I ran away from teaching to the country to grow veggies. There are also some chooks and a pair of troublesome goats who were so much trouble they had to go! My simple green life isn't always as simple or as green as I'd like...but I keep trying!

Guest Blogger

Today, I would like to introduce you to a guest blogger.  
His name is Rohan and he is seven.  
Here is what he has to say about Granny Camp.

At granny camp, there was heaps and heaps of sewing. There were at least 10 games of Mastermind, and a few games of Scrabble and Upwords and more. 

We were walking down the creek with the two goats until Bazza and Bubba saw another white goat and we ended up with an extra goat. So we were walking past some steps and then I walked down halfway until Grandma said to come up and the extra goat went all the way down, so we went walking and hoped that we lost it, but he found his way back to us.  Grandma, Nicholas, the goats and me went the short cut, while Gemma, Auntie Heather, Auntie Vera, Ashley and Sarah went the long way, and Grandma, Nicholas, and me went down to the goats house and we put the goat in his front yard and got down to two goats. We met the others halfway down the street and went home.   

I was at home after the walk and I lit the fire this is how to light a fire: 
Step 1. You will need six pages of newspaper (not glossy paper) and scrunch it up singley and put it in the fire. 
Step 2. You will need skinny short slices of wood and criss-cross it on the newspaper. 
Step 3.  You need matches and you always strike the match away from this.

Step 4. When you have lit the match you need to put the flames on the edge of the newspaper and you are done. 

I wish you could come to Granny Camp too.  
It is so fun.


  1. Yes, I sure wish I could come to Granny Camp, too! Sounds like real fun! :)

  2. What a wonderful post, Rohan. You are so lucky to have such a special Granny. Would you like to have your own blog one day?
