LOTH here... just reporting I had an awesome day in the sunshine yesterday working the land. Spent 4+ hours riding Caddy to try and make a difference to the state of our block. We had a verbal warning from the Shire recently, telling us we had to clean up our act or they'd slap a Fire Hazard notice on us. So we hired a slasher to do the bits we couldn't reach, and between Fuzzy on the trusty tractor and me on Caddy, we've whipped the place back into shape... to the best of our ability. However, thanks to a rogue (illegal) dirt dumper last year, we now have a splendiferous display of blackberries which Nama is working hard to kill, and it's difficult to make those areas look tidy.
I also need to mention our awesome neighborhood as we've all noticed just how much of a community feel the local area has. I finally met our closest neighbor yesterday and am delighted we've chanced on such a lovely family to live next to. We've had countless drop-ins from many of our new neighbors (all of whom are so friendly) as well as local walkers (big and small), and inquisitive folk who simply drop in to see what's doing. Love it!
