Hey Rory, Sean, Leigh and Sam,  Had lunch with Uncle Hami and Aunty Hilary on Monday; they said you called-in for a cuppa on Sunday.  For my lunch, I tried one of your leftover muffins, the one with the pears.  YUM!  Aunty Hilary always has nice baking too; she is forever spoiling Uncle Hami.  It's so pleasing to know you called-in for a visit.  They think your Grandad Alan is awesome; they have a lot of time for him.  Anyway, take care and have a great week.

Hi Rory, It,s Danielle from Room 18 at DPS.  How was your trip to the zoo?  I heard that you were getting heaps of cards. I wrote some to you.  I had a look at the Rory day photo's and they were really neat.  I went to the Sthn rugby on the weekend and Sthn won.  What have you been doing on the weekends when you are home? Hope that you are feeling ok at the moment. I will write again another time.  From Danielle

Hi dee hi Gardiners, I was having a quick check in during my lunch break and noticed your pictures on the beach brrrrrr.  It was a totally fffreeezing weekend, we went down to the southern rugby club to watch the game and I truly think Kories lips were purple, sipping on coke, eating hot chips and no jacket!!!  Sheesh you 7 year old boys are tough!  Have a great week with your dad Rory!  Take care, love and wellness to you all from Kathryn xox

well hi there guys, just had to send another message to let you know how much snow we had falling at our place yesterday, yep we were fully white and cold too.  logan got to go to a birthday party at friends that live just as high under the mountain as us up carrington rd, and we have photos of the kids sliding around on the deck in the snow with their shorts on while it was snowing - some even braved the elements with bare feet - totally mad i tell you the lot of them!!!!  and then to top it all off we went to my brothers for tea after the party and when we arrived home we just got inside turned the lights on and arghhhhh the power went off !!! so cold and dark we hunted out candles and got the fire restoked and put pots etc of water on top to boil - no baby bottles were ready for poor mikayla -"   but hey we had fun and managed to rough it "up in them thar hills" - us hillbillies are pretty darn good when it comes to no power - it happens a lot up here for some reason.  anyhow today it is really pretty to see all the white snow everywhere.  pleased to hear you are still doing great rory - and hope you have heaps of fun on your long weekend home, love from your naki cousins

Hi Rory & Family,
Hope most of the head itching has stopped by now and that you enjoy your extra day at home tomorrow.  I start my course tomorrow, we don't get Queen's Birthday weekend off until next weekend.
How did the slime go with Dr Laws?  I wish I had kept some for when I came through customs, the man there was quite grumpy and I thought I it might have made him smile.
I found a whoopie cushion this week, so as promised, I'll post it this week.  Try not to cause too much mischief with it when it arrives, but you are most welcome to blame any mischief on me if you wish.
Have a great week.  Miss Barr
