Lockdown Day 2

A rainy day so nothing much outside. Went up to the attic (my office) and found the suitcase full of old photos and memories.

The one in the middle is in 1982 just before we went to Portugal. Hania got her driving licence and we hired a Volkswagon Polo and drove to Seaford on the south coast for a picnic – English style. Yes, it was as cold as it looks.

The bottom one with Ewa Paradinska (Ciocia Ewa) is taken in Chybice, the country estate probably in the mid 70’s I would think.

James’ hand.

I’ve got a bored little girl here called Ana. She doesn’t know what to do. So we made a scarecrow too:

Lockdown Day 1

A lazy day, probably be many more.

Ana and I played Minecraft for a bit and worked in the garden. Hania tidied up the garage and we put a few things in the shed.

Vicky had a sprouting garlic clove so we planted that too.

We went to the shop for milk and ice cream. Very strange, only one per family at a time and big crosses taped to the floor to show people how to distance. The shop was very quiet.

Few cars and few people out and about.

Obviously we went to see the goats again.


A new beginning

Starting a new project for the old jonesnz site. The site was most recently providing information and allowing queries about Karapiro Accommodation but that no longer exists (at least we don’t run a place of that name anymore).

Over here in Pirongia we are in lockdown for 4 weeks so let’s see what we can find to occupy ourselves. Fair warning, it may be less than riveting.

There will be some Minecraft and many walks to see the goats. beyond that we’ll see.

On this, the day before we started lockdown I worked on a site for Pirongia Heritage and Information Centre:

The Robot

The Tin Can robot package has been in my attic office for a few months now so finally Ana and I assembled it.

It works pretty well.

Later we went to see the goats (again).

The rest of the afternoon was spent on the video (I need the practice).
