My sister Veronica took this photo just after Don's funeral . Its of my little Kiwi niece Tessa and myself colouring in.
She is the prettiest little girl...but then aren't all little kids like this?
I do miss the times I had with our two girls as little kids, we would spend ages doing this stuff...there were no pre schools much then, and you weren't expected to be a rocket scientist, a gourmet chef and a mother all at the same time...slower times...
I think our family needs a new generation of kids, and my eldest Melissa is on notice...she will finally marry this November , after post phoning her wedding which was planned 19th May 07, two days after Don died.
Maybe we humans are like that, seeking new life for the family after death if that makes sense...as if to ward off that shadow of annihilation or something like that.
And yes the glass of De Bertolli Columbard Chardonnay at $15 a cask was delightful.
