Today I feel blessed to have watched Eva perform, as a butterfly, in the school musical, Noah.  After lots of anxiety she was there right up the front doing all the actions.  No headpiece but her wings looked beautiful.

I feel blessed that Hugo calmly feel asleep right at the start and stayed asleep the whole performance.

I am blessed that it’s Andrew’s turn for tomorrow night’s performance!

Eva and Mama, Queenstown June 2014

Today I feel blessed to be mothering this beautiful girl who feels so passionately about things and is sometimes like looking in a mirror…..

I feel blessed that she wanted lots of cuddles from me this afternoon/evening as she coped with a day of rehearsals for Noah the school musical instead of a day at school.  SO MUCH CHANGE for her and so many tears this evening.

Today I feel blessed by the sunshine that makes me feel warm and content to have washing getting dry!

I am blessed to be home to good food and children enjoying playing with trains and chalk.

I feel blessed that Hugo’s kindy teacher told me that he was sad when I left because “you have done such amazing job and he just loves you”.

I was blessed to watch Eva and Hugo become more confident with each crossing of this bridge.

I was blessed to meet Andrew at the end of his working day ready to travel back with him sitting next to the children on the plane and me finishing a great novel.

We visited Parliament House (just looked from the outside).

I was blessed to sit quietly and enjoy a pot of warming tea and some book reading.

This evening I was blessed to find a wood fire oven pizza restaurant which was so warm and toasty and made me feel defrosted for the first time today!

We enjoyed seeing a light festival display along the waterfront.
