This has been a pretty normal week–lots of school and other real life, too.
I know this is common-place to natives of Canterbury, but it was something totally new for us. There are hedges around many paddocks and houses, to break the wind and give privacy, and every couple of years they are trimmed. The one in front of our house was trimmed two years ago, right after we moved into this house, and now it’s been done again. This time, we were home to see it done!
