Morning has broken ๐Ÿ’ซ
Whenever Matt is away I get SO much done: beds are made, dishes are done, I sew at night and don't sleep well without him so am up at 4-5am doing ALL OF THE THINGS ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ
I bitch and moan about all of the #soloparenting I do but sometimes it's easier just to be head down bum up about it. This morning I saw the sun rise, have done a load of washing, gone for a brisk walk with Tessa, written some blog posts, edited some photos and the children are waking now at 7am to warm porridge and a clean kitchen. Husband should go away more often... ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿฟ

The closest I got to farm animal shots today between blustery showers for you @elli890 @prudenceclaire: my niece's pony, patiently awaiting Eleanor to be his new rider. And yes it's as cold as it looks - colder!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฌโ„๏ธ๐Ÿด #spiderthewonderpony #thorpydays #positivelyarctic #farmlife

Ewes + lambs around the house exciting Eleanor...but making life with Bella approximately 117% more challenging ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿ”ซ I am already wanting to adopt the black lamb, or at least trying to swap it with Tessa, nobody will knowwww..... ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ #lambing #thorpydays #farmlife #baabaablacksheep #forrealz

Welcoming Winter ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ (a sheepy shot of our driveway just for @elli890, all the mamas about to drop their bundles!) #farmlife #godscountry #gippslandforever #inspiredbygippsland #thorpydays

First frost! โ„๏ธโ„๏ธโ„๏ธ Bit late this year, lucky we tucked the jacaranda and avocado trees into their Winter coats on the weekend. Brrrr!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Grey old day, trundling home through the paddocks with the wood splitter for a day of firewood duties, checking lambing ewes as we go... ๐Ÿ #farmlife #thorpydays

Bleak would be an understatement... ๐Ÿ˜’โ˜”๏ธ๐Ÿ Writing the mother of all to-do lists for this week. Getting. It. Done! This week I'll be hustling, major weather event or not... ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ“๐Ÿƒ #antarcticvortex #thorpydays #toowetforsnow #usuallysnowsinmayoraugust

A Sunday well spent brings a week of content ๐ŸŒป ...although I was just remarking to husband-dearest that due to #operationfirewood my Sunday has looked just the same as my Monday. And my Tuesday. And my Wednesday. ๐Ÿค” But,I have a shed full(er) of wood. Beggars can't be choosers. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŒฒ๐Ÿ’› #sundayjobs #asundaywellspentbringsaweekofcontent #productivesunday #samesamesunday #lumberjackhusband #thorpydays

It's coming...slowly... #autumn ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ„
Popped up the road to grab some onions from @farmerwife3's roadside stall, just out of Thorpy on the Mirboo North Road - spuds and onions and eggs! So handy having local gems like this and @thorpdale_organics when I need the essentials. Considered a house cow but can now get @gippslandjersey at our little bakery. Officially no need to leave the hills! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฅ” #thorpydays #jenningsroadproduce

Home on the range ๐Ÿ’š #thorpydays

All this South Gippy wet stuff has our little creek levels right up. Must be July... ๐ŸŒง #niceweatherforducks #thorpydays

My mum/super Grandi would always say as we drove up our driveway, "That's a nice house, I wonder who lives here?!" Now I find myself saying the very same to another chubby little girl in the backseat as we round those familiar Thorpy bends and spy our little house on the hill... ๐Ÿก๐Ÿ’š #thorpydays

Aaaand, it's snowing... ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐ŸŒจ๐Ÿ˜‚ #gottolaughorillcry #gippslandwinter

The day! Cracking! Fingers crossed and prayers sent to the heavens for a similar day for Blossom's birthday bash... ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ #wishfulthinking #wintersunshine

Just like clockwork, the rain arrives just as we finish shearing. Nicely played, big fella.

I haven't ventured out to the rain gauge but @farmerwife3 informs me it's up to 20mm, and still steady. Hallelujah! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผโ˜”๏ธ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ’ฆ
