There's some exciting developments at Big House, with the arrival of a team of roofers to the property yesterday morning... Hopefully, I can post some before and afters soon.
I did have a brief moment of terror this afternoon when trying to observe the beginnings of the new roof and realising that it was literally so shiny I had to look away.
I hope our roof doesn't start any grass fires this summer. It really is THAT shiny.
Meanwhile, a quiet afternoon at our place yesterday was interrupted by an excited knock on the back window. My neighbour, who runs her cattle on all the acres of our property we don't currently use, summonsed us to a viewing spot above the back paddock.
We had just taken up our positions there when a swollen cow, who'd been rocking back and forward all day under the relentless observation of my excited neighbour, gave birth to a tiny calf in a gush of blood and fluid.
I am sure it would have been quite an eye opener for our respective toddlers had they not been busily hitting each other with sticks at the time. Kids, eh. No respect for the messy miracle of new life.
So this is the newest arrival at our place, shortly after his birth. Welcome, baby bull. Enjoy your stay here.
