So obviously, presents given to anyone born over winter this year will be a hot water bottle cover. Here is one for my neighbour. I filled the water bottle with hot water before giving it to her because it is so nice to be given something that radiates heat and is not a kitten.
Here it is sitting in the big basket waiting to be taken across the fence.
This weekend has also seen that beautiful weather cusping autumn and winter. We took Gaga for a walk on the farm to see the fire crystal tree, a fallen down, sprawling eucalyptus whose dried sap the boys collect. It's a very exciting place to go.
Isn't it surprising when you find a koala in New Zealand.
Here are Hugo and Gaga striding out across the farm with their tramping sticks (or tramper-leans as Mum renamed them).
And then the long walk home. Note our little chook shed to the left. Magic happens in there - I will show you another day.
Lots and lots of love,
