a new year
Phew, we made it! Gone is the year of the renovation, and hello to a relaxing 2013. That was Brendan's resolution for the entire year, to just sit. The past few days have been lovely; eating alfresco on our new terrace, day trips to the beach, a ferry ride, skipping (a resolution to get more fit and less jiggly at home). And for an upcoming week away in Hawkes Bay (just us girls) we almost contemplated driving the five plus hours but a recent overnight stay elsewhere which equated to a drive just over an hour almost wrecked the girls. Actually, Audrey's very good (plentiful food helps a great deal). It's Lucy asking 'how much further' every five minutes, and declarations of boredom that sealed the fate of a plane ride there. As my mother always used to tell us 'a bored person is a boring person'. I am my mother now for I told Lucy that very same thing.
A very, very happy new year to you all. Make it magical.
