Girls just want to shop

Savemart trip for a pretty dress for India who is off to the Officers Mess with her friend of Thursday.  We ended up with a very pretty dress and white shoes and also a pair of converse all stars which are glues to India's feet!  Saffron also found some cool glittery gold hi tops. Now we are all ready for school tomorrow!

Rathkeale Day 1

So College begins for the first born!   Day one at Rathkeale College in Masterton.  He is boarding, coming home weekends if he wants to, as there is always plenty happening around school.
We had lunch out on the way there in Greytown.  After unloading his gear into his shared cubical in the dorm at Rugby House, making his bed and unpacking we had a quick assembly.  From here we caught glimpses of him but he was busy doing orientation and getting to know the other lads.  The main assembly to start the academic year began at 4pm with a whole school Haka (apart from newbies). After this we said goodbye and headed home with two tired girls and forgo the evening drinks with the headmaster.  No tears but now we have two girls who want to go to St Matthews!
