I love to play the pokies, and I'm so good at it (read lose so much money here) that the Country Club Casino gave me a free nights accommodation and a free meal to use in September. So Farmboy and I decided to use it on Sunday night and treat ourselves to a night out. We had a very peaceful room on the ground floor looking out to the golf course and a really lovely meal at the Links restaurant. Unfortunately it was Seafood Buffet night and I LOVE seafood. So I think I may have overindulged just a bit, but seafood's good for you right? MMMMMM...... Cold poached Atlantic Salmon, fresh local prawns, calamari, mussels, oysters etc etc etc, and then of course there was cheese and dessert. You'd have had to have a will of iron to resist it all, and of course I didn't, but I did try to limit the damage to a certain degree. So with all that in mind I don't think a .2 kilo gain this week is too bad.
So I picked up Cityboy at the airport yesterday morning, did the whole retail therapy thing (mind you how you can call grocery shopping retail therapy I don't know ;-), and eventually got home. Cityboy had a new plaid shirt on that he insists is a real farm shirt, so armed with shirt, borrowed gumboots, and akubra off he went to feed the cows. When Farmboy got home he took Cityboy under his wing and they went out to cut firewood and ride the quad bike. So City boy now has a new name Apprentice Farmboy, or Junior Farmboy, haven't quite figured out which one I like the best yet.

AF (Apprentice Farmboy) and I made 2 dozen muffins (he's a growing lad and needs the carbs), and got dinner prepared. So day one of the great AF Adventure was over. We've arranged for Farmboy to take AF to a local dairy tonight to see how real farming is done. I think he's gonna enjoy that.
