My Weekend

Hi Bloggers, Ive had a busy weekend with my twin sister and her partner down for the weekend. My twin lives in the city and I of course I live in the country. Today we went to our friends farm so Liz could get some really good cow poo for her own garden at home. Several bags later and they should have the best veggies in Melb. We saw whilst out at the farm which is a 5 min drive a family of Wedged Tailed Eagles...anyone that knows me knows that I just adore any kind of animal...

We also got to play with one of the girls R34 she is getting on in years now she is about 7-8yrs old she had a calf a few years back that was prem and her calf was called 'Pig"....7 came over for a play and Ollie the long haired border collie entertained us when he jumped into the water trough.. We came home had a bite to eat and then the visitors left...A friend had brought around some Blood Plums so the husband got busy and we made some Plum Sauce a jar will be given to the ex owner of the blood plums in appreciation of his plums...
Liz and her check out the footwear

Well the first couple of days back at school and the old knee blew up. I went back to the surgeon and the outcome i had torn my ACL at some stage and it showed damage I also had meniscus issues and some crazing of the knee cap. Also behind the knee cap shows damage.W ow no wonder I was in pain just before Christmas. Physio visit to Colac on Thursday and my physio worked her magic on my sore muscles.... Friday another busy day try to reorganise the school Library after it has been shifted for the 3rd time....lots of books still not on shelves...oh well I do have 12 months to fix Today I have lazed around and then decided to make some patty cakes for afternoon tea...We are finally empty nesters so its very very quite at our house...
