When a dear friend who is living in Christchurch for six months in a beautiful flat with a spare toom invited me to stay in February, it took mere moments for me to change the New Windows label on the savings to New Zealand.
The fact that it is summer in New Zealand in February added to the thrill.
I'm not quite down to earth yet, but give me a few days and I'll sort out my photographs and my head (and my sleep patterns).
Have any of you been to New Zealand? Or followed the sun in February? It is sunny at home too and quite warm, and I have been grounding myself with some gentle gardening.
Thank you for the lovely welcome home messages.
