We had some drinks at Starks and invited everyone down. It was difficult because it was a school night so a few people couldn't make it but it was good to catch up with the night owls up there.
Wednesday morning we headed back to the farm after a few stops in Hamilton (stocked up on bargains at Save Mart!) and Havelock to drop off shoes. We found Marley in the dark in the neighbours paddock at the kids had left us a note and a drawing because they were off at a fancy dress party when we arrived. Marley came running over to us when she heard us calling. But she had been hanging out with Dennis' lambs and had actually been acting like a sheep and eating grass. Very happy about that. She's been outside more since we got back and now that we have Gizmo, they can go into the shed paddock and be sheepy. I still worry about the rhodos though.
Also, the puriri moths have arrived back. They all flung themselves onto the deck the other night and haven't bothered to leave (possibly because they are all dead now). I will give you some interesting facts about them next time.
Marty and Angus have gone fishing in the river. I highly doubt they will catch anything but who knows.
Anyway, lunch is ready so I better go
