...random jottings on what may be happening in my life at any particular time, not necessarily anything earth shattering, just ordinary every day stuff; and photographs, mainly taken by me, my GKB and other family members as we travel through this journey called life...
Yes the big silver bird has flown...and taken number one son with it. But he is reunited with his lovely wife who didn't come over with him. The flight was delayed in leaving by an hour and a half because of a medical emergency in the Pacific but they got away eventually. He had to start work the day after getting home so I hope he was able to sleep on the fight. I know I don't sleep when I am travelling so I try to travel during the day and sleep in a (stationary) bed at night.
It was a liesurely holiday, real kiwi style. He arrived, sat down and got up again when it was time to leave.
Well not really but we didn't do much.
Soccer with middle grandson
Watched the grands play sports. Ours is the blondie.
Netball with youngest grand-daughter (WD)
Youngest grand-daughter is growing fast, I keep telling her to stop, she is now taller than me, but she just laughs. I'm not used to the girls in the family being taller than me, only the blokes.
coffee after the soccer
We took my little mother out for lunch one day and and another day just went out as a family, i.e. just me, my GKB and our 3 kids and ate lunch at a pub. Great. We followed that by going up to eldest daughters home for coffee.
Dad, Mum and the kids
The weather behaved, and has just packed up today, so that was a bonus seeing as it was the end of winter while he was here.As you can see, my GKB was in shirt sleeves so the temps were pretty good, we were able to sit outside in the sun a few times and chat and drink even more coffee - oh dear :)
And of course he caught up with friends and other family members as well.
