Catch up

Well, I have been rather "caught up" in daily goings on lately so haven't really had a chance to sit down and blog.  I had all these "drafts" written up..or half written, which I have decided to delete ...and I will just carry on like I never missed a day...heehee. :)

**These pics were taken 7 years ago to the day...hour in fact!! in Nottingham on Warren's birthday** 

So...one of my very best friends is now living back in the country...FINALLY!  And we seem to be forever missing each other.  She has phoned me on many occasions since they've been back, but always when I'm out, so leaves a message...never leaving her phone number!  Now this would be okay if she were LISTED in the whitepages, but oh no she's not.  I do however have her sisters on my facebook, so finally finally after a number of months, I have a phone number for her courtesy of her little sis Dom...((Thanks by the way Dom!))

I dropped Master5 off to school this morning, came home, stoked up the fire, tidied up and then set about phoning Debs for our "catch up".  Now a catch up between Debs and I is never a "quick" thing.  Those who know me know how much I loathe loathe LOATHE long lengthy phone calls.... always have, can't help it.  But with my friend, Imake an allowance. 
We had our call.........and an hour 20 later I thought I should go and put Miss 1 in her cot since she'd climbed off my lap onto the ground and had fallen asleep...all without me being aware of it!!!  Man oh man, where does the time go when you're enjoying great company!? 
My other question was...how did she manage lengthy phone calls with a newborn and a preschooler (and 2 at school)?? She's super multitasking woman that's for sure!!

I haven't seen Deb for ages.  We did our nursing training together back in the early 90s (geez that sounds forever ago)  went to the same church... did the same stuff. :) 
When Warren and I were in the UK in 2003 we went and stayed in Nottingham with Debbie and John and they just had Levi then.  We had some great fun and laughs with them.  That was the first time Warren had got to meet them and he felt very "at home" with them.  He even taught Debs how to "burp" Levi properly!! hahaha.

So since then we caught up very briefly on the odd occasion when they have been in Whangarei, 2 or 3 times.  But NOW....they are living in New Zealand again, and we can resume our visitations!! :) heehee.
Can't wait to see their new bub Abigail, she sounds pretty scrummy...and also to see the other 3 boys.... Crazy how we've gone from single girls to married Mummys.... (her with double the amount of kids to myself)...
Can't wait to catch up....xxx

The Old days....


  1. Thats awesome hun that you guys got to catch up..by the way did you know that John (Hone) is my cousin? Its a small world aye..

  2. I have heard so much about debs and John from Muzza. They sound like such a great couple. Catching up with old friends feels so good and right doesn't it. Like putting on a pair of comfy slippers.
    PS I am missing having a fire to stoke and snuggle up in front of.

  3. Wow - flashback!! I remember her but didn't realized she married John! He was one of my brothers besties - awesome!!
