Hi Rory - great to hear you are making the most of the hols and that you got do do some sneaking about with torches and snuggling in the big bed... it is something i feel grateful for everyday- when the girls climb into bed with us - we are reading the Secret Garden to Isla at the moment and a chapter or two before you start the day seems like just the way to go... i tried to take the poodle for a walk in the rain this morning but she was too chicken to come!
Simon has a silkbody top and he thinks it is the noise - good on them for getting you a new one!
love to you all from us here in Whangarei

Hi Rory,
Well the school holidays are shooting past, and as everyone else has commented, it hasn't been that nice here.  I have been helping out on the farm, feeding sileage, moving stock etc, and have had to rug up in about 4 layers plus and oilskin rain coat, complete with gloves, scarf and hat.  think i will be glad to return to school office where it is nice and warm.  The builders have been very busy, got the new roof on, and the new entrance in the corridor is a gaping hole at the moment.  You will be amazed at the changes when you come back.  See you soon.

Hi di hi Gardiners.  Well I was woken up by all the rain and couldn't get back to sleep so here I am at the computer!  Korie was very dissapointed that he couldn't come to visit on Monday, he tried to tell me that he was well amongst all the coughing, sniffing and sneezing however he is slowly getting on top of the winter gremlins, we feel totally ripped off these holidays - at the beginning we had so many plans that have had to fall off on the way.  One of the highlights for Korie these holidays was to go to the snow with nana Morrison and his Hamilton cousins (he has never boon to the snow) which sadly hasn't happened because of this nasty cold he has :(  How exciting that Kody got to stay over for the night, I little bit of normal must be a great feeling.  Well I might trot off to bed, take care all, Love Kathryn xox

hi guys, yep the weather has got wintery here thats for sure, we almost got blown off our hillside this week the winds made our house shake and shudder, the trampoline now has no safety net and no safety pads - the wind took care of all that with a hiss and a roar!! The huge hayshed just down the road lost all its roof and wrapped it around the neighbours fence - lucky for him cos he lives in a caravan only meters from where it was dumped. Sounds like you have gotten busy again with the tramping and exploring, great to hear you are braving the cold and back into it.  Mikayla just cut her first top front tooth on Saturday - she is in lots of pain with it - and has a really snotty nose now to go with her awful cough - i'd hate to go thru all that again - poor baby.  anyhow take care lots of love the naki cousins

Hey Sam and Rory - wow, you guys have definitely done a lot on your hols!!  Dad must have the skin of a rhino to be out and about in shorts in the snow - crikey!  Not sure if you are still on school hols now (yay) or if you have to go back to school (boo) but either way, hope you both have a great week!  Take care and lots of love, Auntie Teri and Uncle Graham - xxxx

Hi there guys, nice to see the weather hasn't slowed y'all down! Korie is just coming out of a three day tummy bug, I thought he was a skinny weasel before - well now he is skinnier!  Korie would have to agree with Rory about Great Uncle Harrys biscuits, griffins super wines rock and if I would let him he would eat half a packet in one sitting!  With a hot milo of course and a spoon to catch the dunks that drop off!  However he is on a fairly boring diet until we know his tummy is back to normal (super wines are hidden in the cupboard behind the weetbix till further notice).  Ooops Leigh sorry to hear about the unfortunate accident with Sparky, couldn't help but have a little chuckle, when we moved back up from Rotorua we didn't have our cat in a cage and she peed all over my foot yick that was gross - she always travels in a cage now!  Take care Love Kathryn and Korie xox
