My family at home in New Zealand are having some troubles so I am selling cows and pigs as fast as I can so I can fly home next week.
Aunty Anna, Txiki and Stupid ( 2 heifers and one cow ) are being sold in the next few days to two different locations. And on Monday I will clear the whole back field of the four hogs, I am literally spending days in the truck dragging the stock trailer. But last minute fares are not cheap.
With the help of my short term woofers I am getting the fences up to date and fine tuning my lazy laid back systems, getting all the pigs and birds and cows ready for John to take over for a week while working full time . It will not be easy for him.
Sometimes a Mama needs to be with her children. And there better not be anything getting in her way.
Anyway – the why is not my story to tell. But I felt I owed you a partial explanation for my lack of attention.
My Self is running on fumes already and I have days to go yet. I will be in and out of the blog but mostly Out with all the early morning deliveries of animals and the rush to get the farm ready for a hand over in six days.
I feel I am running right to the end of my mental and physical abilities. But there you are. I will get through – we all will. We must.

WEATHER: Still no rain.
