Sorry to disappear like that. Very rude of me. I snuck off with the family to the beach.
My beautiful neice, Caitlyn and my wonderful parents are here for a visit from Brisbane.
It's not often we get sunshine in the school holidays so we grabbed the chance and went up to Matakana for a few days.
I didn't forget about you... honest.
And I did miss you all.
But it really was very nice to spend the time poking at stuff rock pools...
We went horse riding and air kissed gorgeous donkeys
and we did a lot of playing on things that make you feel puffed and a little bit ill.
I couldn't even get reception on my cellphone unless we went up a big hill.
I'm back though and it's lovely to see you all. How have you been this week?
