We’re back in beautiful Auckland. Yesterday the rain was teeming down and the wind blew right through you – but I loved it. Today the sun shone and the sky was a bright New Zealand blue. I bought a couple of bunches of daffodils and they bring the spirit of spring into our bach. We took a walk through the local reserve and stopped at the top of the hill to marvel at the view of the Tamaki estuary. We went into a supermarket and bought fruit, vegetables, meat and wine for dinner – what a treat! But best of all we’ve seen and spent time with both our girls. We feel on top of the world today!
