A Day on the Farm

Posted on 9 February, 2011 at 23:13
Welcome everyone! :-)
 
Today is my very first blog. Yeah! I have just won the battle of developing my very own website, by myself!, and I must say I am quite chuffed at how well it turned out. There were a few moments where I wanted to bang my head against the screen for lack of computer knowledge but somehow I waided through the unkown and emerged a computer nerd, well nearly!
 
It's smack bang in the middle of picking season for us here on the farm and I have put two photos on this blog. One of my brother-in-law in the back of the farm truck with all the crates of longans. This fruit will then be driven to my Dad's farm in Mareeba to be packed and shipped off down south for the fruit markets. This is a day at the office in the outback. The other is of our Longan trees. A few more months and this will all be picked.
 
I will include a weekly thought when I do my blogs. This week's is
"Don't squat with spurs on!"
 
Hope you are all well and enjoying your day to the full
 
Keep smiling and dreaming
 
Mandy

My darling Mandy, I am so very proud of your acheivements, especially those of the past couple of years. I have always beleived in your inner strengths, and in your passions. Although you offered that I read your manuscripts along the way, I wanted to wait instead for the day, when I could pluck one of your books from the book sellers shelf. I never wanted to miss that experience, for I shall be bursting with pride and excitement! Congratulations my love, the best is yet to come. Your forever friend, Jo
