My role here as Camp Mother is very demanding - making enough food for 10-12 hungry men every day is quite daunting - but they seem very happy with the cuisine. I have four days off every fortnight, and by the time I return to the kitchen everything in the fridge is gone...a clean sweep! I can see now why it's mostly youngsters that take on summer jobs!
Still, we have the advantage here of a most enormous bedroom in the old High School hostel, wonderful showers with an abundance of hot water and best of all swimming in the Wairau River - something that has been an absolute necessity for the men in the hot weather!
Price Hold for Web BuyersI have unfortunately had to raise my prices on Trade Me, due to rises in price for my wools, dyes and of course, cartage. I am going to hold prices for all wools purchased through the online shop for at least six months as a reward for those of you who use the website. I'll signal any further price rises well ahead - but they won't be huge if they happen at all.
In the now very belated newsletter (my last draft disappeared into the ether, never to return), I will be featuring a new colourway - and I want you to decide its name. The originator of the most suitable name will receive 200gr of the colour of their choice absolutely free!
