Just a quick hello to you all today, in the lull between party preparation and party party.
Today we’re celebrating, albeit belatedly, The Farmer’s change in employment status to Full Time; Christmas kind of got in the way of a more timely bash. While most of us on the Homestead would opt for a meal out at a favourite restaurant (or one we have an inkling may soon become one), The Farmer has never been one to follow the crowd. He has instead opted for a full on tea party reminiscent of the birthday soirees of old with club sandwiches, butterfly cakes, chips and dip, and sausage rolls; the menu was very specific. Afterwards The Return of the King has been downloaded for our viewing pleasure. What started as a way for him to avoid having to don his best jeans and T shirt has now taken a life of its own and there is even talk of some Homesteaders dressing up in a Lord of the Rings manner.
So, after a week in which we stopped talking and started doing:
possibly identified the breeds of the new chick babies:
and one of our number taught herself to skateboard:
we’re going to kick back, relax and indulge in celebration of the beginning of The Farmer’s working life.
Happy weekend to you all.
