Not only am I a new blogger on this site, but I recently started a new life. Although I’m not sure yet what format my blog is going to take, I’m sure a big part of it will contain some of the joys and frustrations of a new life, in a new place, with new people.
I moved 2 months ago from a relatively busy place (Hartbeespoort) very close to Pretoria and Johannesburg (2 of the biggest and more well-known cities in South Africa), to a small rural town where I know very few people. Why, I hear you ask? Well, because of LOVE, of course! 🙂
So here I am, in this new town called Nylstroom, and I’m trying to find a niche for myself and a few new friends will be welcome too!
A long-standing dream of my boyfriend was to get some cattle for a small farm he has outside of Nylstroom, and on Monday his dream came true.
Now we have 8 pregnant cows and 2 calves and we are very excited about that! The scary thing is that neither of us know a whole lot (nothing) about being cattle farmers, but surely it can’t be to hard? I mean they eat grass, right? And we’ve got more than enough of that! 😉 Only joking – we’ll have to learn as we go along and maybe there are a few fellow bloggers with more knowledge who can give us a few helpful hints.
In the evening we went out to the farm to see if the cows and calves have calmed down after the move, and we had this absolutely amazing sunset that I just had to capture, and now I just have to share it. On our tiny little piece of land, we’ve had quite a few unforgettable moments, and this was definitely one of those.
Well, that is a whole lot of changes I have to cope with – from city gal to country bumpkin, from being surrounded by friends to knowing hardly anyone, from estate agent to farmer… Phew! Forgive me if in future I cry a little on your shoulders…
