On the weekend the Sky fell over and cried so hard that it RAINED!! We so needed the rain, so THANK YOU!! Thing is due to it having been the most perfect summer and very hot and dry the poor ground is rock hard like concrete so all this rain just sat merrily on top. We had puddles on our back lawn and mini flooding out the front. The drains haven't drained anything for quite some time and our one had even grown some wild plants. Some people might even call them weeds! So my Koru garden was under water for a big part of the weekend, but all is well now and back to normality.
Today I went for a little drive to Karipiro just out of Hamilton past Cambridge, to collect two new girls for the chicken coup. The small one is a Peking Bantam and the other one is an Araucana cross but she will lay the colourful eggs for me. $10 each off Trade Me!! Pretty stoked as they popped perfectly into my cat cage, traveled quite well, and are settling into the coup with the other girls. There is a lot of discussion going on in there at the moment but I am sure they will sort it out. They are females after all. So the Bantam is called Coral, after my God mother who passed away a few years ago. She is the grandmother of my god daughter and the mother of my good friend Leonie. I don't think any of them will mind and I am sure Coral would get a good old giggle out of having a chook named after her. As for the other one well she is called Mrs Wickham, Dorothy, or Dot for short. Named after my lovely old friend Dot who passed away last year at the ripe old age of 96. All my girls are named after good old birds that have passed on.
Last but by no means least, the Man Bag!! Retro Vinyl over nighter for $5 from my local salvo. Hopefully TOF will be impressed with his new over night bag.
