I'm glad a hectic social life is a thing of the past. After an unusually busy social weekend I feel done in. When I loaded and looked at this photo below I thought the water was moving.
I know my eyesight is fading, add tired eyes and interesting things happen!
This was the view outside the little hut my daughter, Leone and I shared on Saturday night. It's a little estuary in Taiharuru, a lovely peaceful spot. We were the first guests to stay in the hut and appreciated it being offered to us when the other place we wanted to stay was booked out. My daughter declared that was the first time ever she had put on makeup without a mirror or done her hair using the reflection from the ranch slider. The owners had also failed to connect the hotwater to the gas bottle and when they installed the gas stove forgot that it needed electricity to turn on the burners. (The hut is off the grid and relies on solar power.) But it was in the perfect location for us, so close to where my daughter-in-law was celebrating her 50th birthday party in family friends' cliff top holiday home on the other side of the very narrow peninsula.
The wind carried with it the first hint of winter.
Georgia over-seeing my grandson, Aiden and great-granddaughter, Lexis. I love seeing the grandies playing together like this, despite their age differences.
I pray for the day one year old Emilia will be in the photo with them.
Sunday morning we gathered at the B&B where Justine was staying to have a video call with my younger son and little Emilia in Brasil. It was her first birthday.
364 days old
I don't have a birthday photo of her yet, just videos, and I can't figure out how to take them from Instagram and save them.
On top of all that activity I was out till all hours on Friday night being the sober driver for Leone's work team after a team building activity. They seemed to be getting along just fine on the way home.
