Drizzly rain ( not nearly enough ) on Monday early so I got sewing time. I now have got the outside row of little squares on and am ready to add white borders.
Today is the day the old back door is out and the new door is being put in. So far so good I think.
( Lots of banging, sawing, chiselling and mess ) Of course it is not straight forward but R and the builder bloke are nutting it out . Photos when complete.
I had a lovely time at my friend's birthday dinner, last Thursady. Under the table where I was sitting was Guide dog Charlie.
Seen here looking out to memorial Park, when he went for some air.
He is on holiday with his "foster parents," as his blind Dad and Mum ( not blind ) are away in Wellington at a Bowls Tournament. By coincidence I happen to know both his parents and have worked with his Dad when he was still partially sighted. He was strapping kiwifruit pallets then, in a packhouse where I used to audit. His Mum was on the Office staff at Zespri when I was there as field staff. They own and work a Kiwifruit Orchard and he is able to do a surprising amount of kiwifruit work just by feel. They also pack their Kiwifruit at the same packhouse we do and as it happens I will be seeing them soon. I will be able to report that Charlie was quite happy and very, very well behaved when he went out to Dinner. His blind Dad also sails.
