Well… that is a Mother’s day I will never ever forget!
I took Mum to church in the morning and she was really not well. I got her home and back to bed and was feeling the day was not going quite as planned as I was hoping to bring her home to my place for brunch.
Can you imagine my surprise when I pulled up the driveway and saw Katie standing at the top of the drive……
The little monkey drove down from Christchurch to surprise me for Mother’s day. What a MAGICal day we had! We had a stunning brunch and got some great family photos on the back lawn.
I got another gorgeous heart for dream of an aroha wall from Jason and he helped my hang my collection to date. This really has been a very special Mother’s day full of love and time together and the creation of very special memories.
Katie and I went to surprise Mum and owe what a surprise it was for her. She was sooo excited to see Katie again!
We spent the afternoon chatting and catching up and as the afternoon wore on I began to dread the thought of Katie having to drive all the way back to Christchurch on her own! I hopped onto the Air New Zealand site and booked myself a flight home from Christchurch for Monday! YAHOO! Katie and I fitted in two visits to Lauren and Nana, had a coffee at Starbucks then headed off for Christchurch! What an awesome drive. We talked non stop the whole way. We had a yummy dinner in Timaru and arrived at Katie’s flat by 9.30.
What an incredible Mother’s day. I got up early and worked online for the morning then shot out and fueled up her car, took it through the carwash and bought her a tiny oil filled heater to take the chill off her bedroom.
Back to work online, dealing with my emails, planning school visits for the term and updated online. I am truly in love with the power to work in a fully blended way. It really doesn’t matter where in the world I am, as long as I have an internet connection I can work.
At 5pm Katie dropped me to the airport and here I am flying home. What an absolutely incredible Mother’s day! One I sure will never forget!
Thank you Katie! You are a truly wonderful daughter!
