Well hello again!  Sounds like you had a pretty fantastic day.  Kelly Tarltons is cool, and well done Leigh with the Auckland traffic!  and probaly managing a wheelchair in and out of the car too!  A couple of weeks ago I dropped the boys off at school put Stella in the car and went home only to find I had driven off and left Stellas pram on the side of the road!!! (A kind friend saw and discreetly dropped it off to me Thankgoodness).  Off to stack the wood tomorrow I have heard that Sean would like a sleep-in so will head up mid morning.  Kody is staying the night at Kories place and they were going out to the observatory tonight to look at the stars! Sending down all our love, strength and positive vibes!  Call me if you need to vent some steam!  Enjoy tomorrow too.  Trudi, Brian, Kody, Ben and Stella xxxxx

Just popped in to say good morning and it sounds like you had a lovely time at the domain, I was wondering if thoes pigeons pooped on ya head Rory?!?!  Because I hear that they do a lot of that! tee hee hee.  Anyway someone once told me that it is good luck to be pooped on by a bird! So bring on the poop!  By the way we were so happy that you liked the stone Korie sent down, he has put his new stone on his science table.  Have a great weekend guys.  Love and hugs Kathryn and Korie xox

Well COOL Rory what a neat day!  Kody is in bed now but he will have a look here 1st thing in the morning!  He looks forward to catching up with you and hearing about what you get up to with this neat website.  Tonight we (Trudi,Kody,Ben and Stella...Dad stayed home!) went out to the Tangiteroria Bistro for dinner, all the grown ups sit down and talk and all the kids (and I mean ALL the Kids!) run around inside and outside like crazy yelling and laughing. The kids get chicken nuggets or hot dogs and Icecream and jelly.  Tonight a boy kicked a rugby ball inside! It banged down on a table and all the plates of chips flew into the air...very funny but I couldnt laugh too much...Cause I am a grown up!  He got into trouble.  Sometime this weekend we will go and stack your firewood so you can have a nice warm winter at home.  love and hugs The Johnstons.  Take heaps of photos Rory!  Kody will be sooo jealous!

Hi Rory, Leigh, Sean & Sam
I work with Heather in the Hospice Shop so we have heard all about you! We want to send you our love, best wishes & prayers. I have also forwarded your website address to my cousin Ruth Wilkinson who may also send you a message. But more importantly, she will pass it on to her daughter-in-law Tania & her son Daniel who went through a similar operation to you about 5 years ago. They will know exactly what you are all experiencing & will be able to emapathise completely.
Our love to you all, enjoy this weekend of lovely fine weather. All the very best for the next operation.
Bob & Barbara Martin
