After 14 weeks in the “coolest little capital” in the world we get home to Nelson (I wonder how many lifts there are in Nelson?)….
Day 1: I meant to unpack but Helena’s friend (who I look after) is here… Not that they needed me to adjudicate any disputes today and seemed to have developed a relaxed way of being together since their time apart and are doing their OWN stuff! Then one of my friends turned up with her child (really our extended family) and then the neighbors (we missed the now 5 year old’s birthday so got to deliver presents). At one point there was an 8 year old, a 7 year old, a 5 year old, a 2 year old and someone nearly 2. There was lego, babies, drawing on the pavement with chalk – BRILLIANT and all in the lovely sunny windless day.
There are my people working at their desks before 9am. And what am I doing? un-packing with coffee.
And messy play is back on the menu too.
