It is decidedly cold in the winterless North today. Ok..........so I didn't grab a jersey as I left the house, but I actually wish I had.
I left the house today.
To attend a hospital appointment to discuss my future. A bright and long future. The discussion was held with a particularly caring and empathetic registrar. I felt cared about and listened to. I really appreciate medical staff who treat us as people, not numbers.
I left the hospital feeling.................hopeful. Very hopeful. It's such a good feeling to have right now, this week, month, year!!
Ok, I'm really not into narcissism, I'm not that happy about having my photo taken BUT.........I have decided my hairdresser is an ANGEL. Who?............can recreate a fringe and hair style......when half of the front has been shaved off. My hairdresser!! A new parting, some cool layers, chuck a straightener through it and nobody would ever know. I am very pleased, and almost feel like me again. THE NEW ME!!!!
But back to the weather. It is COLD here today. I think I may have acclimatised since moving away from the South Island. This year I'm feeling it.
It is great to get out the layers again. I have missed wearing my boots and scarves. Bring it on!!!
See, the sea view was quickly disappearing under rain clouds.
See, the outside balls are sitting idle and some even weathering.........
See, the sand pit, come toybox is catching rainwater.
And the swing is sad and lonely :-(
Even the mint is looking less green and the Pukeko isn't prancing ;-)
Sadly the strawberries are wintering down.
Happily, the blankies and remote are handy.
.........and the girls are enjoying a range of easter crafts.
Welcome to the North, Winter!!
