22ND FEBRUARY 2011 - This morning felt a bit more human and had some needed sleep.  Its very overcast outside today.  I jump on the internet and update my facebook status to say:  “Thank you to everyone who remembered my birthday. Material things are so meaningless when you don't have your beautiful daughter saying "Happy Birthday Mummy" and giving you a big hug and a kiss. Now that is worth more than anything in the world BUT I can only dream about it. Its hurts and I wish all celebrations of the year weren't so tough but they are. Love you princess with all my heart, Mummy xxxxxxxx”.

Well that is exactly how I felt yesterday.  We went to Huka Falls and Craters of the Moon today and then Troy went to the lake to take some photos.  We hear that Christchurch has had an earthquake and we are shocked.  The poor city has been hit again.  We were going to go to Christchurch in only a few weeks time.  We are lucky we are not there.  I emailed and text everyone to let them know we are ok.  Its horrible news.  A day at home to chill out is what we need.  

23RD FEBRUARY 2011 - I am so over the snorning and no sleep.  A slack day in our unit. Later in the afternoon I walked across the road to take some sunset photos and that was about the most energetic thing I did.   

I got the sad news that my cousin's husband passed away. I am so shocked.  He was way too young.  My heart goes out to Maria and her family.  

24TH FEBRUARY 2011 - We pack up and leave for smelly Rotorua.
