Made by a grandson.
At the moment he is training to be a baker.
He made these gingerbread houses for his siblings and cousins for Christmas.
They had a wonderful time with the top one
as we all got together on New Years Day and demolished it,
it was full of lollies which really excited the little ones.

Our neighbours are felling their hedge which some people call a living fence.
First a very nice young man came along with a chain saw and felled about 30 foot of it.
He then fed it into the mulcher, causing a lot of fine sawdust to float over our fence covering our outdoor furniture in a fine film.
We still have to get to the finish line but this is how the living fence is looking today.

This has resulted in a large number of small country parishes,
and some inner city parishes as well,
losing the churches they have worshiped in for generations.
|The bell tower|
Holy Tinity Anglican church in Lawrence is one such church.
These are some snaps I took recently as we were passing through.
|notice of final service|
The final service in Holy Trinity took place on
January 11th, 2015 at 8:30am
presided over by Bishop Kelvin.
He describes the 1000 year old font belonging to
the church and gives a brief history of it here.
