Mum had another busyish night last night and finally got home around 6am. She had a touch of breakfast and then managed about 3 hours sleep, making a grand total of 5 hours sleep in the past two nights. She did arise in time to watch on the tele of the royal little family arriving in Wellington. They were lucky as it was cloudy and misty, weather that often closes our little airport.
They are staying at Government house, which mum lives just across the road from (a 2 minute walk away). So as she had her shower she could hear the band playing, then the haka and while I was having a snuggle there was a cannon going off!!! Such excitement!! I was good and didn't run and hide. Mum was enjoying my first snuggle of the winter, the first time I have sat on her knee for about 8 months.
We are not sure that we will be catching up with the family, they need their privacy after all, but we will keep you up to date on their visit.
Mum has to go into work for about 2.5 hours, then she will be home again and things will be back into a normal routine again.
