Weather on Tassie Farm has been a little like the weather in the Higgledy-Piggledy Farm ebook, ‘The Dairy First Ice Cream Christmas’ – Topsy-turvy and upside down as if Tasmania were in the northern hemisphere. Everything but snow has been thrown at Taswegians over the past week – from sideways rain, inside-out umbrella winds and the demand for roaring log fires. If you’d like to purchase a copy of ‘The Dairy First Ice Cream Christmas’ (or any of the Higgledy-Piggledy Farm ebooks), just click on the widgets on the right hand side of this blog for your free sample. The ebooks are only $1.99 and $3.99 each and 50% of sales will be donated to the Cambodian Children’s Fund (30% iBookskstore royalties and  20% authors’ costs).

Lovely weather for ducks

winter in Tassie
On a bleak winter’s day, a friend’s mum often says, ‘It’s darker than the inside of a cow.’
Weather is the most universal conversation starter. And there’s nothing like a saying to help you remember weather predictions.
Mares’ tails and mackerel scales make tall ships take in their sails.
When spider’s webs in air do fly, the spell will soon be very dry.
If a goose honks high, fair weather; if a goose honks low, foul weather.
If a rooster crows on going to bed, you may rise with a watery head.
