Hail is not good for our crops - all the grain is knocked out of the heads of the plant and is ruined. Fortunately we have good crop insurance and The Farmer has spent the week liasing with our insurance assessor. Never a dull moment when you farm for a living.
The Farmchildren had never seen hail and were absolutely amazed. It wasn't too heavy at the house but did make a racket on our tin roof! The Farmchildren were quick to discover that it also stung when it hit you. Farmgirl was undaunted and quickly equipped herself for the conditions and got out there.

She grabbed a giant frisbee and held it over her head. To complete the hail protection she wore The Farmer's noise cancelling headphones he uses when he is exposed to loud noise. I like her style.
In other news The Farmer and I got to go to the movies. This hardly ever happens but we were in Perth for some appointments and grabbed the chance to go and see Skyfall. It was brilliant and we both loved it. I think Daniel Craig is officially my favourite James Bond ever. (Sorry Mr Connery but I think you are just a bit too old for me....)
I have spent the last few days getting The Farmhouse all Christmassy. I promise I will post some photos soon.
(I have been neglecting this blog recently. A woeful effort on my part but there has just been so much going on.)
