I am really loving the spell of fine weather - an autumn treat as the leaves change colour around the city. We feel as if summer hardly got started this year so got to make the most of every day we can.
Poppy and Jess made some friends at the dog park... there were seven of them!
We spent a lovely day at Sumner Beach yesterday. Hot sun, beautiful scenery and a relaxing afternoon.
Quiet day today after a very late chat with my Mother in England. She has sent me piles of lovely pictures of all my relatives and ancestors and it was good to chat and have a giggle together and catch up on her news.
Blair, my nephew has got a job in Auckland, so will be leaving us soon. Alex and I went to Mum and Dad's for fresh scones with jam and cream and James and Jess came over. I took all the new family photos over to show them - it's a novelty for them to see their family resemblances too. We also looked back at all the Kent ancestry too for Dad and Blair. It was a peek into a way of life that has gone; history captured in letters and photos. It made us wonder how we will look back at our lives today - blogs, social media, digital photos - what will our grandchildren all look at? The back ups we keep are never seen by anyone !
I got these pics of the Marlborough Sounds as I flew over on Thursday - you can just see the Interislander Cook Strait ferry in the channel crossing from Picton to Wellington.

It is graduation week for us so we have reunions with our classes and formalities to look forward to :). I love seeing them all again. It is a timely reminder of why we do the work we do. Congratulations are definitely in order for all of them.
Have a great week!
