What to do with the rest of the day?? DH and I found a local quilt show to visit - some amazing quilts and I was really good no fabric brought home..
This one was my favourite -
or may be this -
no this defintiely....
What better to follow looking at quilts for a while but to go out for lunch. A scrumptious meal including dessert we didn't need but couldn't not have (sorry no pics didn't think of that at the time). Lastly we went and bought 5 new girls - all ISA browns and very friendly (photos to follow of them - Henny, Penny, Jenny, Lola and Edith! DD2 chose the names).
Sunday was spent planting trees - we planted 1000 and this was the last of them woo hoo (3000 in total). This was another fundraiser for our scout group that's created a bird corridor. Can't wait to go back in the future to see how it grows.
A beautiful day (only I could get sunburnt in SA in August and I was wearing a hat). The landholder leases some of his land to a "Wombat Rescue Group" one of the volunteers brought out Joy and Poppy to meet us. Little Poppy had been completely hand reared; she's now 12 months old and doing really well. Joy is 3 and has ongoing chest infections which limit her growth (she's about 1/2 the size she should be).
Yesterday an exchange student arrived for 2 weeks (only found out last Wednesday - the school was let down at the last minute by 3 families). She's a lovely girl from Tokyo with reasonable English skills - she can understand both girls but my accent throws her a bit - more on this later in the week.
