Kia Ora!


This is Blenheim, where my mother - the Groovy Grandma - lives. It is a small town situated near the top of New Zealand's south island and lies smack bang in the middle of the Marlborough wine district, an area well-known for its world-class savignon blancs. It is also, very fortuitously for me, the home of Oyster Bay wines... so you can bet I'll be popping over for a wee visit before I leave here. *g*


Today, however, finds the rain beating a rhythmic thrum on the roof of my mother's house so we have planned to spend a day inside. Our gorgeous Sweet Pea has been fed and wrapped; currently she is enjoying a cuddle with the Groovy Grandma whilst waiting for some pesky hiccups to subside. The contented look on my mother's face says it all. :o)


Seriously, you can't get better than this. I feel very lucky to share these special early days; you really can't put a price on things like that, can you? My brother is a very happy man these days - and rightly so. It's a pretty awesome thing when all the planets align and life just works. Meeting the Gorgeous Girl for the first time has been a joy for me, too - I am thrilled to reveal she is truly as her moniker here suggests. It seems incredible to say but even though I've only known her for a few days, it seems like we are already close - she has a warm heart and a beautiful soul and along with their Sweet Pea, I just love them already. *g* It will be very hard to say goodbye to this new little family when they leave for home on Monday. :(


Spoke to The Provider last night and it sounds like things are running (more or less) like clockwork... he has even fixed a few things around the house that I have been waiting for him to do for a looong time so perhaps this means I need to go away more often! LOL. Nice to know that they're all okay, though... means I can relax a little easier. *g*
