Tamar Valley-Sidmouth Sunny Sunday

Hi All, Well another Sunday has ebbed and flowed under the life bridge and we find ourselves contemplating our navels on Monday. That means there are only 2 weeks to “C” day and that will have a lot of people in a flap but we are enjoying the summer, doing what we like in the…

Decembuary the somethingth

Hi All, Well it’s December, it’s almost Christmas and the year has flown by SO fast I am still reeling on my feet. Here we are knocking at the door of 2018 and I have only just gotten used to writing 2017. We have had some hot weather here in Tasmania, followed by a 15C…

And so it goes…

Hi All, Another Sunday came and went and I didn’t do a blog post but this time it was deliberate as I wanted to film a short video of our property to show you and we were too busy yesterday because we were in the garden rehousing Steve’s disabled chicken “Limpy”. Limpy is an exception…

Snow and hot water bottles in November

Hi All, Well it’s official. It’s winter again apparently. Last night we had minus 2C and we both needed hot water bottles and Earl and Bezial needed their blankets again. I did hear that there was a sizable chunk of iceberg floating around off the coast of Macquarie Island which is pretty close to Tasmania…

When your phone dies and that’s a good thing

Hi All, As you may have ascertained by the title of today’s blog post, our phone died. We bought a phone with a Testra contract years ago. We were suckered into buying a Nokia Windows phone (yes…don’t wince) because it had a 40 megapixel camera and we figured we would be able to take good…

The one where Narf7 gets the flu

Hi All, What do you do when you have a cold, you feel generally weak and lethargic and you sound like Bea Arthur from the Golden Girls? You write a blog post, that’s what you do! I wrote this two weeks ago when I thought I had a “cold”. It turns out I had the…

It’s been a while…

Good lord, how did most of a year get away from me?! I was chatting to Robbie from Palm Rae Potager who prompted me, in the nicest way, to post. A lot has happened since we last parted ways. I almost feel like I should be saying “Forgive me Father for I have sinned…” Life…

The day my teacher turned into a fraggle

Hi All, Well the year has been zooming past and we have been filling it with all kinds of interesting things including learning how to film, how to record sound and how not to panic like Arthur Dent from ‘The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy’. We have had a much damper and cooler summer season…

Hi-de-ho it’s Sunday again

Hi All, Well as the title of this blog post alludes to, it’s Sunday again. That means I either sloth around reading or lazing around in a hammock or I decide to take a few photos and update my long suffering blog. Steve had a chat to a friend the other day who mentioned that…

One Sunday

Hi All, It’s a magic summers day in Sidmouth Tasmania and the temperature is approximately 21C so it’s cool indoors and the sun is performing its magic out of doors. I have been attempting to walk Earl a bit further than I usually do in order to have him knackered out when we head back…

How does your garden grow?

Hi All, Well our garden is growing particularly well thanks to a spate of hot weather that we have been having recently combined with the fridge wicking potential that has kept the veggies happily growing with no wilting despite some seriously hot sunshine outside. I wanted to show you how Narnia is going and so…

The post where we survive Christmas…just…

Hi All, I just thought I would take a small break from “doing everything all of the time” to share a few photos of how the 14 fridge wicker beds look now that they are covered with netting. We are winding down from our very first all vegan Christmas that coincided with Christmas Eve and…
