Neil and Suzi's house at Ellerston in the Hunter Valley
Daddy Neil has the magic touch with Katelyn.
Mummy Suzi is already out and about walking the baby up and down the drive to their house.
We arrived in Scone a week ago to be met by Suzi, Neil and baby Katelyn. I can't believe how quickly the days are sailing by! The countryside here, in the Hunter Valley, is beautiful and very peaceful. The nearest house to Neil and Suzi's is one kilometre away and their driveway is so long we don't even hear the occasional passing car! We have hardly moved from the house. We have been to town once to shop and take Katelyn for her hearing test (passed with flying colours - naturally); and to Ellerston twice, once to the little shop there and once to the club to have dinner, but as it is only 15 minutes down the road to the main buildings, it is hardly a mission!
Dinner at the Ellerston Club
Suzi has recovered well from the traumas of labour and Katelyn is quite delightful. We keep busy with household chores like herding the chickens into the veggie garden (see photo of David the Chicken Herder!) and Suzi and I have been baking. On Tuesday we will go to town again to take Katelyn for her first visit to the clinic to be weighed and measured.
