        Is that Eli running around ?

        I have been looking to see if there were plastic bags lying around here as litter, and there aren’t, or very, very few. The litter around here and on the main road is mainly takeaway rubbish and drink tins. I saw one bag along the main road from Hamilton, and it’s been there for a while.

          I thought $29.99 (+6.99 for shipping) from 1-day.co.nz was a blimmin good price for a decent pair of chest-high waders. That’s in a shallow part – I walked into a quieter, deeper section off camera & they seem to be all good & waterproof up to thigh height at least. The stream’s still running a bit higher than normal & there was a bloody freezing cold southerly but I wanted to test them asap. And those are the bags and bits of plastic I couldn’t get to the other week so it’s good to get rid of them.

          Haven’t seen Eli for two days. He hasn’t been back since the last couple of rainy days when the stream was in flood. There’s an old rotting 4×2 stuck in the foliage down by his last-known hidey hole, maybe obstructing – but I’ll get down there another day. There’s another plastic bag above it that I want to get.

            Online is the way to do these things; you don’t have to see some things, like the waders. The savings can be huge,

            Briscoes charges $5 for delivery or $0 for Click and Collect. I bought two sheets and a cushion this way and saved $90 (they were a one day super special) I was going in anyway so collected them. The Warehouse is also $5 for delivery but $3 for C & C up to $30 when it’s $0.
