Another 4-day week

Waitangi Day rolls around on the 6th Feb every year in NZ, to commemorate the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi (NZ's founding document) in 1840.  Whatever the occasion, it means a public holiday for us and the timing couldn't have been better what with Mumsie and Popsie only having one more week with us.  It was lovely to let the day unfold in whatever form it took; today we did some spontaneous gardening which ended up being quite a drastic trim of several bushes.  Caleb took the photos.  At lunchtime we reckoned that we'd earned some sort of reward so went to McDonalds, then there was a bit of Farmers and PaknSave shopping to do.  Mom and I made biscotti in the afternoon (that last batch disappeared way too quickly) and Dad and I went to Harvey Norman to get some photos developed.  We had to go twice because the first time we went with an empty flash drive to the machines - doh!  Slow-cooked soup and bread for tea, and the sun finally came out for the first time during our evening devotions.  We might even get a sunset tonight!
