One Sheep, Two Sheep

It's just soooo wonderful to be on holidays at last!  After those couple of days in Crows Nest visiting the Gardens in Toowoomba, we unpacked and repacked the car to head off down to Vic .....
Back on the road again!  It was Sunday and we seemed to catch every wide load that was on the Newell!  This particular one we ended up having to stick behind for 20kms of road work - I guess we were lucky in a way as you should have seen the huge line of traffic that was sitting on the side of the road after the works, waiting for this wide load to come through!!

We are on our way to Melbourne for Daughters 30th!  However, first we had a planned stop in with friends in Boorhaman for a few days where we used to live (its also quite close to Bundalong where we moved from).  A few days spent in the country with friends is just what the Doctor ordered!! 

 Our second day was spent with some woolly therapy of  a different style ........  moving and  drafting sheep. 

Keeping them from running through the cross roads in the wrong direct

Pat and Judy had over a thousand sheep that needed sorting and putting through a foot bath so we had a great day out on the roads and in the sheep yards!

 I found it very therapeutic working with the sheep - they don't complain like people do!
Pete up the other end

We had a fabulous few days with our friends and caught up with quite a few others while we were there,  and unfortunately the time just went way too quickly!  Judy and I have missed out times sitting together chatting and knitting, but we sure did try to make up for lost time while we were there lol!  I have no doubt we will be back down for another holiday before too long! 

I love this photo of Judy looking rather amused that during the busy bits of moving sheep, I was busy taking photos as well lol!

For now, its time to hit the road again and travel down the rest of the way to Melbourne where we will catch up with family and other friends ....... See you soon!

Hugs Sharm

PS:  Thanks to those who checked out the comments problem for me, it seems to fine from this end!

Whats THis???

One of my lovely blogger friends tried to leave a comment on my last post but was redirected to a "sordid" site rather than the comments window.  She emailed me privately to let me know - I have checked the HTTPS setting is already on which should avoid this and when I clicked on the comments I had no issues??  Can anyone give me any extra info on this??  My email is  ........ perhaps if I change my email account with my blog I wonder if that might work???

Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers

Is it seriously this long since I've posted here on my blog!!!  It's certainly been a year of change for us and I've really felt the difference working full time and having Pete retired with how much (or how little) I seem to achieve now on my days off work!!  Anyhow, lets hope now that i'm getting used to my new laptop that I can actually work on a few more frequent posts!  I am pleased to say that I have appeared to have worked out how to download the photos off my phone and ipad without it taking forever!!   Technically challenged!!  Anyway, I'm currently on holidays ....Yipee!!! 

 The very first day of my holidays we took off with the
neighbors to stay at Crows Nest so the men could go fishing at Cressbrook Dam, whilst Martine and I headed to Toowoomba for the the Carnival of Flowers!!  I have to say after wanting to visit this for a number of years, I was not disappointed.  It was wonderful. We spent the whole day looking at a few of the private gardens that were open and also a visit to Picnic Point and Laurel Bank Gardens - Laurel Bank is a must for anyone planning a future trip here!  So onwards with the flowers .....
