(Keirō no hi)
so it was fitting that my kids were at their grandparents house for the morning.
I spent the 24 hours that they were gone sewing and watching DVDs of the West Wing. A friend of mine lent me the entire set of all seven seasons. I don't have to give it back in a hurry yet I find myself watching it like a maniac who only has days to live. I stayed up so late that I slept in this morning and missed the rubbish collection. Mr Mee a Bee hasn' t noticed yet.
Catching up on my emails this evening I spent a bit of time chuckling over the latest interview on Expat Interviews. A German-Paraguayan now living in Dunedin, NZ has some interesting comments to make about the New Zealand work ethic and way of life. It was quite revelatory as I had never viewed my home country that way.
Tonight I think I will be able to squeeze in another few episodes of The West Wing and possibly some more sewing. Hopefully tomorrow I will actually finish some things so I have something to show. Sewing in bulk as I am now is a slow process in some ways. It takes a few days to get an actual completed item but you end up with a whole pile of lovely new things. I love it.
