    Always a good feeling to get our annual hay hunt and collection out of the way, and we managed it all on Saturday morning. 120 bales of meadow, only took two trips with the large trailer, plus we got morning tea. Thank god for my Dad! And my friend who was going halves in the hay with me was so grateful that Dad and I did a lot of the lifting (cos her hubby did his back in at 8am that morning!!) that Dad got beer and I got a home made lemon tart. Yummo. Plus, we have also cut the big paddock at our agistment, so we should get 20 bales or so each out of that, so we're laughing this year!!:D

    We only have to do the unloading/stacking part- BUT even that is "the worst job ever!"

    Which reminds me, I was sitting on the toilet yesterday, felt a tickling on my upper bottom, and there was a daddy long legs hanging there waving his legs at me. Must get vacuum cleaner out........ I do try to be spider friendly but that really is pushing the friendship!
