Michael’s favourite ‘cow’ from next door – he calls him Black Moo :)

Let me in Mrs B ;) I’m a friendly Green Tree Frog – not a yucky toad!

Michael wanted a cow for Chrissy – so the kids got 5 mice (who said parenting makes any sense)

Happy to find a volcanic crater on the property – hmmm – some might call it a dry dam ;)

The unnamed horse next door has become quite attached to Tessa

(and I have started making random horse noises ;) it’s fun, you should try it – sound of  air through vibrating lips)

  1. Hmm…making random horse noises… Gabrielle…I’m beginning to become somewhat concerned about how isolated you new home is. :-) May your new year be filled with joy and love!

    • Thanks Nigel – it is great and the good news is that since I got a new aerial, the internet seems to be fine now (fingers crossed) – happy 2013 to you and may many more novellas and novels pour forth from your lovely noggin’.

  2. I am in love with your new place already. I would be so excited to live there. I think it is a volcanic crater, for sure. Haha. WOW. There is so much going on there….. a real hive of activity. Wishing you and the family hundreds and thousands of happy days there xx

    • Thank you lovely Selma – we have been incredibly busy investigating all the stuff here – it’s far from an empty landscape – many things to notice and marvel at – birds I’ve never seen, frogs I’ve never seen or heard, all the animals and plants – and talking to the neighbours is very enlightening (I know so little about the farming way of life – it’s quite embarrassing ;) ).

  3. Tessa’s photo of the horse is too funny and Michael’s Black Moo looks nice and friendly (she says, shivering with bovinaphobia) :-D Lots of fun to be had in that “volcanic crater” – wouldn’t that be fun if it erupted, haha

  4. Lots of animals here for your kids to enjoy. Glad it is turning out well. My son…now grown (they all are) use to bring home tree frogs and give is sisters a fright. Boys. :)

  5. aloha Gabrielle – way fun discovering new space. i like your “who said parenting makes sense?” line a lot. this place looks like a great space for inspiration and muse-attraction. fun. aloha
