Meet amara. Pronounced ammmmarrrraaahhhhh lol 
She was born on Thursday afternoon and I'm pretty sure she was a  preemie
She was very small and no fat on her at all 
A neighbour saw her and rang hubby, while a second neighbour saw her and collected her 
Just as wonderson had gone in to get her 
She is being bottle fed and loving cared for. 
We have given her colostrum and is having lots of bottles of formula 
Here she is sitting on hubby's knee while he watches television. 
Being so little she sleeps a lot and spends the night in the bathroom. We are keeping her very warm as it's still really cold outside 
Please pray she makes it. Losing her now would be heart breaking! 
Her mum just walked away from her and we even tried to get her to take her the next day. But she didn't even have any milk 
Nothing came out when hubby checked. 
This is her first lamb  so maybe she is too young. 
So this is what has been keeping us busy 
The joys of country living

He had a lovely surprise and Jody brought party hats and Lolly bags lol 
Wonder son and lovely daughter in law were also here  so it was quite the party Happy birthday hubby. Hope you enjoyed yourself

Melody update

A busy morning at grandmas house 
Doing puzzles
And looking after the lion 
Helping with th vacuuming 
Grandma finds it hard when I'm trying to help her but don't have my own vacuum cleaner 
So she bought me one. 

And after playing outside and getting muddy splashing in puddles 
A snack while we watch Dora the explora 
 Looking after grandma is hard work!

Balloon ride

A long time ago. Bec and I talked about how we wanted to take a ride in a balloon 
We decided that one day we would do it 
But life, as it does, got in the way and it got pushed back 
And eventually out of our minds I 

At the start of the year we decided we would do it for my fiftieth birthday 

Well eight months later we finally got up, up and away 
What a wonderful feeling floating through the sky
It's as close as we can get to feeling like a bird sailing on the currents 
There were three other balloons that took off at the same place and time as us 
We were in the Yarra valley and could see all ththe way to the city, and could see more balloons 
Sailing around Melbourne! 

Here we all are ready for take off. I think our multicoloured balloon was the prettiest! 
What a wonderful memory we now have 
Thanks so much Bec for making this dream a reality. No way would I have ever done something like this on my own 
If you ever get the chance I highly recommend it
It's not scary at all, but so very relaxing and inspiring 
Might have to do it again someday

Butterscotch self saucing pudding

Gotta love Pinterest 
When you have a hankering for something, but not sure what 
Get onto Pinterest and you will find something
Then mix and bake! 

It was very very yummy! 
Perfect for a cold Sunday afternoon
