Today was a MAGICAL day. I am feeling so much better and got to see Mum today. It is 538 days since Mum had her fall. What a roller coaster of a journey since then. Mum continues to be an inspiration and it is a pleasure and a privilege to visit her and spend time with her. Today Gabi and I took Mum to the Wobbly Goat Cafe. Mum is such an incredible tower of strength. She is always 'THERE' for us. She is fun. She chooses her attitude everyday and she is amazing!

Day nine and today I am have to work hard to choose my attitude. I am still not well but looks like we might be onto what is going on now. So, a very quiet day it is. What a wonderful, relaxing time watching movies with families and friends. Labour day, Last Vegas, both great videos and up next The Book Thief. It really is great to enjoy movies that make an impact!
What is not to love... Winter white wonderland! Today Mark and Nicki and I are driving through the Manuka Gorge heading south for a Teacher Only Day. The frost is slowing us but the scenery is STUNNING. It is a hoar frost, also known as a white frost where even the trees appear to be frozen. The rental car showed it to be -7 degrees through the gorge! A truly cold start to the day!

We then toured the AMAZING St Mark's Basilica, where the body of Mark the apostle is entombed. What a simply stunning church. Sooo much history is recorded in these churches and they are all unique and tell an amazing story. Next stop an amazing glass blowing demonstration! WOW what an art! Very very sad to hear that the tradition is being lost as the younger generations are not seeing the charm in spending 20+ years training to spend their life working in extreme heat!
