NZ National Lamb Day
Today has been declared National Lamb Day to celebrate 125 years since the first shipment of frozen lamb (Ian says Canterbury Lamb) from NZ to England. So I hope all those Kiwis and Poms out there will be celebrating appropriately by eating lamb today.
And yes the red roses were very nice.....
Overnight, Grant's house down the road, caught fire - seems the tenants had left a candle burning in the laundry, so the back part is all burnt out. He is planning to develop it and at least the main part of the house in the front looks intact still, but a big shock. It will certainly hurry along the development. We went around to have a look for him but couldn't see much as the assessor has selaed it all up.
