A light-hearted, often hilarious account of life as a mother with a young family on a small NZ dairy farm. The author left her banking career to marry a dairy farmer. She herself was raised a farm girl and vowed never to marry a farmer. This book is a series of vignettes, short humorous tales that relate incidents of daily life on the farm. Bridgette shares the load with her husband, milking cows, delivering calves, mucking out and - always smelling of cows, even when she has to go into town. She becomes a mother and the various antics of three children flow in and out of the stories. This is an honest, heart-warming and entertaining read that will appeal to mothers everywhere.
