How was your weekend? Mine was lovely and quiet. The year has kicked off here at Chardy HQ. Well, when I say kicked off I mean our crew is back and our new workers have arrived. They have been a bit pushed to find something for everyone to do given all the rain we had before they arrived. No one has been able to go anywhere which means working here at the station. The roads are still pretty wet but I think they are going to have a crack at doing a bore run today so we will see how far they get.
Everyone is hopeful that the main road drys up enough to go away for the Easter weekend. We are planning on heading to Yelvertoft Campdraft. I can’t say that I am actually all that thrilled about sitting around in the dry dusty heat for 4 days but hey – what doesn’t kill us only makes us stronger right – and the trip out of here will definitely make for a good blog post, I can guarantee it my friends. If we do get stuck we should be pretty right, we will have the essentials: a blender, generator, fridges, bed, beer, food. Think I had better take some good books too, either that or learn to ride a horse. There is only so much wine that a Miss Chardy can drink these days. Ha ha ha ha, I nearly said that with a straight face.
Our crew has grown to about 15 I think. I am also only cooking on a Sunday these days – yay!!! So yesterday was my cooking day. Back to having a Sunday night sausage sizzle at the Rec Club, it was basically Bunnings, should have charged them all $2.50 and cashed in – a Miss Chardy fundraiser if you will.
The blokes mowed the cricket pitch back in and played a bit of cricket yesterday. The kids loved it. Check out the grass from all of the rain… it is my job to mow that today… think I am going to have to empty the catcher after every strip. I may still be here mowing come Easter. Wish me luck.
Clancy is rocking some new gumboots and loving himself sick in them. He can totally pull them off, don’t you think? What an absolute spunk…
He can also finally ride his bike and is in training to join the Australian Cricket Team as a fast bowler…
So tell me, how was your weekend?
Do you live on a Station? Is your crew back to kick off too?
Are you going to Yelvertoft Campdraft for Easter?
