Actually he's just on loan for the night. He hates cars and his Mum has to go to Auckland once a week and if he's left at home he does naughty things and if he's taken in the car he gets up to mischief. So his Mum says he can go to a caring home where he doesn't have to travel or be left on his own. I'd keep him myself if I wasn't so transient.
On the fibre front it's a bit dismal. Went to the Whangamata market on the last Sunday of January (Auckland Anniversary weekend) and sold absolutely nothing. Mind you the humidity levels were very high (who wants to touch wool), the day had been changed from the usual Saturday to Sunday, and as it was wet the organiser had crammed tables in. I'm in the foyer with 4 stalls in all, this time there were 7! Shall I try again at Easter - million dollar question!
This weekend just gone the Katikati Art and Craft Trail had a special two days. Every studio had to be open 10 - 6 each day. I didn't mind the hours as I got a lot of work done but I only saw two people on each day and no sales. I am 20Km from Katikati so guess that's not going to work either.
