Well, I have 2 hours to go in the babysitting marathon… will be ringing Bet and suggesting coffee before church rather than spending the whole afternoon together. I am really keen to go church tonight as a rather well known Australian photographer will be showing of images from his new book… Let’s say I have a keen interest in seeing photographers who are stunning the world… Great inspiration… Otherwise I would probably reschedule till next week sometime…
The kids (3) I have sat for this weekend are great friends who I have been sitting for for about 4 years… needless to say they have grown up A LOT in that time and we are all pretty much family now… I love it… The little guy is the last person to propose to me… though at 7 years old now he would be embrassed to be reminded that I was his no 2 girl when he was 5 (Mum was number 1 but married already…).
I have to confess though, my patience was shorter than usual last night due to my shallow emotional tank… Still, I think I might have got away with it, I was lenient on the bed time for them but hard on myself and so, with around 10 hours sleep I am feeling a bit more on the level.
And then, I saw this article on the NZ Herald website. Only wish these fares were coming up before Christmas rather than in the New Year…
$1!!! WOW. I’m definitely on my way to NZ! [not that I need an excuse…I really want to go — but cheap fares make it easier!]
Hope you got to church [I didn’t today :(], and I look forward to the report.
definitely with you on the sleep thing. I had 10 hours on Friday night and almost that many last night and feel so much better today :) (wish it was cumulative though and we could store it for use over the coming week!!)

Cheap fares would make it even easier from here!
Dreaming of NZ (or Oz for that matter) trip – not that $1 fares are a realistic possibility for me anytime soon!
$1 fares? That’s the perfect excuse for a shopping trip to Melbourne in January!
PS Where in NZ does your family live?
