I have spent much of the weekend in bed or lying on the sofa ... sick! There goes the things to do list ... which was mainly Christmas related. Tomorrow I think I will be staying home as well, as my throat feels awful and the headache is still cracking. I did manage breakfast out briefly, which was nice, we hadn't been to Arum for a while and I like it's location in a garden centre and it is quite quiet. On the way back I did spot that our local organic butcher is now open on a Sunday, so we called in and the Turkey and Christmas meat order is complete.
This Christmas is our second in Kohukohu, and we are both really excited about being back in the village for a fortnight. It it likely that I will have to cut this short and return to Auckland due to a member of my team being terminally ill ... there is not much to say here given the circumstances ... But we loved our time in the village last Christmas, the sense of community, the sense of living by the tides, the view, friends and relaxing.
The next few weeks are full of the normal chaos before the Summer and Christmas break ... so I need to recover from this flu bug quick.
Work is going strangely well ... more on that another time. Oh and I think I have added a new photo album to the blog roll!
