In an attempt to make it equally informative, but without so much time, I will at the very least up load pictures and captions of my tale.
Since December I have: gone to the South Island to back country trek (which was a little more adventurous than I had expected or wanted with some terrible weather to boot), had a relaxing and beautifully weathered birthday, and spent the first weekend of February at the biggest party of my life, down in Wellington for the International Rugby Board Sevens Tournament. February brought about Mia's first birthday, followed by a trip to Hawaii with a friend on her way home and a week stopover in Colorado before returning on Monday the 4th at 5am and promptly starting up with work again a 9am.
All is well here and the kids are continuing to grow, amaze and challenge me. I have signed another contract to stay on up until they find a replacement for me or 1 August.
