Perhaps I should have titled this multi-tasking at the Goat Show.
It was the last weekend in April, so for the third year running, Renata, David Abigail and I could be found at the Prince Of Wales Showgrounds in Bendigo, surrounded by boer goats, woodturners, saanen goats, chrysanthemums, cashmere goats, giant pumpkins [309 kilograms!! ] angora goats, fabulous food, mini goats, local food producers, nubian goats … and alpacas.
We were basically there to pad out the ‘exhibits’, do a favour for our favourite goat gurus Pete-and-Brenda, and to add a bit of Ye Olde Worlde local colour.
I took one of the upright [castle] spinning wheels and spun appropriately goat-y cashmere/mohair, Nadie was demonstrating supported spinning using a spindle turned by a local Bendy bloke by the name of Jeff, who, we are reliably informed, was there amongst the woodturners, [ shame we couldn’t remember the name of Tara’s supplier of wonderful turned thingies ]
As you can see from the video, Nadie has fully mastered the art of Mummy multi-tasking, although she feels this wasn’t her BEST spinning, given that she couldn’t see what the heck she was doing over Abby.
Call me biased if you like, but I think she’s pretty damn impressive.
