Sorry about the unintentional absence here on my blog..... These last 3 or so weeks have been a little difficult for me to get through as it's been a whole year since my life was turned upside down which I blogged about here. We escaped for an extended weekend away to our favourite beach a couple of weeks ago and once we got there it was so nice to be back in this peaceful remote beach again. The above photo of my girls is taken on a walk at the northern end of Piha.
We also took along my parents who hadn't been back to stay in Piha for a few years. My Dad wasn't up to any walking but Mum did the waterfall walk with Caitlin and I one afternoon.
On our last morning I managed an early morning walk up the lookout track above the gap ....
I love the shadows created on these cliffs by the sun rising up from the hills behind.
So just when I thought I was about to get back to a some what normal schedule my Dad was taken to hospital with a couple of broken bones after falling in the middle of the night earlier last week. There is more to this story than I will share here but he is on the mend for now and getting rehabilitation to prepare to be at home again. So I have been busy travelling back and forwards to hospital with Mum although now he is thankfully at a closer hospital in Thames. On the plus side Mum has been staying with the girls and I for nearly a week which is nice for both her and us to spend time together and my Dad has been busy being my sales representative and giving out my business cards to nurses and fellow patients. He was getting admiring comments on his bible cover that I made for him for Christmas which has led to 2 orders for diary covers for a fellow patient and his brother. Yay I love custom orders!
Be back soon to show the sewing that I have managed to get done these past couple of weeks.
