Taking lunch break under a tree to keep covid at bay.
We are still social distancing, are you? With luck we are in the last stage of this long haul, we all just got to keep it together and then, soon, we can safely be together!
No! Not boys in the kitchen, that’s old news. The new normal is keeping at least a metre distance between you while doing normal things like cooking.
Finding positives in the new normal. For example there are many things, like arts and crafts, that work better if you have plenty of space to yourself.
Well, they are back in school actually, which is just as fun!
Staff at Olng’arua School like a bit of spice in their food. Lucky for them these hot little chilli peppers grow readily here. This bush of peppers seeded itself near the tap outside the staff accommodation.
Not to be outdone by Natunini some of the boys have also been experimenting with the art of hat making.

As several photographs on this site will testify, she is often to be seen wearing stylish head gear. This floral arrangement, made from desert rose flowers, is just the latest of this fashionista’s creations.
