Life has been crazy busy lately. It's the winter school holidays here in New Zealand and so my little boy has been home, which is just bliss. The time seems to fly by! The poor lad has had to attend quite a few hospital appointments - he had problems with his heart a few months ago and the doctors are still doing lots of tests and things to try and figure out what is going on. They have ordered a 'sleep deprivation test', which feels like absolute torture as it means nobody in the house gets any sleep - OMG! I turn into such a grouchy beast :-(
Then we had a 7.0 earthquake on the one night we were due to get a good nights sleep and of course my poor boy was totally freaked out by that (so was Mummy!). It felt like some giant had picked up our house and shook it, for what seemed like an age. Scary! No major damage though - just a crack in the ceiling upstairs. Sigh.
So due to the above mentioned horrible things, we have been trying extra hard to have some fun too. We started by going to the movies to see 'Brave', which was brilliant and so funny! Then we wrapped up warm in our woollies and hit the beach to watch the giant waves, search for treasures like seashells and sea glass. We bought our trusty thermos of hot chocolate with us and tried to eat our sandwiches without the wind blowing too much sand in them - I figure its extra fibre right?
So needless to say I have once again been neglecting my blog and my lovely blog reading, but such is life. Sometimes you just need to stop, hug the ones you love and forget about everything else.
Hope your all have a great weekend! Becks xxx
