This should have been posted a few days ago but since returning from Hanmer Springs last weekend I have been laid low with a cough and chest infection.
Abraham and I drove down to Hanmer Springs on Thursday 8th to spend the weekend amongst old friends and to collect Bronwen who had been down there for a week’s break. It was a great weekend with Abraham tall enough to ride the hydroslide, and there was enough snow for him to careen down the slopes on his sled. We came home via the Kaikoura and Blenheim. We discovered a wonderful seal nursery at Ohau Point and eventually arrived home on Tuesday afternoon.
My chest infection started getting worse on Sunday night and on Monday evening I spent a few hours at Blenheim Hospital Emergency Dept getting the breathing under control. The rest of this week has been lying low to combat the infection and also to allow my body to recover from the chemo.
I am so grateful that we were able to make the trip last weekend. I definitely could not have done it this week.
