We left Nelson with very heavy hearts for the drive down to Christchurch, but actually the beautiful scenery on the way was so therapeutic. The sea around Kaikoura was every shade of blue and grey, and the autumn colours through the vineyards of Marlborough were golden and warm. We arrived as the evening set in, and went to Mum's place to see how she was doing. She is so amazing, she has everything organized. The first job that we got onto today was doing jobs around the garden. I love these pumpkins and butternuts in the shed, they are so cheerful and bright. I brought some sewing down with me to doodle around with in the evenings, but I haven't done any yet what with all the drinking wine, reminiscing, and feeling sad together. "Now say something pithy and wise" said my sister, who is supervising my blogpost tonight.
Okay then. "Always watch where you walk at the dump". That's a story for another post.
