I Love Mondays…

It’s all about perspective and mine has certainly changed.  Not in some deep, life altering kind of way(although I am hoping some type of personal growth is happening but I am too tired to notice), but in a shallow good God do I LOVE Monday’s way.

In the States, I adore Friday afternoons when the kids are home and we are gearing up for our weekends.  Weekends that involve lots of togetherness, relaxation and at times forced family bonding.  I love our weekends!!!  And that is exactly what happens here in New Zealand, just less one very capable parent…I was raised by a single Mother so you can imagine there is no sympathy from that camp, especially since this arrangement is temporary.  Oh and did I mention that my very lovely flat has no back yard.  This means that staying home for a few hours involves conversations like “No tv kids.  Why not Mum?  Because it’s a beautiful day.  So let’s go do something. EErrrrr…” So to all the single parents out there, or the 2 that are reading my blog, you are AMAZING!!!!!!

Luckily I pride myself on my planning skills and Wellington is an incredibly vibrant city with so much to do.  But still…

So here are a few photos from this weekend which involved a drive around the bay’s, breakfast on the beach, a visit to our neighbourhood fair for overpriced fudge and some face painting, 2 park visits, an impromptu cricket game(watching Tate “baseball pitch” a cricket ball was comedy!), walking around the city, Poppy’s hip hop class, afternoon tea at Nana’s and Hell’s pizza.  You read that last one correctly American friends.  Their slogan-Go Straight to Hell…how do you think that would go down in the US of A?
