Pancho was very wary of the sheep when he first arrived. But now he spends his time watching them

mumma having a good old scratch

oooh that feels good.


  1. i can't wait to see the truck when it is finished. the boys must be having lots of fun with it!

    1. yes great male bonding. I can't wait then I can get them to cart compost, new trees, firewood... and then make my bush bath. we always have too many projects on the go around here.

  2. Looks like the blokes are having a ball! As is Mumma sheep having a good old scratch. I hope the tea helps Abbey.

    1. cracks me up watching the sheep get inbetween the branches - their look of pure delight makes me wanna get down there and have a good old scratch too

  3. Hi Leeanne
    Recipe sounds yummy. How do I acquire a turmerick plant? Can you buy it at a garden centre? Tea sounds lovely.

    1. nz too cold to grow turmeric me thinks. I buy mine from the organic shop it is usually in the fridge with the veges. Real turmeric is soo much yummier than the spice stuff by far, But do watch as it stains I usually scrape it with my citrus peeler to grate it,
