i can't believe we've waited so long to do this. for the first time this year, i picked all the kiddos up from skool at lunchtime and we did that friday thing we used to do. although the sky was a bit grey for the beach, so we rendevous-ed at the skate rink.
when we first moved to The Sunny Bay from The Big Smoke on a whim, six and a half years ago, a group of beautiful women immediately drew me and mine into their hearts and we drew them into ours. the instant sisters. we did maori on mondays and drama on tuesdays and steiner on wednesdays and we beached it on fridays. uh, thursdays? we had to stay home one day a week.
today we waved another of the long-haired-freebies off to skool, and sneaked a glass of wine, and watched kids monkeying all over the walls, and reminisced about the crazyness of the last six years together, watching our babies growing into fine young people.
i want to turn the clock back.
