Stronger together ... For Maori, by Maori

A travel blog entry by kerrynjones


... a very positive rating from ERO which everyone in the organisation is thrilled about. On the day we visit the child care centre there is a special lunch for families being prepared and I meet a parent who takes a break from the kitchen to discuss the very personalised and supportive approach the teachers at the centre have taken to helping herself and her child make the transition from home to centre. There is a beautiful display on the wall of a tree with each leaf detailing ...

Counting down the days

... to the shed. Hef has gone back. The lambs aren't great but he's getting numbers on them so he doesn't mind too much. I went to the cafe for breakfast. They had free wifi so I FaceTime'd Michelle and Loz. Lovely to see them and Neil and Grum of course. Had a good chuckle and catch up. Spent the rest of the day reading and watching films. The French boys went to a show today in Wairoa. Loïc text and said he was in the intermediate final and Loïc and Thebaut made the ...

... s a bit of commotion over who is with who. Nobody wants Hayley in their gang, so she's to'd and fro'd from van to van, until Trish says "no just Elaine and Mahalia with me, your with Jonette!"

And in he strolls, with no shoes! Sheep muck, grass, you name it, he had it on his feet. We did about 112 ewes and then had to move to another shed. It was the same shed that we were at today. We set up; it was full wool and the fleeces are ugly! There is one rousie on pick up; ...

A little place called 'home'

A travel blog entry by khughes17


... a lovely day although we do go through some showers. On arrival to Hastings, we go to 'The Warehouse' to get some shampoo and air freshner for the car. Hef says it smells like a curry house!! We make our way to Waipukarau, to the holiday park. Colin, our shearing contractor, says he has spoken to them so they will be expecting us. He said the park is nice and we have a caravan booked. We arrive at the holiday park around 4.30pm and the man ...
