I did the school pick-up for the last time in a while. I no sooner parked the car, the temperature dropped, and the rain pelted down. The large umbrella was no use, the wind too strong, so it was just held over my head, almost closed.
I couldn’t manage to find a place without those power lines, and no time to drive up one of the higher streets. Ellie spends some time on the rail, looking and waiting for a bird. She doesn’t do much hunting, and there was great excitement
and praise one night when she brought in a largish mouse. Told us what she had caught, mouse got away, and when it was put outside, George pounced, grabbed and ran. Well done Ellie!!!
The Cateye spot prize for the Junior 4th place team was this pair of socks. Team members decided to give them to Josh, as he had the fastest lap time .They have been worn several times, and we all laughed at the words on the soles.
WEATHER WARNING … Snow on the Desert Road, tonight, tomorrow morning, Friday as well.Hugh will be here ,as I go home tomorrow. Staying with the family has been truly wonderful, and after many years of having to be at home this has been a real treat. However my man has missed me , and after 50 years together, I feel so lucky about this.
Here he is on a track in the Ruahines.
