Monday 23rd June

Sat and chatted with Sunni for a while in my pjs while Lily & Azzan slept this morning.
Then woke Azzan & zipped through the shower so we could go out during her awake window.
Got to the car and found Mat had gone off to work with the baby seat in his truck.
Blast. Darn and Oh bother said Pooh!
A phone call made to a busy man, who very obligingly returned it back to us within a very short time.
We loaded us all onboard the wee Swift and were soon at Little Bird for brunch.
They have opened up a 2nd shop in Ponsonby Road.
It is a great place to go and experience different foods to what pst of us are used to.
Louise came to join us there.
She lives just up the road so was a very convenient place to meet.
So cool to see her again after so many years.

I ordered the Nachos – they were delicious.
Also had a a very delicious smoothie with all sorts of yummy things in it – figs, dates, walnuts, oats, banana, cocoanut milk, etc
Azzan had a Mexican dish which he said was delicious.
We had a great time chatting and chatting up with Louise but finally had to leave and take Lily home for her nap.
She didn’t sleep too long so we took her and the dogs for a walk.
But as we were about to leave Sunni discovered their leads were missing – probably in Mat’s truck!
So she improvised with a scarf around her middle and some green string.
Worked a treat.
She might even start a new trend 😉
I pushed Lily in the pushchair and the others led the way to the Western Springs park.

It is very pretty there.
Autumny beautiful.
Lots of birds.
Swans, geese, pigeons, sparrows, gulls, and more pukeko than I have ever seen together.DSC03021DSC03024DSC03026DSC03028DSC03031DSC03039
Lily chewed on her apple and watched the birds.
Then shared her apple with Tank!

We came back home and I watched Lily for a while so Sunni & Azzan could take the dogs for a run at the dog park.
She was happy to play in the plastic fantastic for a while.
The sun was shining through her glorious hair – showing off her a fantastic mohawk.

I was feeling a bit down and tearful so it was good to just have some peace & quiet to spend  time with Lily.
It is absolutely nothing anyone can fix.
Just have times when I feel really sad and even though everything around me is happy and busy and I can enjoy that, inside I am heartsick
It happens quite often and without warning.
A memory, a word, a thought….
.
After a while we went indoors and played with her blocks until the others came home.
Echo was right in on the block game!

When Mat came home Lily got most excited.
They had some fun time together.

After she went off to bed we had dinner.
Stir fried veges and steak.
Yum.
Our last night here 😦
Made some plans for tomorrow and headed off to bed.
