In case anyone is wondering, I have all my girls back in Wellington now.
At Masterton at the weekend Bella would not leave me alone – not seeing me for 5 days obviously had quite an effect. Rosa is too young to really notice – maybe – and Becky was just pleased for another set of hands and support (such as it is from me: I’m not always good, shall we say, at spotting the opportunities to be helpful).
And funny how the absence of them affected me – I really felt apathetic about everything all week, and despite having really good opportunities to do so I never slept well. Things just seemed a bit pointless. And it was cold. (I probably should have turned the heater on, but I was being frugal. Och-aye.)
But enough whining.
