I am well and truly back in the land of colour swatches and sample pots. I have the dreaded Dulux Whites catalogue out and have spent my day doing things like this in The New House.
Please note the use of Johnson and Johnson Baby Wipes as paintbrush cleaning tools. I don't leave home without them.
I am also trying to tart up an old kitchen with a new benchtop. Laminex has got much trendier since I last checked.
Look - more beige.
Anyway - as this blog seems to be veering all over the place I thought I better get back on track.
Here is a tractor photo.

The above is a photo of our seeding equipment. The back bit is called an air seeding bar and it is being towed by one of our tractors. The photo was taken a few years ago during "seeding". Seeding refers to the time of year we plant our crops. It starts mid April (depending on rain) and goes forever. Well not really forever, but it feels like that by the end! In reality we have two seeding rigs, like the one above, going for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 4-6 weeks. It is easily our busiest time of the year.
I have posted this picture today because we are really starting to gear up for seeding. Our equipment is being serviced, staff trained up and rocks etc being cleaned up out of the paddocks. It is quite a stressful time of year and I can feel that the pressure is just starting to mount. It is very important that we are really prepared so we can start as soon as it rains anytime from April onwards.
It makes me tired just thinking about it!
I hope everyone has had a fantastic day and is enjoying being on the downhill run to the weekend.
Take care, wherever you may be.
