Hello friends and family
The weather goddess shone on us again this week – clear skies and light breezes. It was, however, chilly, and no more so than at Yoga on Monday morning. The hall refused to warm up and it was a case of either freezing to the spot or attempting the poses with cold muscles. As a result, I was quite sore on Tuesday.
It made the afternoon escape even more enjoyable as I left home with Jan, Robbie, Michelle and Charlie on the job (I did rescue one penguin first!). Marian and I drove to Dunedin for the funeral of Shona McTavish. She was a doyen of a bygone time and her send-off was a loving dance performed by friends and family. She was not one to value stereotypes so now I have drunk champagne in a Presbyterian church hall!
On Wednesday I was back off to Dunedin again, this time with Robbie, to talk about mosquito proofing enclosures for penguins. There is an advantage in having dead rat odour in the truck still – no one wants to travel in it! We met with representatives from other penguin groups and hopefully added value to the conversation.
On Thursday while I was analysing blood, Jan and Robbie rescued another penguin. This was another young one with a sore throat. I now have 2 in care. I actually did some cleaning on Friday and Hiltrun came up for the rounds on Saturday. We only got 10 mm of rain in June – lets hope it does not all arrive at once.
Have a great week!
