Hello friends and family
We got a bit of rain this week and so it was inside jobs for me. On Monday Jan came and we got the trap round done and the new numbers installed onto the nest boxes just before the rain came. Jan also released foot bird who is one of the vocal ones. I have no penguins here, just Dianna in soft release.
The top inside job for me was to make a space for the microscope. This involved a skittle drama where I cleared a shelf to replace a desk to move into the lounge for the microscope. To make space for the desk I have decommissioned the china cabinet. All of this uncovered a heap of treasures to recycle – the only problem is that they were all small so there was a lot of sorting without much progress being made!
Wednesday was my day for the Top tip shop. How quickly the months are passing. On Thursday Jan and Robbie came and we were able to complete the roof of the hospital. Hiltrun came up on Friday night and Jan joined us for chain-sawing down the hill for Saturday morning. We went to the Moeraki colony after lunch and it was very slippery, so I will be walking down the hill for the next little while. I am glad we went because we found 3 sheep among our small trees – not a good mix!
Have a great week.
