A busy week fencing

Well its been a busy week for myself and Lisa, we are also renting 4 acres of land as well as our own 5 & half, the gentleman that owns the land ask us if we would put the fencing up for him, of course we said we would, after all its going to benefit us more when we get our Alpaca's. He had all the kit we needed including a machine to bore the holes in the ground, surely this was going to be a nice easy job!!
How wrong we were, after setting the machine in the ground for the first hole, it starts to drive its self into the ground, fantastic, oh spoke to soon! 4" into the ground and it stops going down anymore, I remove the machine clear the hole of soil to reveal solid clay that the machine wont touch, so its down to breaking it up as best as we can with a spade and try the process again, another 3" and its machine out, spade back in! only another 70 holes to go! oh I forgot 2 new gate posts to put in too. :)
Lily our daughter has also been busy, this Saturday 13th was our village carnival with the theme of "Aliens" with Lily only being 20 mths of age she found it all a bit strange, why have mum and dad painted my face green! and put me in strange clothes, she was not amused.
