1) I’m feeling tired and a bit drained after a busy morning, including a trip to the airport to drop K off, and I’ve developed a headache. The kids take care of me though, sending me off to lie down and bringing me a cool pack to put over my eyes. I feel very loved.
2) Teaching the kids geography as we track K’s flight across the world. We spend time pouring over maps, figuring out which countries are where, and K’s possible flight path.
3) With gifts of plums from my Dad and from a friend, I spend the afternoon transforming 3.5kg of plums into plum chutney. I use the recipe from the Edmonds Cookbook – an NZ cookbook that “every kiwi bride needs”, or so I was told when I was given it on my marriage to K!
