School Winter Holidays July 2018

Wishing you all a safe and happy Term 2 winter holiday. For those heading to the mountains I believe there is plenty of snow.

My family had a great holiday staying at our friends bach in Rangataua (near Ohakune) last year where we got snowed in. We woke up one morning to a deafening silence and a magical snow blanket covering houses, roads and trees. Our 16 year old Aussie home stay had never seen anything like it. 

The only heating in the house was a Metro Wee Rad wood burner. What a machine!! The whole house was cosy warm (shorts and tee shirts only required) and all the wet, damp and cold ski gear was dry in half an hour.

There is nothing better than starting the wood burner at breakfast time, boiling the kettle on the top and settling in for a cosy winters day.

Favourite time of year!!
