So NZ voted, and we get to keep the old flag, the one with the union jack on it rather than changing to the new modern flag. It has been an interesting exercise and mum is sure that in the future it will change, just now is not the right time. Maybe in another 10-20 years when there are less war veterans around, and the Queen will have maybe retired (we know she says never), change will come.
In the meantime at Chez Q the builders are still here, and I am still running away when they come, which mum says is silly as I could stay inside and not be disturbed, but I am happy under the deck, and mum makes sure she is home at 6pm, when they pack up so I can come back inside. She says that I seem to be quite happy. I eat my dinner and then catch some zzzs in my box. She was nice and did not put this one in the recycling.
The builders didn't arrive til after 10am this morning, which was good, mum was able to do the dishes and washing, and then she headed out for a walk and went to the cinema to see 10 Cloverfield Lane with a whole lot of 20 year olds skiving off Uni, mum felt like a high school teacher. It was ok- mum thought it would be scarier, but still she was surprised and didn't know which direction it would go in.
So now Easter weekend, and mum is going to take it easy with books and movies. She realized that she is exhausted - it has been a pretty hectic three months and she needs some down time. Hope you all have some nice things planned. Do you get the weekend off? It is a four day holiday here in NZ - we get Friday and Monday off work.
