    Hello! Fabulous I'm glad I'm not the only one on here!

    We have just started sowing. We mainly crop but run sheep as well.

    Where abouts are you all located?
    We are in rural NSW. Not too isolated but isolated enough lol. 1/2hr from nearest town, an hour from a proper town with Woolworths etc.

    How many children do you have?
    I have one da who is almost 2. We have been trying for our second but no luck yet.

    Do you also work?
    I am a teacher and work in a school half and hour from home. I'm full time at the moment on Kindergarten so it's a bit hectic. Thank goodness for school holidays!

    Not yet but it's on the cards. We currently live in the middle of farming country, surrounded by stations, everyone we know are farmers etc, just waiting til we can make the jump ourselves.
    We are pretty remote. Our nearest grocery store (an IGA) is 2 hours away, it's 3-4 hours from a Woolies/Coles or Maccas.

    We're predominantly cropping but do have some sheep as well.
    We're in WA and have three kids (4, 8, 10) and sound similar to you @Em9 - 20 mins from town and then an hour to the IGA and Target Country (The BIG shops )
    I've had a lot of health issues over the last few years so that's made life interesting but looking at maybe doing an EA course next year because my baby will be at school full time.
