April drifted into May and suddenly 3 weeks has passed since my last Blog. I can't believe I've been so slack, but when I look back at the last 3 weeks I just might have an acceptable excuse!
It's dark in the morning when we leave for work, and dark when we return..when we get up we gotta have our porridge, feed chickens (news coming up on that one), feed doggies, make coffee for our thermos cups for car and then drive 1 hour 20 to work, then work.....and if this isn't hard enough, we gotta do it all in reverse, drive home, feed chickens, feed dogs again, make dinner, get fire going and then try and relax, so we watch some telly and do some more chores, then before you know it..Jo Nesbo's new thriller is calling my name.. so my wee Blog was sadly abandoned... But then , just today I had a breakthrough, my Blog idol, Laura, at Our Wee farm www.myweefarm hasn't put up any excuses for 'not' doing her Blog, so I've decided to get committed (not literary) and keep my Life on the Lifestyle track alive and kicking.
Well, firstly I must tell ya, work was crazy busy over the Easter Holidays, over 2 weeks, 63,000 visitors came to the Zoo, it was manic and it was awesome...the very best School Holidays ever, we themed the holiday programme 'The Truffula Trail" based on the Lorax Movie. The weather was exceptional which really helped.
'The Magnificent 7' . About 6 days ago, our good friend Paula at work informed me there was the cutest little Brown Shaver in the Zoo Car Park, looks like it's been dumped (why do people do that?)... so, yes you've guessed it, I only went to look and when I saw this tame little thing I really couldn't leave her.

Finally.....Winter is coming and we all know it... We have had the most beautiful Autumn, rewarding us with rich sunshine throughout the days and gifting our land with evening showers... and us, we are blessed with the opportunity to warm our hearts in the house that has become a sanctuary, a haven...a Home.
