Thanks to everyone who has stopped by recently (through the Grow Your Blog party, regular readers and to those who may have just surfed on in). If you are looking for my Grow Your Blog post, you can find it here.
We have been away up north for a few days, but before we left I finished up Snowy Deer (and corrected the face on the raccoon). I can't wait for the next instalment.
While we were away we visited a farm/petting zoo, where we met Snowy Deer's cousin Sunny Deer. Isn't it gorgeous?
It was a very hot day, but luckily there was plenty of shade on offer for both the animals and ourselves. Annabelle was a bit too young to enjoy it, but our 12 year old niece and I certainly did.
We took a nice drive part way up Mt Taranaki. You can walk to the top if you don't mind a strenuous 8-10 hour climb. Even though the temperature was in the mid 20s (Celsius) where we were, the sign said it was -8 degrees Celsius at the summit. I was content admiring the summit from below.
Anyway, the real point of this post was to remind you that my giveaway will be drawn on Monday 3 February. If you'd like to throw your name in the hat please comment on this post here. Everyone is welcome to enter.
