the nation might have stopped but I didn't
Today is a public holiday here - for the Melbourne Cup - the race that stops a nation. I didn't know the name of even one of the horses. Still don't. Not particularly 'into' racing.
MY day was spent doing a modest amount of housework, some goat wrangling, raking up straw and goat poo, moving a small mountain's worth of soil, mulching, weeding, taking tea on the verandah with David, playing with Ruby and Rowan and a brief visit next door to see how their wee half sister is doing. She still has no name but the Shetland ponies are now Lilly and Bobbi. PND confused me by calling the little one 'he' but Brenda assures me that they're both girls... and to answer Nadie's question ... yes, the new little goaty girl's markings are quite symmetrical.

tonight I'm working on Riley's polo top instead
and this is what I posted down for Miss Sasha Annabel
and just so you know
it's seven weeks 'til the fat man in the red suit arrives.
