I couldn’t sleep this morning so I got up at 3:45am.
I had been lying awake for a while wondering what to do. Tim was snoring his head off.
I didn’t want to turn on a light and read or go make cards just in case it woke him.
Then I remembered I had a new Bible study book and dvd’s and I knew exactly where abouts our bedroom they were.
I was able to creep out of bed, gather up my glasses and the study and go to the living room without waking anyone.
I was so enjoying it I watched 3 sessions of it and worked through the workbook.
It was great. Best teaching I have had in years.
Once it got to 6:30am I went and did some internet stuff for a few moments and then woke Tim up for an early morning spa.
It is really nice out there when the dawn is breaking.
I was in the study at 7:50am when Azzan came blearily out and said ‘It is nearly 8 o’clock’ – he knew Bri had said they were leaving at 8am so he was worried that he had slept in. I got him and Hali moving along. They had to find a few clothes and pj’s and then I made them a sandwich each and by 8:30am they and Bri were on their way.
The rest of the day has been fairly quiet.
I have been sorting photos for my Photomax site in between other things.
We had fellowship in the late morning.
Then after lunch Shanni & Nathan went kayaking with Mira & Takao.
They weren’t out very long and when they returned Nathan & Mira went in for a swim.
They came up and hopped into the spa to warm up.
Tim & Seb went around to Te Kopi to retrieve some sheep that they have been trying to get back for weeks.
This time they were successful.
We have had a chat with Anson and Cat today – it is good to keep up with the comings and goings of the older children when they are away. We love to hear what is happening in their lives and they like to keep up with what is going on at home.
It was beautiful one moment and the next it was gone and there was just a grey sky remaining.
Seb chopped up some broccoli and red onion for a salad, put on some rice to cook and then headed over to Waterfall Bay. Tim cooked the steak and I cooked some pumpkin.
Dinner was good
It has been quite quiet here today without the two little folk. Although Shani tried desperately to make up for their absence at dinner time! Talked to Mum tonight and she and the children all sound happy. They were having fish and chips for tea – a treat for all
I was all set to do the PAYE tonight, got into the IRD site and actually managed to do it without making any errors this time – whew!
Then I went to my internet banking site and I couldn’t find my digipass. It normally sits beneath my computer. I searched high and low for it. I cleaned the desk, searched the drawers and the rubbish bin, began trashing a heap of stuff that didn’t need to be in here – actually had a huge clean up – and then when I was totally despairing, Tim walked past and I asked him if he had seen it and then I caught sight of it. It had somehow gotten underneath my keyboard and each time I had moved it the digipass was scooting along underneath. Whew! So got all that done, and ended up with a clean and sort of tidy study from it all.
Had a lovely catch up with my friend Christine on the phone while I was searching. Seb arrived back – much later than he should’ve as he has a very early start tomorrow. So do I so it is time to get to bed, after my early morning I am feeling rather tired tonight.
