Welcome to Affinity Rainbow Publications
August 2017 Newsletter
Kia Ora readers


Koru here, 
     Brrr very cold here in this part of the world. As I write this, it is minus 5 degrees centigrade (23 degrees Fahrenheit). Not looking forward to letting the chickens out this morning, everything will be frozen. There are three hens who refuse to go into the houses during the night and believe me their tail feathers will be frozen solid...silly chickens. I’m happy to say I have a prime spot next to the fire during the evening and now a lovely heat is radiating in the background.
