On Thursday just after 7am the boys and I set off to the airport to pick up Ian. We arrived there just before 8 o'clock despite the rush hour traffic, but Ian's plane was running 20 minutes late. It was really good to see Ian again and to catch up with all his news from the UK. The boys were glad to see him too. Today we've been catching up on really exciting things like washing. Ian and the boys have gone to Upper Hutt to the bank and to buy me a calligraphy pen to write some Toastmasters certificates for the Division conference tomorrow!
