Good news… I think I can see a glimmer of light at the end of the dark cooking tunnel. I can almost feel it. You know what happened yesterday…. an angel arrived. Her name is Julie and she is our new cook! Yes, that’s right folks…. my cooking days are over for now. Lets hope and pray that she loves it here and is a wonderful cook.
So hopefully I will be able to get back into my early morning blogging routine. Things have been a bit hit and miss here lately and it has had to be, for my sanity.
What have we been up to lately? We had a busy weekend. On Friday night Miss Gabby, our wonderful Governess, together with the children, put on a fabulous Trivia Night. It was a bit of a belated “Territory Day” celebration. Miss Gabby is the hostess with the mostess and knows how to put on an event. She totally rocked it and put on a great night. There were even jelly shots.
It appears that DD is settling in quite well to station life. She even had a Japanese Slipper as well as 2 jelly shots and a glass of wine, I am surprised she wasn’t on the floor. I have even heard her swear and call herself the “Dish Bitch”. Not sure where I would have been these past 2 weeks without her and Rexy. They have helped no end. And yes, Mum has been the best Dish Bitch ever. Her main jobs over the past 2 weeks have been: washing up, washing up and more washing up as well as making endless jugs of powdered milk and filling the urn. And Rexy has been a brilliant babysitter, Clancy has been loving life sick as his new shadow. Oh and Rexy has also cut a fine figure on the ride on mower. I tell you, they have certainly earned their keep.
Here is Miss Gabby – Quiz Master – with her jelly shots. Thanks so much for a great night Gabs.
On Sunday it was Miss Gabby’s birthday. She requested crumbed steak and pavlova, so who was I to argue. We trotted out enough crumbed steak to feed 2 army’s and a yummy pav.
So, yes, we are still alive up here and hope to be around these parts a bit more now. I feel happier already. It is Mr Chardy’s birthday today so we are having steak and chips at Rec Club and I have just whipped up a chocolate log as his birthday cake.
Happy Wednesday to you all, and thanks for being patient with this crazy lady. xx
