The farm had very little internet reception. So I am behind on all correspondence and blog replies. Today I am working on catching up just on washing and the house. We all know what it is like when we have been away. It seems to take a few days to get back into the swing of things.
It was not a normal week of savings but an investment in other ways.
At the farm there were lambs and a baby deer that are all being bottle fed. This is the first time for a deer. He is so lovely and like a baby.
He wouldn't stand still so I got Chloe to hold him and took a heap of photos.
I love the spots. To me he is just like out of a fairy story!
Hopefully Harper and Scarlett will see him in a couple of weeks. They will have so much fun!
The lambs are tiny. Just a few days old.
This time of year while its cold is the time for clean ups around the yard. Mum loves a fire and it was warm to stand near. Fallen trees were being cut down for future wood as well.
Because there has been rain things are looking green and good. Rain is always the big issue.
Before I left on this trip I did manage to bake a heap of Orange Cakes. I did muffin size and small loaf size. Several went into the freezer.
So now I have washing to do, soup to put on, custards to bake and so on. The sun is shining and it looks like a beautiful day. It was really cold last night thought! It was a two hot pack night haha!
Andy had a bunch of savings and makings amounting to a few hundred dollars.
I am not sure how I will go this week with posting. I didn't think I would get this post done! I will just see how I go. I am getting a ridiculous amount of spam comments every day and this is taking me ages too! These are commenters who aren't really reading they try and post a comment that is a thinly veiled ad for something they are selling etc. Drives me crazy!
How did you build up your nest, get ahead or save last week? For many of us we had the first day or winter! There was a time I didn't love winter but now I do. Soups, the slow cooker going, warm and cozy, lots of crochet...
Have a wonderful Sunday and new week!xxx
