Which means goodbye….. One of those ‘awesome for you fellas, not so awesome for us‘.
Last night we said good-bye to Aunty Nommy (my sis) and Uncle Alex who are off on a grand adventure to Holland.
I am very blessed in that I get to be in a family where my siblings are also very close friends.
So we made them a ‘kiwi cake’. It wasn’t until I travelled that I discovered how attached us kiwis seem to be to confectionery, especially chocolate with marshmallows.
As a non-pav eater I liked this as a kiwi send off.
When they arrived for dinner they played the boys a song uncle Alex had composed and recorded using their voices and Flip on the harmonica. Having a composer for an uncle is SO cool!!! Maximum street cred here.
I love that they are off on an adventure together… I love that skype means we’ll still get to see each other…. I love that I am ‘babysitting’ some jewellery, art, furniture and kitchen stuff….. I love that you only feel sad about goodbyes when you really love the people leaving.
N and A may you find in your adventures a welcoming horizon and a vista that surprises and delights you at every turn.
We love you. very. much. x
