This blog space has been awfully quiet the last couple of months. I'm really beginning to miss my camera and recording our stories here. We're finally beginning to get settled into our new house. We still don't have lights or a proper power connection but all our belongings are here (albeit many of them still in boxes and piles of rubble). My psyche is gradually relocating here too. I still don't automatically refer to this as 'home' but I'm starting to feel that sense of peace and relaxation you get when you drive up your own driveway.
We got a little care package in the mail from a friend this week. It had some cute knitted bunnies for the kids, some homemade raspberry jam and quince paste. Such a great start to the week! There was also some almond and cherry bread that I was looking forward to nibbling on with a cup of tea and a good book after the kids were in bed. Unfortunately Turi burnt his hand on our site flood lights and Minty scoffed the entire packet, with a wild look of panic in her eyes, during the commotion! Clearly I have raised a little stress eater. Turi is ok. Thanks Manu!
