the first of march!!!
my boy will be 3 soon...
So much has happened this last year..
I can tell we have started to settle in and chill since I now have time to worry about other people outside my immediate family!
My Aunt lost her house in the christchurch quake but thankfully she and my cousins are all ok.
As ok as you can be when your beautiful house crumbles to the ground only a couple of years after your husband passes away.
Now that we live in a high fire risk area the thought that we could loose everything quite quickly is often on my mind.
We cling to the thought that as long as we are all ok then sod the belongings.
I'm pretty sure that the reality is a little different and that the stress of having to start again at the mercy of the insurance companies is less than favorable!
A shitty thing to have to deal with in your 70's
(Mind you if anyone is capable of bollocking the insurance goons my Aunt is...
You should hear her giving the call center dudes a serve...'you should NOT send such letters to the elderly, it confuses us'.)
My heat goes out to my Tante Ria and my cousins (and the call center dudes)
