It’s been a while hasn’t it. Where does time go? Here we are… first day of September and Harry turned 10 yesterday. 10 – TEN people. How can that be?
We are in Camooweal for Mini School and it is pretty hot to say the least.
Well where do I start? When I haven’t blogged for a while I never really quite know where to start so then I just don’t do anything. I go into shut down mode and put it in the too hard basket. I just pretend it isn’t there.
So I am just going to start by saying hi. I am still here and we are doing ok. I have missed you all and hope you are still out there waiting to read my blogs.
Things have been crazy, we have been here there and everywhere and now I am sitting here in Camooweal, in my horse truck typing away having a bit of a break.
This week is one of my boys favourite school weeks. We all camp together at the race course in caravans, tents, horse trucks or horse floats.
The kids get to play and do school. We all eat very well and it is just a bloody good week for a catch up. A chance to chat with other Mum’s and realise perhaps all is ok, perhaps you aren’t the terrible Mum that you think you are when you are out at Bum Truck Nowhere on a station dealing with kids alone. Perhaps your kids are ok and not as naughty as you think they are when you are in your station bubble. It is just so great to chat face to face with friends and boy do I have some great friends. These women are absolute legends. I know I say it all the time but we are so lucky to live in such a fabulous community. Even if that community does stretch over about 2,000km’s!!!
Here how about I introduce you to a few of my lovely friends…
This is Sal or you may know her as Mrs Gumnut – the gorgeous face behind Gumnut Designz.
This lady is one little pocket rocket and a fabulous business woman doing wonderful things from the middle of nowhere.
And check out this little hottie – meet Bab’s…
Bab’s and her family live on a station right up near Kununurra… yep, it takes her a couple of days just to travel down here for these school weeks but we are so glad she does. Bab’s has 4 children ranging from year 12 down to year 3. She always makes everything look so effortless and looks like she has just stepped out of a Vogue magazine most of the time, even if she has been travelling for 2 solid days to get somewhere.
This is Amanda…
Amanda and her husband manage a gigantic cattle station. Yep – it is about 3 million acres… 3 MILLLLLLLION ACRES (cue little finger to mouth like Doctor Evil)… Her days pretty much consist of managing people. Lots of people because there are about 50 staff on their station. I feel sick just thinking about it really. Oh she also happens to be one of my friendly neighbours.
Another pocket rocket who can make a cappuccino like it’s nobodies business and her sausage curry is second to none my friends. If you want something done Tina is your go to girl, she could rule the world I tell you. Just a real little go getter. Doesn’t mind a rum either – god bless her.
Anyway, I started this blog post yesterday and I am sitting here amongst all of my friends finishing it off today.
I hope you are all well and I am looking forward to hearing from you all. Are you still there?
What’s been happening in your part of the world?
