It is now the evening of day two, week two of lockdown in New Zealand. This is Friday April 2nd and tomorrow night, Saturday April 3rd, we come to the end of daylight saving time.

Good Intentions

I was so full of good intentions for the school holidays. However, not only have those two weeks gone by, but it is now Saturday afternoon following the first week back at school! To be fair, I did actually get a lot done. The problem is that I didn’t spend much time at all catching… Continue reading Good Intentions
