It's a big day today. It's my turn to host the antenatal group afternoon tea. I get a bit to caught up in getting ready for these things, so I was trying to get on top of the housework earlier that usual. I was even hanging out washing at 8:30 – very early for me. While out at the clothes line, there was a strange noise overhead, not unlike a blow torch on crème brulee, and there it was.
And I looked, and there were more balloons.
How close were they? About this close:
It's the Wairarapa Balloon Fiesta at the moment. When little E is bigger, I hope to go and see them launching. For now, this is exciting enough for me. I don't think anything else would have had me looking so intently at the sky and it is such a wonderful day.
Some would say there is a moral, something along the lines of “isn't it nice to get the housework done early?”. Me, I'm just stoked that it is such a beautiful Autumn day.
