My friend Andrea had the most beautiful white leather (or maybe they were just vinyl?!) skates with red wheels. Oh how I envied her! My skates were red, blue and yellow! How retro - probably a collectors item now!
Anyway, I always have the Ellen show on at lunchtime for a bit of light entertainment, and yesterday she had an absolutely amazing husband and wife team of roller skaters on. Check out their You Tube clip below - OMG, it's superb! Now why didn't I ever look like that?!

Although Emma did a fantastic job at her audition, she wasn't picked to go onto the next round. The judge was very impressed with her voice saying that he was surprised that she had such a strong voice, but at 15 years old she just needs some more performance experience and to definitely try again next year. He just told her to go out and do as much performing as she could.
Emma was really happy with her audition and even happier with the judges comments. She was just glad that he didn't tell her she was a "crap singer", to use Emma's exact words! So she's very excited about the year ahead and what it could hold for her!

Some of the bags have a lot of tape on them and resemble a patchwork quilt!
Look at what I had to contend with this morning!!! We have not owned sheep for about 5 years now - Farmer Phil hates sheep and does not tolerate them on his cropping paddocks at all! We have a mob of sheep being agisted on one of the paddocks that we do not grow crop on as it's too steep and full of rocks and trees. I received a mercy call this morning from Farmer Phil - the sheep had escaped their paddock and were happily tramping all over Farmer Phil's good cropping paddock.
Lucy was happy to stay on the back of the ute and bark instead of rounding the sheep up. Actually, I didn't want to let her off in case she ran around in front of them by mistake as she hasn't seen a sheep in a long time and maybe wouldn't remember what to do! Jack kept her company and let out a few helpful barks along the way too!
Farmer Phil has been busy doing more spraying after we received rain again on Friday. It's mainly just self sown wheat from harvest time which has sprouted. Easy to get rid of with Roundup.
