The Farmer Probably Just Wants a Shag.....

I follow many blogs thinking that I will always get time to read and comment on all of them.
Alas that does not happen very much.

I have recently come across a blog

which I have found great reading and love the way it is written.

This Farmer's Wife certainly tells it how it is.

She is a city girl who moved to country (outback) and met her Farmer.

Women on the land will relate to what she writes, all in good nature.

I especially love her post Farmer Probably Just Wants a Shag for any prospective entrants for The Farmer Wants a Wife . I would tell them to read this first.

Is It You?

Bushbelles giveaway has been drawn and the winner has been emailed.

Is it you?

Thank you so much for commenting and entering.

I wanted to send everyone a little something.

I certainly have some stylish followers.....

I will let you know who the winner was shortly.
