I'm only just going to make it in time for today's post - it's a quarter to midnight! It was our book club Christmas party tonight, and we had a meal at a pub in town and exchanged presents. I gave a framed print of one of my photos, and I was given a pair of beautiful handmade Christmas tree decorations in the shape of native New Zealand birds. I love them!
This one's a morepork (Māori name: ruru) - the only remaining native owl.
This one's a fantail (Māori name: pīwakawaka) - the gorgeous little bird I named my house after.
