Great excitment today as a postcard arrives from Henry who is on holiday in New Zealand with his Mummy, Lorraine, visiting her parents. Jon, who has just come in from outside picks it up from the front door mat and calls excitedly to the others.
Bethany is the first to arrive and helps Jon carry their very first ever postcard.
Jon is wearing a Frilly-Lilly duffle coat over Dollydoodles skinny jeans and Ruthsdoll's shoes whilst Bethany has a Thelma/Molly tartan pinafore over a Phyllis G. jumper and Ruthsdoll's sandals.
Let's put it on the table so that we can read what Henry has written.
Look it says that Henry is having a fantastic time. They flew over there in an ALL BLACK's aeroplane and are staying in the country surrounded by farms with horses, highland cattle, ducks, chickens and dogs. He has been on some bush walks and several times to the beach. He is glad that he packed his mackintosh as it was raining there today.
Gotz toddler Bea joins them to hear all about Henry's adventures. She is wearing a OOAK outfit made by Ruthsdolls and given to me one Christmas from Dawn Law.
Bethany shows Bea the pictures on the front of some of the native birds of New Zealand. Look at the one at the top left as this Kakapo is a nocturnal bird that is nearly extinct. If you are near a Kea alpine parrot (seen on the bottom left ) be very careful not to go near to them as they are not 'a-very-nice-to-you' bird. Then there is a Pukeko, a popular water bird and a Tui, an attractive bird who lives in the forests. The Takahe shown in the centre is another endangered bird.
A million thanks again Sarah for adding these latest photos in this larger format.
