Hello friends and family
Week 2 of my recovery and I am very bored! Having my stitched foot elevated certainly reduced the discomfort for my foot but my butt had other ideas! The weather has been calm and cold, but not freezing. The lighthouse painters have had a few days off.
On Wednesday, I went to the tip with waste metal and caught up with Alison. After our discussion, I hope to host a predator trap library here where locals can borrow traps when they want to do some predator control and bring them back when they are done. I hope that dog fences can become part of this for those people who cannot afford to dog proof their sections.
On Friday, I went to Oamaru and had my stitches out. I must wear a dressing for another couple of weeks while it heals over. During the week, I got more fish and more meat so our new freezer is quite full. If I have to go into it, I think I need to switch it off as it has a big fan blasting the cold air about.
Yesterday was sunny and calm but made challenging by a power cut that lasted until after lunch. A transformer had blown up and the technicians were away for the long weekend. I am lucky that I have my camper to cook with when this happens.
Today has started off wet but is going to clear.
Have a great week!
