Tonight has been the night that I have been writing about 'Tania's Fundraiser', but i've just been flicking through the photo's on my phone and looking back over the holidays. On Friday we had another photo shoot and report done by Rebecca Malcolm,
for the "Daily Post' this was with Tania and Tania and Joshua will be in Saturdays paper again. We are really humbled by Tanias efforts, she is the most beautiful person, inside and out.
On friday we also went to Cambridge to see Aunty Kimmi,
Ella and Alana. I think Aunty Kimmi should give up Nursing and make jam. She sent us home with a jar and heaps of books for Georgia, but boy that Jam!! super yum. I came home all enthused, as I do when I've been around her. She's making bread, has a fabulous
vegie garden, 'Rosters, with photo's for the kids. She had joshua making bugs with homemade playdough, Georgia doing 'mud pies' with Alana, all those things that I forget about, between, kids, hospital and business. I came home all 'earth mothered up'
(She worked 35 hours last week as well, I might add.) Mike got the brunt of it, sent outside with the tape measure and ordered to build me a vegie garden by Monday (which of course will take at least another 10 Mondays..) But at least we have a start!
He knows how much timber he needs. I think I might send my kids to live with her, she's the 'sensible' to my 'fluffiness'. She reminds me of things I said 6 years ago. I cant remember what I said last week, let alone six years ago!
On Sunday we drove
to Whakatane to visit our Starship friends the Edwards family. On the way home we went to the hotpools at Awerkeri. It's so nice to do normal things!
Yesterday I got a shock to find I have my first 'job interview' since 2007 next
week. For PACU here at the Hospital. Thats going to be interesting!
Other than that, I have been painting murals for our Spa Pools, the kids have been helping. Weve been enjoying the sun in our backyard, and today Georgie made some 'Mud Soup'. It was
