Happy Australia Day to all ! In 44 degree heat we decided to ditch the damper cooked in the camp fire and went with inside homemade lamingtons instead. We had some friends over and the children loved the lamingtons. (Note the Aussie flag hanging in the background - thanks Jules)

J has been saving for quite some time to get a new scope for his Remington 280. The scope is the black telescopic looking thing sitting on top of the gun. It is a Burris Eliminator Laserscope with a built in range finder. J really enjoys long range shooting (the sport of shooting targets from various distances). He has also shot a few deer and I must say a venison curry on a cold winters night is rather delicious.

We have not been able to use the pool much this summer as the sand flies carry you away. Today we decided to brave it to give the boys a swim. It was great fun . We lasted 10 minutes. The handsome tall red head with the boys in the pool is our danish agricultural exchange student - 'R'.

I have been baking bread in the oven for about 4 months now. I use Kialla Wholemeal Bread Flour and buy it in bulk 25kg. I bought two bread tins from The Bread Shop in Toowoomba and mix the dough in my thermomix. The boys love it (and I love the smell of it baking).

Here is J out irrigating the cotton. It takes about 3 days to irrigate the whole farm, and as he is trying to water it efficiently as possible he has been up at all hours doing shifts as soon as the water is through. You can not see in the shot but there are millions of sand flies buzzing around due to flood waters.

M has been trying for days to get his thumb into his mouth and today he has finally done it. He woke from his daytime nap and over the baby monitor you could hear him sucking it very loudly. J said and I quote ' Gee he's going for it'.

It was not M. It was not W. It was not D. And it was not J. Who was it? It was C - the naughty little puppy. W and D came in from outside and discovered C having the time of his life with the toilet rolls. Needless to say I used it as a lesson about making mess.

J took this shot from our property boundary where the flood water just about broke the levy bank that was built. If it had not been for building such a big levy our cotton crop would have been inundated. I actually love the colour brown and have numerous shades of it in my house.

Decided to give these a wash as well. I use these on the couch in the lounge room but they are also big enough to use as a floor cushion. The boys often lie on them to read books. The fabric is Sprout Design on White - My Little World Elephant.
