Roger is home for a couple of weeks, and although the weather has been a bit dodgy, we managed to get out to the Auckland Zoo today for an awesome time. As well as seeing all our favourite animals, the girls got right up close with some of them, much to their delight.

Okay, so I knew you guys had moved, but it appears you have moved to Auckland! Or somewhere NEAR Auckland. Perhaps we can meet up sometime? I'd love that!

Hi Hannah :) Yep, we are near Auckland, in Waiuku, just out of Pukekohe. Rog is running the Foodtown there. Would love to catch up sometime!

Oh wow, how cool! We are about equal ways away from Auckland, then. You south, me north. Will definitely have to arrange to meet at the zoo or somewhere "central" sometime. Maybe in spring when the weather is more predictable, and the kids can run around and play. You've got my email, eh?

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
