Unfortunately, the last few days that we've been staying on the farm, we've had some health problems. Not us, but a member of the family is a bit anxious about having new people around which in turn is causing some problems. However, instead of getting better, it's worsening. Brian and I were thinking that it may be best for use to leave. As they say, like minds think alike, and the family also came to the same conclusion. It's a shame as they had so much that they could teach us and we were enjoying the work, but well- being must be put first in their family.

A bit of quick changing and thinking had to take place. We still have over a week before we fly out to NZ that we did not make plans for. But like a good Sheppard, Mike offered to contact some nearby HelpX hosts to see if they would take us for a week or so. After talking us up, another couple were willing to take us that very day.  Bags were quickly packed and we were herded off to Yass to meet our new hosts, sitting at the McDonalds waiting, a bit like lost sheep.

Funny how things can change so quickly. We're now staying on a merino superfine wool farm! With over 1000 acres of rolling pasture land.  We got acquainted over some wine while we watched the sun set and dined on our first meal of kangaroo meat!
