Wow, I just had a mammoth 2 days on the lawn mower. The grass was so long it wasn’t even funny after all the rain we had. It seriously took me one and a half solid days to mow the main lawn over near the kitchen and quarters as well as our lawn. I had to do a double cut on the main lawn, took me one whole day. Thank goodness the weather had cooled down to 33 degrees for me otherwise I wouldn’t have been a happy camper.
Anyway it is all done now thank goodness. However the grasshoppers have now moved in. And when I say grasshoppers I mean swarms and swarms of the little mongrels. Oh dear lord, I can’t even explain how bad they are. No photo can show you just how bad they are. As you walk along through the grass they all fly up and whack you in the face. Gazillions of them!
And who’d have thought something so little could be so bloody disgusting. When you look out on the lawn all you see is a blanket of grasshoppers. And don’t even get me started on the pool, they are clogging up the filter basket like it is nobodies business. They also poo everywhere and it isn’t pretty my friends. These little critters are disgusting. Tiny little grasshopper poo left in their wake.
Thankfully we are off to a campdraft tomorrow and lets just hope that the grasshoppers don’t follow us.
In other news Clancy got to go out on a mini bore run with Danno yesterday. He always comes to get Clancy before he checks the airstrip nest and the cattle yards nest, so Clancy thinks he is a little bore runner. It is so cute. He took his new gun with him yesterday. Smokey (who is Snowy’s Dad – one of our Jackaroo’s) made this for him and Snowy brought it back up after his holidays. Check it out – it is unreal. Well actually it looks very real. Made out of timber, he has even stained and painted/polished it. It is so cool. How much of a legend is Smokey to make this for him??!!!! Check the little spunk rat out…
Off he goes with Danno to check some bores and turkey’s nests…
Clancy is of course tickled pink and carts his new gun around everywhere, thinks he is Elma Fudd.
So that is what I have been up to. How about you? How is your week going? Are you heading away for Easter? School holidays start here this week. Well actually today is the last day of school for my boys as we head off tomorrow Campdrafting. I had best go and get myself sorted.
I will be taking my jewellery to Yelvertoft Campdraft and setting up on Friday, so if by any chance any of my readers will be at the draft, come along and say hello. I reckon I should set up my blender and offer free Japanese Slippers to my customers. What do you think? Jewellery & Japanese Slippers – does it get any better, ha ha ha.
Have a fabulous weekend you great hunks of spunks.
