The year has flown, we have moved across the city, from the lowlands of the Manukau to the foothills of the Waitakere Ranges. After nearly 50 years of collecting, rescuing, and generally keeping stock, there was an awful lot to move out. Done now. I have no studio, just a box of basics that slides under my chair. Summer is here, lunch is coming. Wishing the best for the Christmas season, to friends and family.
