This year has been one out of the box..we lost our darling old pup..we are losing the other..we have spent months going from vet office to busting a gut outside in preparation for our Daughters wedding..throw in a nose operation the septic throwing a fit things breaking down breaking up or just breaking bad! as we rounded the finish line to the wedding hubby on his way to work at 4.30 hit and killed a joey that came out in front of my new car..poor Joey died instantly Hubby was fine..car ..well it’s been written off..the day after that our daughter called to say her sweet inside kitty Sherriff had gotten out and not come home..thankfully he did after a couple of restless nights.
The few markets i could attend have been pretty dismal..the weather so bad we cancelled several..it has certainly put a dent in my enthusiasm to say the least..investment versus reward..in the negative. I will be seeing how the markets go over the next few months but i think if it is a case of me basically not even covering my costs at the minimum then i am done, i will just keep going long enough to cover the contract of my eft machine as really financially it is costing me.
The time i have spent out taking pictures this year is minimal..i feel like with all that has happened i have lost a year..no canola trips ,mountain trips, nothing i enjoy.
Apart from a brief trip overseas and our daughters wedding the whole year has been pretty horrid.
I will not even go to the sadness that has befallen so many of my dear friends..sadness that weighs heavily in my heart.
So that is a brief explanation for my lack of blogging..even as i type this i have done no Christmas cards..have all manner of paperwork for market that i really am over ,need to get prints replaced and have let Doc out three times for a peemail.
I have the vet AGAIN this afternoon…so i leave you all with these pictures.
But like purple in these images has now all but gone from the landscape..so shall my Purple Patch..
