In more ways than one.
My sister stayed Sunday night, so while she was here to look after the kids Jon and I jumped in the car and went for a drive to the Mount. We haven't been since last summer, and there have been quite a few changes. Normally we would have been to the beach several times so far, but the weather just hasn't played the game. We went for a walk around the mountain, had a Danish Cone, mmmmmmmm, and had some dinner. There is this great little place called Zeytins, and there is one in Tauranga too, on the strand. I'd never been, but it was recommended, glad we went. I had a Roast Vege & Chicken salad, so it was kind of like a green vege salad, with roast vege, and chicken, mmmm, that was good. It was very reasonably priced, and the staff were great, good atmosphere, quite casual.
The other 'date', (thankfully, after having another attack last night) is a date for my gallbladder surgery, Valentines Day of all days!!! It will just be an overnight stay, at the Southern Cross Hospital in Hamilton, as it is just keyhole surgery, fairly straight forward if everything goes OK.
Cameron has gone off to camp today. I've spent the last 3 days convincing him it was going to be fun, as he was dead against the idea, however, today he seemed quite keen to go. I hope it all goes well for him, 'cause if it doesn't, I'll never get him to go again. I took these photos as we dropped him off, but I'm gutted 'cause I had it on the lowest setting, so will have to stage some photos on Friday when we pick him up.
