After loosing Fluff the cat and taking into account the regular visits from wild dogs and dingos, we decided to get a puppy (Ridgeback Cross Mastiff) called Safari.
He is the most gorgeous dog, full of love and trouble. He has been such a beautiful addition to our family !!
A few weeks ago my friend Amy & her partner Jerome moved into the camper van to help me on the property.
In the first week they’d organised where additional edible gardens were going, started two 28 day compost piles, fixed the wiring & battery on my shower and set up a camp for themselves. I feel blessed to have
two such beautiful caring souls here helping !! They also brought face paints and hula hoops back into our lives.
We had a bit of an adventure with a couple of night tiger snakes (brown tree snakes) which kept coming around the van. One we managed to catch & relocate, another one we gently moved off right back into the bush. I also had another run in with a scorpian, it didn’t bite me this time, just hiding in the washing & gave me a fright !!
One Sunday when Jade & I were couch-bound with gastro, Maia got out with battery drill and starting making her own cubby house using timber from the old chicken coup and whatever she could find lying around, love my girls !! Maia turned ten in August and we took a trip out on the Kuranda Riverboat with her georgeous friends from school, looking for wildlife in and along the river – no freshwater crocodiles to be seen though (probably for the best).
I also managed to get two trailer loads of River of Gold Slate (beautiful colours) from Ravenshoe for my floors, hopefully this will do the entire space – can’t wait to have flooring !!
