It’s been a while since I posted, not since mid October in fact. We’ve been away, a long way away. We’ve been to New Zealand to visit Tom, he’s been living and working there for the last couple of years.
My goodness New Zealand is a beautiful country. Lake Wanaka
Sadly, whilst we were away, my brother passed away; when I heard the news, I felt every one of those many, many miles away from my family.
I was comforted to be able to be home for his funeral, which took place yesterday.
Since we’ve been home, the the Whakaari (White Mountain) volcano has erupted, with devastating consequences I’m thinking of the families of those who died and those that face life changing injuries.
I’ve much I’d like to tell you about our time in New Zealand, but for the moment, I’ll just leave this quiet, reflective post here.
