Old MacDonald should really have a health and safety inspection



Dearest ones, please forgive the lack of posts and emails of late. I am in mourning for the newly departed Sarah Dalley. Ag.

Fortunately I am anticipating her return very shortly as the job offer from the NZ Tourist Board is in the post/mail.

So far she is the only visitor that has enjoyed nothing but startllng sunshine since coming here. In fact since the day she came to the day she left (that heinous and distressing day on which I seriously contemplated mutilating her passport...no, really...SERIOUSLY contemplated) there was the most brilliant sunshine.

Hence the NZ Tourist Board is scrabbling to get a job offer to her before Barbados tries to get to her and snaffle up more of the global sunshine hours. She will paid to enter NZ and remain here, eating steak, drinking beer, playing with small godchild and soaking up the sun...that she has brought with her. (I nearly typed 'sin' then instead of 'sun' which is an interesting concept but entirely wrong of course).

Here is the kind of weather that you can expect when Sarah Faith Dalley is in NZ:


She whips up some fairly decent sunsets too:


Yes, so NZ needs her you see.

And to add further proof I have a video. For during the last few weeks I have discovered that Sarah has another hidden talent. Animal sound effects. She is a very convincing gorilla, meer cat, even a swarm of bees.

So for a rendition of Old Macdonald like you've never seen it before you really should take the 1.5 hours it will take to downlaod the 6minute clip. I know, I know, 6 minutes is too long....but I just couldn't edit any of it out.

Oh and Honour is in the video too. Purportedly as the reason/excuse for us to lark about making strange noises.

Well her sun skills seem not to be powerful enough for the Canadian Climate! Sadly. But we are happy to have her home and mill be monitoring her mail for any offers from NZ, Barbados or any other sunny place in order to shred them before she can see them! We need her here I say!!!

You can't all go to NZ for crying out loud!!!

Ok I have now watched the video and while I have some concerns that perhaps Sarah has never heard ANY of those animals before she is certainly entertaining! Almost as entertaining as watching Honour watch and laugh at her which is way to cute!!!!

(although it was well worth it to watch you two gorgeous lovelies try to outdo each other with the weird animals. also? why is sarah in a tank top & shorts while adele is in a long-sleeved shirt and tights? very small weather zones in nz?)

AJ, well if you move here too then we'll be really getting somewhere.

Shannon, the view photos 1 and 2 are from our balcony.

And, uh, I'm not wearing tights.
