Beach time - in December
Well its December, and while the UK may be deep in snow and cold, we are certainly having much more warmer weather. The only downside is the fact it does not feel like Christmas is coming. We have the tree up and some present under it, which get felt, rattled and moved around daily! So far its just the kids presents to each other and their dad! But at least they are starting to get excited.
But we have birthdays first..... India has a very busy schedule next weekend. Kindy disco friday, her party sat, GNS kids party sat pm, 2 friends parties sunday...... she will be ready for the end of term. On top of all that she has been having settling in visits for school and has meet her new teacher Mrs Martin. She loved it and there was huge hugs with friend who have recently moved up to School, as well as the friends moving up with her in Feb.
The kids are pocket money raising - they have picked lemons off the tree as we have a second crop in flower. they have been put in a basket by the front gate and offered for donations.... so far they have raided over $15.
Nana and Grandad are off enjoying the south Island, Milford sound boat trip for Dads birthday. My brother and girlfriend are currently in Sanfransico I think - I wonder if they felt the 5.5 quake today in LA...... They should arrive in Christchurch on Tuesday....
