Dear Peter, Please say thank you to those lovely children at Tatuanui School for looking after you. I can not come and look after you. I’d come for a visit but, my back is hurting and I have a really bad flu. Can’t call on the phone as I’ve no money on my phone card. Did you kids take the piggy bank from under my bed to buy those smothees the day you left? I know you will be looking out for Paul. He is still such a baby. Has Percy returned from his visit to Granma? I do miss you all so much. If you get a chance Id love to hear from you Lots of Piggy kisses. Mother Marny Pig
