Wind 'em back

Daylight savings started in NZ yesterday morning. Personally I don't like it. I have enough trouble getting out of bed in the morning without being forced to do it an hour earlier. I don't care what 'they' say, the sun will always set the time on my body clock. As for getting the kids to bed when it's still daylight outside - they didn't think that one through either did they.

We spent the weekend at the Coromadel Peninsula which is a beautiful part of the world. I didn't brave the water though. We all know I'm a whimp when it comes to getting into the water in Oz so it will take a summer of heat waves to get me in here. Not that I'm wishing that upon myself! That was one of the attractions of moving across the ditch. BTW that dust storm didn't make it to our coastline.

Pack up your troubles

If you've ever had professional packers do the hard work when moving house, you'll know what I'm talking about. After a mild panic attack at the thought of not having done enough sorting, two big, tough guys came in and took control. Expertly wrapping everything in sight from Polly Pockets to Bohemian crystal. OK, Polly Pockets and Littlest Pet Shop toys. Finally we are on the home stretch - this move across the Tasman as been so draaawn out.

10 sleeps to go...

Or should that be sheep[s]? Not sure, what do you think SOTH?

I had the first of my good byes the other night with my buddies all of whom I am going to miss dearly. It is all feeling very real now and the thought of leaving you behind is making me very emotional. At least I hope that's the reason for it and not menopause. Surely I'm too young for that?!

Thank you also for the beautiful Ari piece - very unexpected. I was sure you were going to send me off with a survival pack, which of course would include a 10 kilo bag of Di Bella coffee. Anyway, I'm certainly not complaining, nor dropping hints for that matter.

But I've not gone yet and there're a few more farewell moments to be had.
