So it all seems to have been worthwhile. I stayed up very late last night talking to my parents and Viv's parents. As usual, my father had lots of questions about the world and how things have changed over the years. It's always interesting to hear, but the time difference between England and New Zealand means that these phone conversations always go on late into the night.
Here, it's breakfast time, time to rehearse the reading for David for church this morning time and, of course, coffee time. A beautiful loaf has just been removed from the bread-maker.
More later, if I'm not mistaken.
