Morning all. A monkey, please don't bypass the South Island on your travels to our beautiful country. Come and stay.
Re residency. I am led to believe that it is easier to gain residency if you have a vocation that New Zealand wants. We have an Indonesian girl living with us, and she is a top chef, as in has won awards, was head hunted by one of our finest yadda yadda ya............. Anyway she is still waiting to hear, and it has been over six months since she applied. Apparently chefs are sort after here.
It was sad that Zoe and her family have had to leave, and I suppose one never knows if it will swing positively in your favour or not. You will never know if you don't give it a go. I am hoping for a positive outcome for our wee boarder.
On a chillier note.......... Major frost going on here this morning. I am so pleased that I still have the wee tomato plants under the eaves of the house.
Middle DD competed in the barrel racing at the rodeo this weekend. Not a brilliant outcome althou she did it and the horse will be getting better with the noise, and people, and other horses etc..... She is still limping from when the horse fell back on top of her, so I am hoping that she hasn't done too much damage to those ligaments.
Suns out and it's looking like its gonna be a beauty day. Here's hoping the wind stays away
