If you say it quickly it doesn't sound so bad. And it was hot at 5 o'clock this morning when we were out in the paddock getting sheep in and it was still hot AND dusty at 6.30 when we were drafting the sheep in the yards. Yes, it is 40 degrees and those wacky farmers are shearing! I have been keeping them supplied with drinks, chilled watermelon and orange wedges. They had pikelets with jam and cream for morning tea and lots more drinks with lunch. Tom will stop at 3 o'clock to go and milk and will finish the rest of the sheep tomorrow when it will AGAIN be 40 degrees. Crazy days!
