Well the drought has well and truly broken. We've had three days of rain. My 25 000 litre water tank is overflowing and our dam is finally filling.
Which brings us to an urgent problem. The dam needs fencing. I guess it's not really a dam as we haven't dammed anything except a swale. It's more a waterhole. But whatever it is, when it's full it will be well over my five-year-old's head and a perfect drowning hole, being only about 30 metres from the house.
It looks like I won't be getting a milking shed or a movable pig house, or a deck or a new car. But we will have the subdivision completed, safe children and lots of trees planted.
