Oops - yet another week has flown by and I haven't kept up with what we have been doing... maybe next week (I seem to have said that before....).
From Monday we had another group of junior high school girls come to stay from Hiroshima as part of their school trip. Despite their visit being less than 24 hours and the fact that it snowed while they were here (we were in t-shirts the other day) .... they never complained and tried everything with screams of "this is so much fun". I never thought lighting a fire could become such a major activity - let alone cutting the wood to go in it! Now all we need to do is get a lot of strong visitors over the wood cutting season and have them pay us for cutting it - that sounds like a great scheme!
The chickens also proved to be a big hit and the brave girl among them managed to catch them no problem, while the others wandered around avoiding the poos. They would definitely be no good on a kiwi farm!
