I had promised a good friend that I would go on a Gourmet Safari tour for her birthday last year, and being a ‘good friend’, I just ‘had’ to spend a lovely day walking around Punchbowl in Sydney, learning about Lebanese food (and tasting a whole lot of it too!). OK so it wasn’t ‘too’ hard to convince me to go along.
After a sleep in on Sunday, it was off to the local model trains, especially for a little boy who yuvs all vehicles. My sister and her two older kids, and my parents joined us for a few rides around the track (only $2 a ride!) and a picnic lunch.
The mountains still feel like home to me. Probably always will. But I was also eager to get back to the farm, and get organised for the week ahead. With a full week of work, and shearing going on, my life is getting more and more intertwined with the farm and local area. Maybe it can be my second home!
