Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas. Over the last weekend it was Queen’s Birthday weekend, celebrating Elizabeth II’s birthday. It is a public holiday here in New Zealand, hence the arrival of our visitors. Brother even came home for the long weekend, bringing his dirty washing home for mummy to do.
The weather was fine and lots of good food was cooked and eaten. Mummy made two date loaves and two Feijoa chocolate cakes, however, she forgot to take photos of them to prove their existence, before they were eaten by our hungry guests. On Saturday night, daddy cooked a slow roast pork, it was in the oven for 7 hours. Imagine all that tantalising smell waffting through the house all day.
Did they share anything with the three bestest maremmas in all the land? Yes, of course, but not as much as We think we deserve.
Mummy and aunty had to go to Palmerston North to visit their uncle who is in hospital. Travelling back, our Holden SUV started to play up and begun to lose power. Mummy managed to get it to our local garage and daddy picked them up from there. It would transpire that our Captiva got knocked out by a rat climbing into the engine air intake and chewing on the air filter. Resulting bits caused wild sensor readings which made the engine do all sorts of weird stuff. Rat chewed its way through the air filter cover to get out as well. Mummy says Lord knows how much the repair bill will be, but thankfully any repairs will be covered by insurance.
Love the three bestest maremmas in all the land.
