Kids at Work – A Fiasco in the Vines

It is a gorgeous day today in the sunshine capital of the country  – no offence at being second Nelson, or not even in the running Auckland 😦


And so we have sent our kids out to the vineyard to earn their keep.  They are removing all the old training posts-  now that the vines are a few years old they can stand on their own.  It can be harder than it looks because old vine tendrils have wrapped around the posts making them harder to pull out.  I crept up to get some video footage only to discover that they had decided on a bit of division of labour.  One would push the wheelbarrow while the other pulled out the posts.  This method is not the most efficient, but while output was a little low, staff morale seemed high…until the end of the clip where Finn gets a splinter and reverts in an instant from the singing labourer back to grizzly boy with cold.  Check it out

    Nice to see that you have your succession plan in place already! Your kids are gorgeous. Love Finn’s taste in music. Perhaps it is a reflection of what he is exposed to at home! Keep up the good work, loving the fact I can tune in each day and consume another slice of your literary brilliance. The mixture of content is amazing. Go for gold Fiasco!

    Yep, early retirement here I come 😉
    Thanks Hainesy, but nothing brilliant here, just my ramblings!
