flock

 It's been quite a responsibility for the boys and a steep learning curve...but there's also satisfying moments like this.

And also we've celebrated a couple of birthdays, my own and my little girls, who is now it me or do the years go really quick once your first starts school?

 A little present from our neighbours little boy

I had a go at cake decorating

 Attempts like these, remind me why I don't do this every year
......I start off happy, which then turns to frustration, and then tears....where I end up calling it a day.....and tell every child around me I will not be doing this again!.....then you just need to give me another 5 years before I'll guarantee I'll start the cycle all over again!
But although cake decorating may not be my thing! 
Apparently I can use a concrete trowel!  As I learned on Monday.... when Mike decided to single handedly lay our garage pad himself! 
Not a easy feat I can tell you!!  I thought for a while he was going to have a heart attack!.....but thankfully he had some very willing concrete drivers to muck in and me with my trusty trowel!

So as you can see we've been pretty busy around here....and this weekend will be no different with lots of new things to keep us busy.....that and if the weather and my back permits....I'll be back in my garden again

I think the cake is great. Far out though - you need to learn what slow down means!!! I don't know how you do it. But you do a fantastic job.

I really love the photo you took of the boys out in the paddock with the fence posts in between them. Your cake is fantastic, I love the Strawberry shortcake doll on top, we have a little fan of her in this house too.
