TUES - Finished the
metalling (laying gravel) on Massey Track today with rangers Scotty and Hue. Finished by 2.30, went back and sunned myself on the damn and read. After food Bruce and Aidy got out the guitars, was nice listening to them on the sofas but i was falling asleep, went to the damn and lay on the wall watching the stars.
WEDS - I took a team (Holly, Andy, Aidy and Joe) around Massey checking the bait lines and stoat traps. found a flat rat in one and i had to take it out because my designated rat clearer Andy was nowhere!! eew!!! stank, was horrible, at least it died immediately! Got a lift back up from the falls, made lunch and went through Old Track with everyone, I got another squashed, maggoty rat! was disgusting! Track was fun, we found a water hole Scotty had told us about, Andy, Barbara and Holly went swimming, nutters, was freezing!!! Very chatty Piwakawaka (fantail) turned up, got some really good photos 😊
THURS - in the morning me and Holly litter picked around the falls and the rest cleared the water tables. Afternoon we went back to Wairoa and finished clearing it,

Read at the damn to finish Terry Prachett so Aidy could read it. Last Bruce roast tonight, had way too much but it was soo good!! Then icecream, may aswell fill myself before I starve travelling! Played cards and bed.
FRI - Last day ever of CVNZ :*( Did no work, just cleaned the house really well. Said bye to John at the ranger station, Scotty was at the falls so couldn't say bye to him but John gave me his and Scotty's numbers if ever I need them or become stuck 😊 Back to the new house in Mt Eden, so nice! Dumped my stuff, said bye to Bruce and promptly ran off to cry, god I cry at every goodbye!! Cleared out the shed whilst waiting for Jenny, Sandra and Fiona are completely bogged down with work and I thought it would never get done otherwise so I offered to do it, kept me occupied aswell 😊 Saw some of Neighbours :D Libby's

Bye to Sandra and Fiona :*( then got a lift to town with Jenny, bye to her :*( then up to the hostel, met Tasha 😊 went out to Balcony bar for free drinks, was fun 😊 Met Dave and the others and went out for a meal in Father Teds then to Globe bar for free drinks, was Pirate Night, managed to acquire a pirate outfit and got trashed as Wesley - barman - kept giving us free drinks 😊
SAT - Took Tasha to the airport for her to catch her plane to Fiji, I really wanted to go, and she really wanted me to come, so one thing lead to another and I ended up buying a flight for Sunday!! One of the most expensively spontaneous decisions I've made and I won't regret it :D Saw Tasha off then back to ACB to book hostels in Fiji and grab my stuff. Met Dave and went back to Mt Eden house to sort everything out! My bag is so light now, no socks, no warm clothes apart from my plane clothes!! Feels so good! Watched Tropic Thunder then bed, I got to stay in the
Mt Eden house!! yay!!
