Wake up Australia

raspberry and meWhere’s my bottle Mummy?

I won’t blame the mini goats this time ๐Ÿ˜‰

Bottle feeding has finished – hallelujah – a fantastic experience but not one I want to do again in a hurry.

The best thing about bottle feeding is that the bubba goats get very attached to their ‘mummy’ and bowl you over everytime they see you.

No, this time I’m blaming asthma.

Isn’t oxygen just the best thing in all the world ๐Ÿ™‚ breathe it in my friends.

If you say no, than you most probably have never suffered from asthma.

This week the children and I have all had asthma to varying degrees with the boy suffering the most and almost going to hospital with an asthma attack on Saturday. Very scary stuff.

He’s finally got some medication (on top of his preventer and puffer) that is working really well and the coughing/wheezing has almost stopped.

One day we might even get them back to school.

We’re about to do a rain dance so that the local allergens get washed away to the back of Bourke and we can breathe freely again.

Yours truly

wheezy and co.

Sheba is very unimpressed with the ever increasing size of the pack (and her order in it ๐Ÿ˜‰ )


Can you guess what this is?



Having some technical and other issues at the moment.

My PC is on the way out and needs to be replaced ASAP. It is literally falling apart.

My rural (even though we are only 10 minutes drive to a major town) internet connection is as slow as a wet week (and to make it worse my monthly download allowance has been reached – thanks to the kiddliewinks)

My email is not working so I have to use another computer to access my email! It is some sort of bug related to updates.

And most importantly, my brother Daniel has been very ill in hospital for the past week (though is now at home) and is having great difficulty eating and drinking because ofย  a chronic condition ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

The good news is the kids are back at school and almost enjoying it ๐Ÿ™‚

playful goats
crunching on hay
tough roughage


Two gorgeous miniature goats have joined Merlin and Spirit (our two Suri alpacas) in their paddock.

I would like to introduce you to Billy and Benny – they are very young but won’t get much bigger ๐Ÿ™‚

They are pets and we can lead them around the garden like dogs, but unlike dogs, they eat nearly everything they can get their little mouths around (including plastic)!

We will have to keep a close eye on these two hyperactive eating machines.
