Kerikeri, working weeks

From today I’ll continue writing in English to keep contact with some friends here and, I hope, improve my English as well :-). That’s my super working gears but I forgot wearing the gloves to be complete, rah! sorry ;-)

Edges around the pool house.

Bumper machines.

Edges in the water.

My super gumboots.

Good apple.


So, this week was also a physical week, many things to carry, to pull, to push… We’ve almost finished a part of the outside landscaping and we started the decoration around the pool. I’m going to take some time to shoot some pictures of our work. We are going to plant an long edge, 80 pieces of 50kg maybe. The most difficult part was to put them in the right order because they were growing in a specific order at the nursery.
Finally we did it yesterday and it looks good ouf! Ah! And I have a little story for this week:-). I was going to brush my teeth (very interesting I know) and I kept my tent opened. I came back 5 minutes later and as I enter in it, I heard a noise. What’s that? I turned on my light and discover a big rat, or a rabbit. In fact, it was a possum, right on my sleeping bag and certainly more afroad than me, or maybe not… I went outside, on the other and of the tent to shake it and the possum left it, arf! I’ve hope it didn’t pee onto my sleeping bag but, no that was ok… Until I saw my bread. It was eating my bread through the plastic bag! Bloody possum! Now, I know I have paying attention to my food because this animal is going to come back at anytime. I hadn’t the reflex to take a picture but next time possum, you are going to be flash! New zealand is a very dangerous country haha :-)
