Another school holiday post. I didn't have a computer at the farm so I've been doing some retrospective posts. We had a visit while at the farm from three of the Foxs from Copperpatch. It was to be a sewing extravaganza BUT thank to a huge storm we had no power or water for 24 hours which kind of put a stop to sewing of the electrical kind. There was much cutting and pinning waiting for the power to come back on. Throw into the mix losing the entire fridge and freezer contents, flushing the loo with a bucket and no showers and you would think it would have been a total disaster but we managed to still have fun. The power came back on and we made up for lost time on day two. Abbe will fill you in on the rest. Harvey got quite into the farming scene.
Another treat last week was visiting a friend who does wildlife rescue, primarily kangaroos. The kids loved seeing them and patting the big ones and cuddling the babies in their make shift pouches. She does a marvellous job. It was great to teach the kids about injured wildlife and have some interaction with the kangaroos. The kangaroos in the picture aren't able to be re-released into the wild due to particular injuries so they are very used to human handling and are gentle and friendly. I got a cuddle from the big red which was an experience. He came up, put his arms around me and just rested there. There were other roos hopping around the garden that would eventually find their own way back to the bush and the local mob of roos. There were even a couple of really young ones on man made pouches which the kid got to have a nurse of. I think the youngest was on four hourly feeds.
