Disappearing off the face of the earth for large amounts of time seems to be something I am really talented at.
I guess thats what happens when you're just a busy wee bee most of the time.
So for those who didn't know the Winton A & P show was on last weekend and I have to credit the committee for an amazing day.
You would all be so proud of me as I managed to leave the beer tent twice.
That morning was probably the earliest I'd been up on a Saturday (8.15am) when I didn't have to work.
Oh the joy of saggy eyes and that morning hair do.
I was up early and headed out to play shepherd with one of my mates.
Well, really the story went more like this.
I sat in the truck laughing at him, as his dogs managed to do everything but what he told them to.
If he is reading this, I apologise but I don't think I've heard that many curse words in a day in a long time.
This month I also attended the Edendale Crank Up.
Now I'm one for the mud and tractors and anything else that smells rural but that was a lot of tractors.
Again, I have to credit the organisers of the event for the fantastic job.
I got to know them and appreciate the time and effort they put in to run the event.
Here's a peice of valuable piece of information - they are all ready planning next year's event.
Now, besides looking forward to having a nice relaxing Saturday this week, where I will be up early and attempting to fall off the face of the earth for a bit I am counting down the days to this year's Southern Field Days at Waimumu, Gore.
If you are there, come and have a yarn.
I don't bite and I promise not to wear high heels.
