Happy New Year friends and family
I enjoyed my Christmas day, visiting Anderson’s Lagoon and Jan in the morning and then just chilling in the afternoon. The weather was glorious, and I always enjoy catching up with Dot and the family.
On Monday morning I uplifted the chick that I had been feeding at the nest for 6 days and discovered that it had not been putting on weight in that time – I was the only one feeding it!
I brought it in then, for company for the young chick that came down from Christchurch. They both spend most of their time sleeping. So far, so good. On Tuesday Robbie and I did the rounds and neither of the parents were home – they were probably both hungry.
All went well for the rounds on Thursday, and I picked Dan up from the bus in the afternoon. On Friday we dressed the front windows in the lounge. Last night we went to the tavern for tea and puppysat Roxy, Jan’s dog, who has taken a shine to Dan.
Today we will go to the Bluffs and cut the vines off at least one tree!
Happy New Year
