    Riegersburg, Austria (Day Fifteen)

    July 5, 2017 in Austria ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Exhausting day of work, my legs are still jelly! Cleaned out the sheds, then Q got stuck into whipper-snippering the vine area and the peach garden while I had the task of lawnmowing where the ride on couldn't get to, it was so steep and hilly... I slipped over several times including into stinging nettles OUCH 😤😭 We then had lunch then I had a siesta 😊 then I got back into losing a bit more around the house while Q finished his part. Tireddd!Read more

    Riegersburg, Austria (Day Sixteen)

    July 6, 2017 in Austria ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Cruisy morning, cleaned out the sheds, weighed the ladies, then I went with Philip into town to get groceries while Q finished some more of the peach garden snipperring. We then had lunch, I had a siesta again 😊😊 In the afternoon we took the big boys for a walk, rain kept coming on and off so we waited for that to clear then headed off. The boys weren't themselves so we decided to do the very short track, we hadn't got very far when mine got totally spooked and I had to let him go AND HE BOLTED. I've never seen an alpaca run so fast. We quickly turned around to take the others back, while seeing the other alpaca running up above us on the hill, how did he get there?! I ventured back into the forest but couldn't see or hear a thing so I headed back to the house, lucky I did because everyone was looking for me now! They found Rivaldo down on the fence line to the paddock THANK GOD! Back to the house for our final dinner, a delicious roast chicken.Read more

    Up similar time... 😴😴😴 Cleaned out alpaca sheds and topped up their hay. Got stuck into the woodpile until lunch time 😫😧 another nap over lunch as buggered again. 😭😭😭 Then we started on fixing the troughs but the cracks are so bad we'll have to use cement so that's to do another day. Then we were going to weigh the alpacas but the scales wasn't working so there went that idea. By the time we packed all that up, we fed the alpacas and gave them their medicine and it was soon 630pm. Yay! Time for a beer 🍺Read more

    Lazy morning again, watched Mighty Ducks 2 😎😎 in the late afternoon we went to the chocolate factory! 🍫🍫🍫😋😋😍😍 The tour started with a movie and then around the factory we went. Through the beans, then liquid chocolate but sooo bitter 🤢🤢🤢 finally we started getting to the good stuff, the normal tasting chocolate fountains and lots of flavours. Then we tasted hard chocolate with different % and milk. Then to the hot chocolate room! You pick a flavour off the little flying cable cars and then drop it into your hot milk 😋😋 next was hard chocolate again but with nuts, fruit etc. By this stage I was definitely starting to hit a wall 🤢 last was the chocolate train OMG. By now it had to be really good for me to try... Pumpkin chocolate got me! Then to shop... As sick as I felt now... I knew I'd be able to eat some the next day 😂😂😂🍫Read more

    Started work about 9am, first job was cleaning up the sheds where the alpacas sleep 🤢😷☣️💩 poop everywhere! We shovel it all up, then soak it up with sawdust and restock the hay. Next job is clearing the wood pile, we worked on that until lunch at 1230pm. I had a nap as I was buggered 😴☀️🌡️We started on the raspberries at 4pm, weeding the garden. Afterwards we weighed all the alpacas. Some of the weights were out so we'll try again in a few days. We then gave the alpacas dinner. Then time for a shower, our dinner and relax time! 😊 It was a pretty hot night so I slept on the couch. 🌡️😴🌡️Read more
