First of all our Christmas Puddings arrived. Yay! As a bona fide Farmer's Wife it would not be unreasonable to think that I would make my own. No way - there are other farmer's wives out there that will make them for me. And package them beautifully. And post them. Perfect. My kind of puddings.
They are made by two gorgeous ladies at The Gravel Road Pudding Company. They have closed their mail orders for this year but I know they supply a number of gourmet outlets in Perth. I highly recommend you keep an eye out.
Here they are, all gift boxed and glammed up.

I also received some Christmas wall stickers which I have put up in our kitchen.
See, they make a cute tree type effect.

Because I put them up, they are not completely straight. That's ok. I know if I leave them like that for long enough The Farmer won't be able to cope. He will then make string lines and other farmer type arrangements and fix them. Problem sorted.
Like all good farmers he needs things in straight lines. He will dig up the seedlings I plant in the vegie patch and reformat them if they don't meet his exacting standards. It's a farmer thing. Trust me.
On a slightly different note I would just like to encourage anyone who is shopping in WA tomorrow to buy lots of very expensive fruit and veg at Woolworths. They are donating all their profits from the sale of fruit and veg on Friday the 3rd of December to the CWA. The CWA have set up a fund to provide assistance to drought stricken farmers so they can still have a special time at Christmas. It is called Christmas For The Country.
Anyone reading my blog will know that we have been incredibly fortunate on The Farm this year - we have crops and hence a harvest to bring in. We are truly in the minority in Western Australia this season. Many, many farming families are having the struggle of their life to keep their head above water due to a disastrous lack of rain. So people - get to Woolies and buy lots of super expensive things like cherries and mangoes.... Remember we all need farmers because we all need food. It's that simple.
Alternatively - click here and see how you can donate to the CWA.
Enjoy your day.
PS- I tried to post a little link to the Gravel Road ladies but their website seems a little under the weather.. . Sorry
