I have such good intentions to get back to regular blogging but i find less time to do i these days with work and family life….
Winter is on its way out (goodbye crazy storms!) and spring is in the air. Its a good time of year as spring signifies new life and rebirth after the winter.
Things are good with us. We are enjoying our lovely house in Kelson with our wonderful views of Belmont Regional park, the abundant bird life and the sounds of the cattle and the sheep from the nearby farms.
Jake is now walking and is zooming around at high speed with great excitement. He is such a healthy happy little boy and brings Ingrid and i great delight and laughter on a daily basis. Recently we had a nice weekend in Martinborough; our first weekend without Jake. It was lovely for us to have quality time as a couple again in such a favourite place of ours. It was strange to somewhere without Jake though! He did very well and loved hanging out with his Auntie Carmen.
My mum is planing to move over here next year which is unexpected but exciting too. It will be great for her and we hope she can buy somewhere near us, although she is also keen on the Wairarapa. Just having her in NZ will make such a difference and we are praying that God is in all of the preparations (and Immigration process).
Work at the Sallies continues to go well and its great to be in a meaningful job that i really enjoy. Its nice to have a quieter period in my work after the busyness of the new website being launched.
My long term back injury has seen a significant improvement thanks to the advice and help of Claire and also the wonderful team at Bodylab here in Wellington. I have been doing a Bodylab personalised rehab programme 3 times a week for the last 6 weeks and its already made a huge difference, not just to the injury i suffered, but also to the historical lower back, spine and hamstring issues i suffer from. I am not pain free yet but know that being dedicated to this programme over the next few months will pay dividends. They are confident that i will be back running and biking again in the not too distant future. I am sticking with their advice so as not to jump the gun and do things ahead of time.
Other than that, not much else to report. I’m glad the Blue Jays dire season is over – the only saving grace was hanging out with the awesome gang at Bluebird Banter. Wellington Lions (only 1 loss in the ITM Cup this year) have a home semi final against Counties Manukau this Friday. Should be great. Bristol rugby have started their new season off under the helm of Andy Robinson, in good style and despite the dinosaur of Sam Allardyce still being in charge at the Hammers, we did spank Spurs the other week, which was very pleasing.
Oh, and i went to see Gravity the other day; probably the best film I’ve ever seen in a cinema. Truly amazing! I even got do a professional review; read it here.
