I phoned a friend today to ask for a favour and I nearly made her cry. (She was feeling blue anyway, so I'll not take all the credit). But as we chatted and laughed about kids I realised how lucky I have been since moving back to Tauranga. I've met some fantastic people and have one or two lovely friends that I'd do anything for. It is what makes getting up every day and dealing with children, parents, school, pre-school, work and myself so much easier.
I don't think I made an ounce of difference to my special friend, but if she reads this she'll know there's one more person who cares . . . a lot!
