Up the Mount

Hello Peeps,

Miss H starts her practicum (or placement) with under 2 year olds on Monday, so I will have lots of time to get into mischief  be a good sheepie while she is away. I will keep you updated on the trouble fun things I do. Hee...hee...hee...

Today Miss H and her friend climbed the Mount (that's what all the locals call it - it is actually called Mount Maunganui). I was not invited because Miss H said she didn't think sheep would be allowed up the mountain and it is a reserve.

But what did she find at the start of the walk!
"What do you mean sheep aren't allowed here?" baaaaaaa-ed this fellow before running off to join his many friends.
Harumph! Next time I will go too!

This is the view of Mount Maunganui beach - which Miss H and her friend swam (fully clothed!) after their hot and sweaty walk. 

 Beautiful views of the beach (left) and Matakana Island (right). 

This is the view of Tauranga City...

...and the Mount Maunganui area. 

Pronunciation hint: "au" is pronounced "oh". Syllables are split by the vowels - e.g. Tau/ra/nga

In between studying

Hello Peeps,

How are you all?

Miss H and I have settled into our new home. I've been feeling homesick, and have even missed Snowy! But Miss H has kept me company and I'm feeling much better now. 

While Miss H has been busy writing the first two chapters of a MASSIVE research report, I have been snuggled up reading. 

And I must say, this is my new favourite book of all time. 

Aren't the puppies adorable?

Miss H has been stitching - these are two that she did parts of in class. (It was a very boring class...)

She has also started on this Christmas stitchery. There are four of them and they make up a mini quilt. She hopes to have them all finished by Christmas.

Mostly though Miss H crochets in class as it is easier and helps her to focus - really it does.
(Note: she is a good student who takes lots of notes in class and stops crocheting to write down what she needs to; and she knows which classes not to crochet in - scary lecturer!).

Look at how much she has done on the Mother's blanket! Hopefully she will have it finished by November.

Love From
