Speaking words of wisdom, let it BE.

They say the simplest things in life are often the best. And the older I get, the more I think they are right. So often we are bogged down with the minutinae of everyday life and the luxury to stop for a second just isn’t there. Some days it’s all I can do to get the house in order, dinner sorted for that night and paperwork attended to in the office. Stopping for a second to spend some ‘let it be’ time is simply not possible and is the furthest thing from my mind!

I mention this because I am having an incredibly self-indulgent second visit to New Zealand (courtesy of The Provider’s insistence that I do it, God love him) to attend a 30th reunion of a radio station that I used to work for over 20 years ago. I’m here for a week so it’s officially ‘let it be’ time as of now. Very conveniently, JT and his Gorgeous Girl live an hours drive away from where the reunion is being held so I’m hanging out here for a few days with them. The Sweet Pea has grown so much in the 6 weeks it’s been since I saw her last – her gurgles and smiles are truly life-changing for the lucky beholder. 🙂

I have brought my camera so shall record a few shots of the stunning – and OMG, I had forgotten how stunning it is – scenery in Queenstown. Stay tuned, darlings. I will share some pics SOON.

    Happy time, dearest lady. Don't think of it as self-indulgent. It's part of what you're meant to do. I hope you reconnect with some important people of your youth (coz it was so looooong ago) and have great fun with your family. Especially the newest member of it.

    Yes please for the pics.

    Chat soon, hon x

    Yay! I'm glad you got to go again, especially when the little one is still so little. I bet you saw changes already?
    How was the other reunion? I bet you were charming and a hoot.

    It's amazing how much babies change in 7 weeks – the Sweet Pea is SMILING and COOING now and it's all I can do not to eat her, lol.

    The reunion was simply brilliant and I had a fantastic time talking about days gone by. They really were the 'golden years' of radio. :o)
