Holidays.

It was a very sunny day today. We went to the beach. We didn't swim but we sat on the sand and drank coffee from the Chocolate Fish while the children played in the sand. I helped one friend's son who had a wasp sting on his lip, then I decided another friend's son needed an x-ray on his hand. Sure enough, they finally went this evening and he's in plaster now, I saw the broken bone on the x-ray. After the beach, I took six of the children to my friend's mother's gorgeous house for a swim in their heated pool and she even gave me the keys to the house so I could get more ice for her son's still swollen lip! I was able to wander through the mansion! We then split the boys up, I took three of the boys back to my house, and the other three went to another house, and we all had a peaceful afternoon. A quiet evening too, pretty much. That's it.
And here's me and Monty driving north through the bush (Monty belongs to Finn)

Monty has no bracelets like you have ! It must have been coolish as you have a thickish jacket on,or was it early/late?

My bracelets say Nick on one wrist and Keeley on the other!

It had been raining in the central north island so it was a bit cooler in the morning.

We go back to school on Monday.

Thanks! Christy's camera! We have pics of Monty all over the place now, in the bunk, by the river, on the bikes, at the kitchen window overlooking the river...

Okay, so, I had a stupid moment looking at this picture. I couldn't figure out how someone got a shot from the left side unless they were outside the car. Then, I realized that we Americans have the steering wheel on a different side than you do!

Just thought I'd share my dense moment.

Sounds like some not too pleasant injuries there, but an okay day in spite of it!

Heh, yeah, we drive on the left side of the road LOL! I think it'd be easy to get confused!

Yeah, it was a pretty good day. Today, much harder! And colder. Brrrr!
