Windy Sunday

Today has been a particularly windy ole day. Living on a hill with the harbour keeping an eye on you, sometimes you get a vicious, non-stop wind. It just blows and blows and blows, and things rattle, and you worry about the newer plants breaking. It got so bad once that it actually lifted the trampoline up and carried it to the end of the property – if it hadn’t been for the tree there it would have ended up at the neighbours. It was one of those days today, and as Simon has two exams tomorrow for his Summer School papers, the kids & I were left to entertain ourselves. It can be hard to encourage the kids to leave the house in this kind of weather, but we attempted it anyway in the hope that when we went over the hill it might be less windy.

It wasn’t less windy really, but we had a lovely walk along one of my favourite streets in Port Chalmers admiring the beautiful old homes, and then dropped down to the school to use the playground there. Reuben was kicking his soccer ball around and I couldn’ t help but admire the backdrop to the sports field, you can’t complain when your landscape looks like this can you.

    Ahhh, the wind!! Stunning day here, found the best spot at Queen Elizabeth Park, in the shade with our own little path down to Paekakariki beach. Yummy picnic lunch and Lucy had a ball. So pleased that Mia’s op went well, she must love hearing everything!

    Even a windy day looks so enjoyable! Really, it looks lovely and makes me wish for the green of spring and summer here. It’s been very windy here too but that’s good as some of the snow is melting finally!! It makes me think that spring maybe here soon.

    Love the photo of the children in the garden. I hope all is well with you. I have heard of the earthquake in New Zealand. Not sure if it is nearby you.

    thanks for your kind words, the earthquake has been devastating to New Zealand, everyone has felt it in their hearts. Christchurch is only 5 hours drive from here, so close yes x
