Great waffle making.
Collected more pears from those squawking lorikeets . DGF rang to see if Iíd like to finish off making tomato relish and onion jam ! So we did ! This was for us to have some to keep and give to others . I batch of relish prepared , a double batch of onion jam prepared and started to cook . Home for a few hours ( my cooking ) then back to put relish on and finish cooking onion jam . We were amazed that both ended up ready at the same time so lots of jars boiling on the stove top . We have a great time doing this together each year . Jared them up and home to finish off what had made at home a spiced pear jam 2 jars . Put the batch of stewed pears in the fridge . Also I had made at home a brownie slice for shearling .

Itís been a big week , DS leaving to go to O week for uni ! Shearing and yesterday a huge fire north east of us . Thankfully not near us . Our wool classer had to leave at lunchtime due to fire approaching their property, our rousie didnít come today as there are very close to fires . So two people down today ( I have even been pressing wool ) cooked lunch . Yesterday was so so hot . I must have left the car going or something 3 hours later I went to car it was super hot and it sounded like the aircon was going , but I couldnít turn anything off ( the car was not going as such ) the rear lights were on ! Completely flat battery . Car assist came ! Jump started and I had to leave it going for two hours . It is ok but a few issues that will not work all because I had flat battery. Thank full that itís at this point and is going . DH has been the wool classer and and presser , ( 2wool pressers ) skirts the wool etc . And the shearerís thought today was a good day to ramp up their sheep numbers! Oh I even managed to catch the BBQ on fire !!

DS never got to go on fire brigade duty . Others stepped in and they are needing less units . Saturday is not looking good with high winds again . Traveled home silly leaving early afternoon the west gate is bad single lanes and so so many trucks . Home to do my jobs and feed the boys !! Earlier today DD and I looked for a dress for her ! No luck but managed to finally find some jeans for her . DS fitted his light for Ute today , they bailed up all the rams wool and crutching ! DH is a bit worn out .

Chookie all good thank you . Not much media information on the fires but we are fine . The small town of Pamonal is not good many houses lost . I was on the road onTuesday to Melbourne, not a great trip very windy . Massive thunder near Ballarat that caused a small fire . Tomorrow DS will go with the local firebigade to help put out spot fires . This is a huge thing ( for me Iím concerned) but part of being with brigade. Yes honestly itís what you do but Mother Nature is also very unpredictable. Proud of him but also a huge thing too . The fires are not going to go out for a long while where they are . The most work has to be done by air as itís rugged country that you canít get into . After being through a major fire 16 years ago it never leaves you , but the communityís are there to help , incredibly amazing support.

Yes Iím going to miss DS . We went to hardware store to get stews and beading for DS canopy ( inside layout work ) . Also some Adblue for my car ( this stresses me out when it comes up saying to add it , just annoying but no way do I drive the car if it says to add it , a timing this due to doing a late service!!) so hot today .

Another warm day ahead . Stressing now as DS leaves soon and really he has a lot of packing and jobs to do . Last night he spent a lot of time with the canopy ( box ) to go on his use to fit a fridge inside it . DH is worn out trying to get lots of harvest equipment cleaned and put away ! Lucky DS is helping . We are feeding lambs too so most nights DH is out doing this .
