By the Water

Mum spent a week of her holidays with her dad beside the water at the lovely lake Taupo.  Being by the mountains, it is always a bit cool there, but the sun shone on enough days to make it enjoyable and the fresh air and relaxation is always needed.

So it was haaaaaaaaaaaard for mum to get up this morning.  Made harder by the fact that she did not turn out her light til 1am.  Then I woke her up at 4.47am as my biscuit bowl was empty and at 5:20am to tell her that it was raining outside.  Then her alarm sounded loudly at 6am, so mum admitted defeat and got up.  So tonight after dinner she crashed out asleep on the couch for an hour.  Early to bed tonight it is for us.

Happy birthday to big Uncle tonight - 21 again!!!  We love you!!
