I needed a new shower installed when it became obvious it was leaking - so in between all that I was getting materials together and getting the builder and plumber in - but it's worth it - all shiny and new - managed to get it mainly finished before I flew over to Nelson last weekend and had my little Spring break. The weather was unsettled but enough sun and a well stocked log burner took care of that and it was lovely to find some time to shop and talk and catch up with Libby and Davy and some other lovely Nelson friends... And of course wee Fergus.
Poppy had fun back here with Alex.
Back to Christchurch in time to fit in choir, some dinners with friends, and celebrate some birthdays - Phoebe is 8 this week, where has the time gone!!!!, so took her present out yesterday... And never even took a photo. The girls are growing up so fast..
And James had a birthday dinner on Friday and today, we all went for afternoon tea at my parents to celebrate with them.
Long phone chat with my other mother last night too - and regular facebook chats with my sister in Greece. All in all, a fabulous time filled with family, friends and good times and the house is getting into shape for summer ahead.
I don't take it for granted. I know it is a privilege to have a lovely home and so many wonderful people in my life and to share so may experiences with them.
Much love to you all xxx
