It was sunny today! It’s been days since we’ve had blue skies at Piccolo – what a blissful pleasure to have them back. I couldn’t just sit inside all afternoon working on application forms (and I’m pleased to say that they are nearly done – the clouds are indeed parting!), so in the afternoon Nick and I went out and took a few pics. Also socialised around the trampoline with Clare, DT and Alison which was great. School seemed long this morning during the first session – the spelling has been getting a little more difficult and Caleb particularly struggles with it sometimes. He is the one who needs occasional reminding to check his attitude. But otherwise it was fine. I had to pop out to town early afternoon to run more emigration-based errands, stopping in at the manse to collect a box of books where I took this photo from the bathroom window: and then on to Steve and Maureen to collect more documentation. This is their gorgeous house aptly named ‘Tranquility’ nestled in the greenery.
